Obviously the 'comments' must have been getting nasty, the RG stopped them. My gut says Zane is right about some residences being built before the hotel. I wish he had just asked what year the hotel will open for guests.

My gut says too that Desarrollos and the Government are still negotiating and until Desarrollos has all the guarantees from the Government there will be no ground breaking. Again, the taxpayers will end up bailing out this development just like they had to do for many others.

This is nothing more than BS from the Premier, St.-Regis only has time and and their brand reputation invested in this development. Desarrollos Hotelco is the one who has to come up with the money and build whatever.

There is some major stumbling block with this development and the original cost estimate would have increased substantially. The proposed casino fee is probably another stumbling block too.

At this point it would not be a surprise to hear the development has collapsed.

perhaps they (Desarollos) are waiting to see which gov't will be in power next year? Might get a better deal with a different one?

Fahy got his knickers in a knot over the fact that Senator Ming issued a statement calling for an update on the St. George's hotel project instead of asking him during the Senate sitting earlier in the day. Fahy and the Premier should have been ahead of this and not behind as they always are. Fahy was probably ready with the spin he spins here so why didn't he bring it up, instead he is pissed because he got caught with his knickers down around his ankles and ended up looking foolish.

The Premier and Fahy have the attitude they can get away with their Horse Shit because Bermudians remember all the failed promises from Ewrat on a St. George's hotel. Wait till election time and see if the OBA get away with comparing themselves with the PLP on who was the worst Government, the people's memories only remember the one freshest in their mind.

The RG got to the bottom of this story!  UPDATE: this story has been amended to confirm that developersí amendments were submitted to planning rather than having been approved. The developer is still submitting 'amendments' and final approval is some time in the future.

Now that more reasons for the delay surface, which were obviously known by Fahy, the Premier and others, it opens up more questions about whatelse they are not telling the public? Ewrat and PLP made so many failed promises on a St. George's hotel that Fahy expects not to get criticized for repeating the same arrogance.

This highlites the incompetence of Bermuda governments when it comes to direct involvement in a resort hotel and residence development.  Bang Head
