THE Hexagon Group of Companies yesterday undertook the official dedication ceremony and concrete pouring to kick-start the construction of its commercial shopping complex at its freehold property, Vitivou Estates, at Davuilevu in Nausori.
Group chairman Hafiz Khan said this was the start of the first major commercial construction project at its Nausori property.
“It’s going to cost about $8.5 million and it should be ready by December next year,” Mr Khan said.
He said at this stage there were about 60 to 80 people employed by the contractor and sub-contractors but when it’s up and running with other shops and supermarket they expected to see more people employed.
“This is our first major cross-section project and we also have our residential project where people can buy and build their own houses or we build it for them.”
The complex has been designed keeping in mind the space requirements of commercial tenants and will consist of a modern two-level structure with the ground floor offering a spacious supermarket letting, eight retail shop space, and lots of parking areas.
“The top floor will offer a large hall space with kitchen therefore ideal for conferences, wedding and other functions too, and additional six retail shops.”
Mr Khan said the development was also offering 144 residential lots.
“A number of blocks have already been sold while the remaining lots are up for sale with the project being done in stages.”
The subdivision when completed will have five commercial lots and 144 residential lots and commercial lot 1, on which construction started yesterday, has an area of 3276 square metres.
