With downtown Kingston becoming more attractive to corporate Jamaica, one entity that has never been shy to travel to that part of Jamaica returned there recently.

The grand final of Heineken Inspire, the competition geared at developing Jamaican talent, was recently staged at the old train station on Pechon Street.

With the train station transformed into party central, Heineken gave Jamaica a glimpse of what can be done in the commercial district that is being transformed.

With winners being announced for the categories music, fashion, art and film, the music train was a hit while some patrons danced up a storm on the wooden deck placed over the rails.
