Emerging and Sustainable Cities Initiative, East Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago

Three communities in Port-of-Spain are to benefit from an estimated $1.2 billion development project called the Emerging and Sustainable Cities Initiative (ESCI) between the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the Government of Trinidad & Tobago. The area selected includes the six Comprehensive Development Areas in East Port-of-Spain previously studied by Dover-Kohl.

Key demonstration projects have been selected, and will highlight special area plans developed during the charrette. The Restoration of Fort Picton; the Tamarind Tree Park in East Quarry; the Uptown Plaza, Brian Lara Promenade Extension, and Port of Spain Central market renovation in Downtown Port of Spain; the Park and Ride Facility in Beetham; the Laventille Road Historic District; and the East Dry River Linear Park are all special area plans designed by the Dover-Kohl team.
