London & Regional Panama

London & Regional Panama

planea la construcción de una mini ciudad en la antigua Base de Howard.

Jason Mills

director de L&R, dijo que su proyecto se realizara a lo largo de 8 años y que 405 millones seran invertidos.
El desarrollo del area de Howard, una antigua base aerea de la Fuerza Aerea de los Estados Unidos incluye el desarollo del puerto multimodal.
Debido a la existencia de la infraestructura area, que constituye la pista aerea mas grande de latinoamerica con un area de 2.75 km, ademas de la cercania con el canal de Panama, por el cual atraviesa el 60% del comercio hacia y desde Estados Unidos, hacen que el proyecto multimodal se perfile con excelentes expectativas.

El gobierno debe estar por aprobar por consejo de gabinete la ratificacion de este proyecto. Aunque este proyecto tampoco ha escapado del escandalo, por una supuesta relacion con inversionistas colombianos.
Despues del decreto del gobierno panameño, se espera que

London & Regional Panama

, entregue un plan maestro de desarrollo en un período de 3 meses.

Howard Development
London & Regional Panama


"It cannot be overstated that Panama now presents global opportunities non-existing in other neighboring latin american countries since the deprarture of the U.S. Howard, like many other former U.S. controlled sites in the former Canal Zone, have the advandage of haveing most of its former infratstructure in place; ie, residential home sites, buldings, roads, water, electricity, sewage, etc., requiring much less investment than would normally be expected for a development of this magnitude. The former US Air Force Base in Howard is the largest landing strip in Latin America and complete with hangers, towers, etc."

King Fisher Bay - Pearl Islands Panama

Pearl Island Real Estate is truly unique in several ways.
For one, it is veritably unspoiled island real estate. The Pearl Islands have mangaged to remain pristine, beautiful and virtually untouched over the years. Its water´s abound with wildlife such as: sea turtles, whales, dolphins, whalesharks, a huge array of game fish such as marlin, tuna, wahoo and sailfish to name a few. In the jungles of the Pearl Islands you can find such wildlife as, parrots, toucans, deer, iguanas, monkeys, agouties, and anteaters.
The Pearl Islands are also home to an incredible history dating back to the times of the Spanish Explorers. Many of the Pearl Islands served as hiding places for treasures looted by Pirates such as Henry Morgan, Sir Francis Drake and Balboa. In fact, last year a Spanish Galleon with over 50 million dollars worth of treasure was found off the coast of the Perlas Islands. At one point in its history, the Pearl Islands were famous for, you guessed it, pearls. The most famous of the Pearl Island Pearls is a A 31-carat, 400-year-old Peregrine pearl now owned by Elizabeth Taylor. Its previous owners included the Queen of Spain, a French Emperor and an English Queen.
Buying Pearl Island Real Estate is safe. In Panama, all foreign and national investors are guaranteed equal rights by law, furthermore, foreign investors do not require special authorizations, permits or prior registration. Foreign investors are encouraged to, and able to obtain Panamanian residency through several different venues. Additionally, because Panama has the stability of the US Dollar as its currency, a modern and extensive International Banking Center, low cost of living, labor and construction expenses it is one of the best business infrastructures in Latin America and the Caribbean. Additionally, Panama was recently voted one of the top 10 best countries to retire abroad in by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP)

PSA to construct a Megaport in Panama

The harbor giant of Singapur, PSA the International, will construct a terminal of containers in the Panamanian Pacific, informed yesterday the minister into commerce and industry, Alexander Ferrer.The beginning of the construction and cost of the investment, to be made in the area of Rodman, old military base of the United States, not yet has been revealed.PSA is the third singapurense company in settling in Panama, after the company/signature of the Free Trade Agreement between both countries, in 2005.The company handles ports in Singapur, Europe, China and Thailand, is in addition one to the four preclassified to participate in a licitation for the Panamanian project “megapuerto”, which will be constructed in an area of 112 hectares and includes wharves of 1.600 meters in wide length by 750 meters and capacity for the installation and operation of 18 cranes “post Panamax” (ships of more than 160.000 tons).The cost considered of his first stage is of approximately 600 million dollars, and already finished, will allow to the simultaneous dockage of two ships “post Panamax”, that are those that by its size, cannot happen through the sluices of the Panama Canal. The port will allow a maximum openwork of 15.0 meters and will have capacity to handle 2,4 million annual containers.The construction of “megapuerto” contemplates the construction of a marine filling whose cost comes near to the 250 million dollars.Minister Ferrer received the week last to representatives of the company Royal Vopak, independent operator of tanks of product storage derived from petroleum, that showed the possibility of installing a terminal in Panama

Figali and his marina.

marina_figali_amador
photo by La Prensa
Jean Figali, colombian-panamanian investor, whom project development is on a legal hold, not so effective by the way, because although local authorites ordered a suspension of the marine filling he already started to build.

Figali's well known relations with the previous goverment administration, and his "compadre" William Spadafora, member of the Supreme Court, eased his papeword and permissions for the construction.

He argues that the extinct ARI (Autoridad de la Region Interoceanica) gave him all the required permissions to carry on his multimillionaire project. And of course his compadre rules always in his favor, what a convenient law. Thanks god panamanian blood is as cold as fish.

here i attach a translated extract from La Prensa that dates Panama, Wednesday 13 of 2005
"Once again, the Supreme Court of Justice - specifically the Room Third generates controversy. In this occasion one is a case that it has like protagonist to Jean Figali, a member of the circle of friendships of the ex- president of the Republic Mireya Moscoso.
