City-within-city plan to boost North business

CONSTRUCTION works for the newly-planned Damodar City complex in Labasa may begin in August next year if things go according to plan.

This was revealed during a stakeholders consultation with government departments in the North yesterday.

Damodar Group CEO Div Damodar described the meeting as fruitful, adding it discussed how best to make the project work.

The architect of the complex, Jait Narsey, told the forum the new complex would be like a city within a city.

"We are trying to create something that will entice people to come to Labasa and stay," he said.

"The plan of the city in the first draft that was revealed contains supermarket, retail shops and office spaces, shopping malls, bus stand and a market.

"Compared to the complex we have in Suva which is an extrovert complex, the one we have planned for the North is an introvert one where the amphitheatre is located in the middle of the complex."

The group's business consultant, Karl Mar, said the sitting yesterday was for consultation purposes with government departments since the concept was strange to Labasa.
