Ground- breaking for the Morant Bay Urban Centre is expected to be done in March 2018.

That's the word from chairman of Factories Corporation of Jamaica Ltd (FCJ) Lyttleton 'Tanny' Shirley, who has indicated that due diligence directed that a process be followed which adhered to all the Government policy guidelines.

According to the FCJ chairman, the company is well underway with its major enterprise project.

A news release from FCJ earlier this month said that the entity is now awaiting final approval from the Public Investment Management Secretariat, following which the project will head to Cabinet for final approval.

The FCJ chairman has indicated that the project has so far received overwhelming support, with a number of private sector entities coming on board.

“The demand for the project has been great and we are confident that it will be a major success,” said Shirley.

Over 365,000 square feet will become available at the Morant Bay Urban Centre, which will see an amalgamation of services offered by the public and private sectors.
