The Hall family, who are connected to both church and kennel operations in Vineyard Town, have set their sights on a new project involving the delivery of living space to professionals in one of Kingston's oldest communities.

The Halls are investing $650 million in the development of Deanery Road Apartments on a

1.83-acre property at 50A Deanery Road. It will comprise a mix of 80 studio and two-bedroom units, and complemented by 103 parking spaces, according to Hugh Scott of Asco Project Consultants Limited, the engineers and project manager for the project.




Scott said the units are targeted mid-income earners, who can access NHT benefits to finance their purchase. The expected selling price for the units was not disclosed.

Designed by architectural firm Rivi Gardner & Associates Limited, the apartments will span two blocks, each of which will rise five-storeys high. The development will be gated.

Scott said construction should begin by the second quarter of 2018. The Halls are using a Special Purpose Vehicle for the project, the name of which was also not disclosed, and will finance the development with bank loans and financing sources, Asco Project Consultants said.
