Town plans foreshore lift
Lami Town, on the other side of Suva Harbour, when one travels towards Nadi from Suva, is ready for a major facelift in a planned reclamation of 19 hectares of its foreshore to boost investment. The foreshore reclamation will be carried out in the area alongside the central business district area facing Suva Harbour. Shopping malls, a park reserve, mariner roads, waterways and buildings for light commercial use are part of the project. A hotel with a convention centre is one of the highlights. There will also be provision for anchoring yachts and small boats. The project will be funded by private investment.
