Last April Orange Limited, the developer of Pearns Point, organised a grand opening event on site to make some major announcements about the 300 million US dollar project. Over 300 dignitaries and guests were present to show their support for Pearns Point Antigua. The setting was stunning: clear views of the Caribbean Sea and the best location to watch the spectacular Pearns Point Round Antigua Race, which was sponsored by Orange Limited.
Orange Limited’s chairman, His Excellency Mr. Albert Hartog was also proud to announce positive progress in major sales to the Rothschild family and other notable clients, and the start of the infrastructure to be built.
Six months later, the construction of the infrastructure is well underway. Five large containers of materials arrived in May, worth almost 3 million US dollars. Orange Limited has made it a policy to employ local workers to build the roads, electric lines, sewage, etc. Over 40 local workers are currently employed on the site while OBMI and C.O. Williams are overseeing the progress. The infrastructure is expected to be operational by end of 2016.
The Setai founding brothers Jonathan and Michael Breene have been visiting the island and making themselves familiar with the beauty and culture of Antigua. There have been extensive discussions with world class designers about how to shape the 5+ star resort on Pearns Point and the first ideas look spectacular already. We are hoping to release the names of the designers soon as well as the first design concepts. A great start with a fantastic international dream team!
Since the opening event in April, Pearns Point has been topping international press. The best high-end real estate journalists have been raving about Pearns Point and Antigua in several newspapers like the UK’s Daily Telegraph, The Times and the Evening Standard. Lately, Pearns Point has been written about in the UK’s Country Life and WealthX.
The Marketing and Sales team has been promoting the project at international property exhibitions and international residence and CIP summits in London and Dubai.
International interest in this prestigious jewel of the Caribbean has been soaring as Pearns Point will be ‘shared by few and rivalled by none’.
Additionally, Orange Limited is dedicated to continuing the supportive relationship with the local community and the government of Antigua and Barbuda. The company has actively sponsored Antigua’s Sailing Week, the Antigua Rotary Club, the Friends of the Care project, a local football club and the national Police Week. Orange Limited will fulfil its promise to dedicate 1% of all gross sales to local charities.
