Argentine entrepreneur Rolando Gonzalez-Bunster, President & CEO of Basic Energy Ltd., as well as numerous other diversified entities, along with Haiti-based WIN Group, one of the country's largest enterprises, today announced an agreement to develop a 240-room hotel with conference facilities directly adjacent to Port-Au-Prince's Toussaint L'Ouverture International Airport.
The property, scheduled to break ground by the end of 2010, has an 18-month construction window and will be Haiti's first airport hotel. The hotel, which is yet to be named, will be independently operated.
The fully-enclosed, $33 million project will be developed on a 5.3 acre parcel (2.14 hectares), and will be completely self-contained, with on-site power plant, water treatment, sewage, and related facilities.
