The World Trade Centre Georgetown (WTCG), the first of its kind in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), is inviting expressions of interest (EOI) from private businesses, diplomatic missions, international agencies, and non-profit organizations for the leasing of approximately 5,000 square feet of office space on floors 4, 5, and 6 in its modern 7-floor building.
In its EOI, it noted that the state-of-the-art facility, located at 44 High Street, Kingston, Georgetown, is currently undergoing retrofitting to include high-level amenities, and the available space will be open for rent from January 1, 2024.
Further, the WTC Georgetown highlighted that the building is strategically positioned in the heart of the administrative and institutional zone of historic Georgetown which offers easy access to major hotels, and important government and diplomatic buildings including the Canadian and British High Commissions, U.S. and Cuban Embassies, the Ministry of Finance, the Civil Aviation Authority, and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). It emphasised that the location is a mere five-minute walk from these key institutions, which provides convenience and accessibility for potential tenants.
As for its facilities and amenities, the WTC Georgetown noted it offers flexible, modern office space designed to inspire and meet the diverse objectives of its tenants. The available facilities include access to commercial conference facilities equipped with simultaneous translation capabilities, an auditorium, state-of-the-art information and communication technology, a cafeteria, and a rooftop heritage center.
According to WTC Georgetown which is operated by Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL), the renewable lease agreements will have an initial period of five years. Interested parties are requested to submit their EOI no later than September 30, 2023, at 4:00 p.m.
It was also keen to note that as a licensed member of the World Trade Centers Association (WTCA), WTC Georgetown represents a treasured mark that strengthens a company’s global presence and brand recognition when used consistently and in approved forms. It said its core objective is to stimulate and strengthen trade relations between Guyana and the rest of the world. To achieve this, it will identify, analyze, and foster multi-sector business opportunities to promote foreign trade and investment.
