Construction projects on STT or STX
I need some help!!
Does anybody know of large construction projects go on or going to start on STT or STX. What I am looking for is the name of the construction companies doing work their. Any help wold be greatly appreciated
what kind of construction? Homes? Condos? Roads? Bridges? Refinery? There are always construction projects of one kind or another. Which are you seeking?
Bridges are being built on STX? Where do they go? 🙂
Ah, come on dntw8, you know...Nowhere! 😉 LOL
Northshore Partners Inc. is a relatively large construction company, for STX at least, who has several projects ongoing at any one time. Currently they are building 30 or so new homes at Hovensa. Their phone number is 340-778-2446. The bridge on STX under construction is part of the Mon Bijou flood control project and spans the mouth of the floodwater runoff diversion area from Blue Mountain.
Thanks everyone for responding.
I am looking for Condo, Hotel, Casino construction companies or construction management companies.
Thanks, JE for Northshore partners! Any other companies would be a great help.
One bridge on STX crosses a huge flood abatement project at the foot of my hill. The project started in June of 2005 and, please God, it will be finished this year.
Typo, Linda.....didn't you mean "finished this decade"?
Is that STILL not finished? As many trips as we made through that area from mid island, I don't think I ever saw anyone actually working there - the equipment was there and lots of pretty orange flags, but no people...maybe that's why it's taking so long, it's a midnight project? HA!
Very funny Becky. It seems like they work on this end for a week or two and the disappear for - whatever! I'm trying to believe that they are working at the other end of the project, near Northside Road. But who knows. And there wasn't much rain last year, so we really don't know if the ditch will solve the problem or not.
I don't care, I just want to go HOME. It's 32 here in Louisville today but at least the sun is shining.
Becky, be sure and call when you get back here. Do you need a place to stay? Just let us know.
Girlfriend - that 32 degrees is looking like a heatwave to me LOL!!! Can't wait to see you and Ric!
And it sounds like they must hire the same road crews that come around here and set up the little cones to force traffic into one lane.............and then disappear for a month!!!
15 days and counting!!!!
the Christiansted bypass road is also underway once again, although I'm not sure they are in full swing yet.
Although there are many development plans in the works for STX, permits still have yet to be issued. As projects move forward, there will be a large need for workers for the construction crews. It's coming... but no specific start dates are noted on the calendar just yet.
Thanks Alexandra... You wouldn't happen to know who (what companies)are applying for the construction permits would you? That would be a great help / great place for me to start.
The developers are mostly from off-island. Some have attached themselves to a local or two to help them through the intricacies of the island system. One of the larger efforts is the Mills of St, Croix project north of Frederiksted that is being backed by the Pequod Tribe that owns the Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut. Their local contact is attorney Kevin Rames. They expect to submit their application along with all scientific studies to the CZM/DPNR office in June or thereabouts. There will still be more rounds of paperwork and public hearings to be done before their application package is complete, so don't expect this permit to be issued in the immediate future.
The Throgmartin project may have fallen apart. The father is retiring and the son is hoping to relocate to STX and is seeking employment with someone so he can develop and manage construction projects here. This info is from an email he sent out to Realtors a couple days ago.
There are some hotel chains looking to open resorts here, but I don't know who the contact people would be for them at this time. It's still too early in the process.
The new condos that were supposed to go in west of Mill Harbour were given a one-year delay as a penalty for starting construction without waiting for their permits. I've heard through a fairly reliable source that they may now just try to sell off the property and bail out of the project.
There is a developer trying to get his permit through to subdivide the 30 or so acres just southwest of Cheeseburgers in Paradise. You can grab one of their fliers at the sign on the site to get their contact info. They say they plan to build pre-sale houses, so if their permit comes through to move forward with the subdivision they will need construction crews.
When my husband finds the time to complete the next round of the permit process on his northshore land, we will be putting in a waterfront condo complex in La Vallee. He had planned to get that going by the end of 2006, but was delayed when he took three months this past fall to bring his sailboat here from Washington State.
The only construction project of any size or complexity going on in St. Croix is the construction of the heart center at the Juan F. Luis Hospital. I have been involved with the project for the past three years. Mr Rames casino / resort project out west is years away from being started due to a number of things, not the least of which is the problems they have encountered regarding the chnages neededfor the road that leads out there. I have enjoyed living here a great deal, but I know I won't be here forever. If Kevin Rames' project gets started before I leave (sometime around the first of 2008), I will be amazed. Don't count on anything happening too quickly, if at all. Hate to be such a cynic, but the impediments to large scale development here practically ensure a complete lack of growth, at least in the foreseeable future.
Thanks.. Alexandra & bnk122!!! It looks like I am out of luck finding any construction management work their. I have lived and worked in Boston for the past 10 years doing large commercial construction projects (condo, hotel, etc...) and it looks like I am not going to find anything of STT or STX. I guess I am going to have to change careers or just stop trying to move their. Is their any businesses hiring their!! Maybe I should look for a job with the permitting department...It sounds like they could really use some help:)
You may be outta luck finding contruction management work(but if you were here you would probably find something in 6 months to a year), but if you are handy you can absolutely find work on any island. Stj still has a huge amount of residental building going on and people are always looking for contractors on stt and stx. I need one myself. Hard to find one that stays or is reliable but thats not much different from stateside. Just a much smaller pool to choose from.
You might try Puerto Rico... friends of mine do plenty of commercial construction there.
Have you been there recently Ed? I was just there the other week and they are going crazy with the taxes. I know I had five different ones on a nightly rate. Apparently the people are getting a little more then fed up there. Plus you better give your confession before you get on the highway there 😉
Si, but the commerchal construction is abailable, no?
I lived there for a couple of years and you quickly get used to the driving! Actually its the "non-driving" or 'tapon' that is most frustrating - San Juan and environs do have some wonderfully creative traffic jams! There is a lot of construction there -new stores, new sub-divisions, hotels etc. Great beaches too.
