We met with Ian to chat about the project and his marketing vision of it. 

TECJ: Why Dominica? 

Ian: I am a born Dominican who has lived overseas for some time and have always had the desire to make a hallmark on my homeland bringing the experiences and expertise that I have gathered over the years. For me in my profession, this means designing and building a property of remarkable quality that can contribute to the socioeconomic advancement of my homeland. So along with my professional commitment to this project, I also have a personal passion to see this project come to successful fruition.  Dominica is a destination where the authorities have a commitment to upholding the integrity and sustainability of the Citizenship program which makes it an attractive place for win-win opportunities for the investor, the Developer and the country.

TECJ: What is the construction projection for this development?

Ian: Construction is planned to start towards the end of 2016 and once sales are going as planned, there will be an aggressive 3-year construction timeline.

TECJ: Can you share some details on the investment options

 available for this project?

Ian: We are selling interests in preferred shares within the overall project, as opposed to selling individual condos or villa units’ freehold. The property will operate it as a hotel so investors purchase the right to a share in future profits of the hotel operation.

Each interest is selling for USD $220k plus administrative, legal and government fees. Investors also get Hilton Gold status and Hilton Honors points that can be redeemed anywhere around the world for stays at Hilton properties.

TECJ: Who is the potential investor in Tranquility Beach Curio?

Ian: We are currently receiving a lot of interest from discerning individuals and families around the world who want to enjoy the benefits of travel and freedom that this Citizenship brings. Visa-free travel to over 140 countries enhances the hassle-free life experiences that our clients can enjoy. It is an attractive lifestyle product.
