Asjes: ‘Actual construction hospital begins in January’

Premier AsjesWILLEMSTAD - The actual construction of the new hospital begins in January. This is according to the Prime Minister of Curacao, Mr. Ivar Asjes. The building permit was filed on December 23, says Asjes, so it will take six weeks, but in the meantime, we have continued with the preparation for the construction.

First, the existing site will be addressed and in June 2014 the contractors will begin with the demolition of the apartments in Colon. “Everyone is willing to cooperate and to find a solution for alternative accommodation.”

‘Unreasonably high’

On the other side of the property, opposite the apartments in Colon, there are a number of homes and buildings where there was no cooperation for the price the government offered to buy the buildings. Asjes refuse to discuss it in detail, but he does confirm that the prices were unreasonably high.
