Turks and Caicos, May 19, 2017 – Providenciales – A $55 million dollar investment by Grace Bay Resorts will bring a new luxury tourism experience to Providenciales and they are calling it Rock House TCI. It will mean up to 250 full time jobs during construction within a year, and 120 jobs at the residence resort when all of the work is done in three years.
Executives of Grace Bay Resorts held an announcement event despite the muggy weather on Wednesday and showed off what will be one of the more amazing features of the newest property to come along the rocky shores down Cherokee Road, which is near the Leeward Highway location of ScotiaBank. That feature, an uninterrupted and elevated view of Provo waters.
Mark Durliat is the CEO and promised that the last thing their engineers are worried about is whether the design can be cradled in rocky ridge, and shared that at the end of construction, 74 keys will be available for guests in three residential designs.
On hand for the announcement was Premier Sharlene Robinson, who commended Grace Bay Resorts for expanding the tourism potential of Providenciales by being among the developers with faith in what International Drive can become for the destination.
Tourism Minister, Ralph Higgs was also there and echoed similar sentiments, saying the Rock House is the perfect example of what can be achieved with faith in the destination and that Grace Bay Resorts and its Grace Bay Club is very much a part of the world renowned success of Providenciales in the area of ultra-luxury living and escapes; he congratulated GBR on this latest investment.
Minister Higgs guaranteed government support. Rock House Turks and Caicos has residences, which will double as resort rentals starting from $600,000 and is already with 35% commitment from the global marketplace.
