Several new residential developments have recently got approval from the Kingston and St Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC), suggesting a construction boom across the capital city.

Allicute Construction and Equipment Limited will be constructing several two-story townhouses and studio apartments at 21 Long Lane, St Andrew.

The building application plans for the group of townhouses and studios was one of eight multi-family apartment and townhouse developments recently approved by the Building and Town Planning Committee of the KSAMC at mid-January meetings.
