Yacht Haven 360 Building to Transform to a Premier USVI Attraction
IGY Marinas has announced that the landmark 360 building at Yacht Haven Grande has been leased to a private group including Kiran Akal, former creative consultant for Walt Disney and Warner Music writer and artist, as well as Dave Goodman, former vice president of Walt Disney Company, and Anheuser Busch Theme Park executive.
The group plans to transform the 360 building into a premier facility that is unique along the Caribbean cruise line route. The themed attraction will include elements from the rich history and culture of the US Virgin Islands, as well as some of the sought after natural resources of the area.
The project also has the support of the U.S.V.I. Department of Tourism, the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association and IGY Marinas, founded by Andrew Farkas. The new attraction will not only contribute to the local economy, but will provide jobs in the hospitality, retail and technical sectors, and further diversify the area’s tourism offering.
The group looks forward to collaborating with essential government agencies as they make this project a highly visible symbol in the future of the region, supporting IGY’s fourteen-year commitment to economic development of the USVI.
