Ministry of Tourism agrees on replacement for historic Paslow Building

Posted: Monday, June 3, 2019. 10:49 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: As part of the House of Culture and Downtown Rejuvenation Project, a new Tourist Welcome Center will be built on the site formerly known as the Paslow Building, at the corner of Queen and North Front Streets in Belize City.

The historic building was destroyed by fire in 2002 and has mostly been used for parking and vending since.

The contract was signed by Eric Martinez and Son Construction for a ferroconcrete two-story structure with vending booths, offices and a cafe and parking in the rear. Construction begins later this month and goes to the end of the year.

The project is investing in renovations of five historic buildings in the downtown area including the House of Culture. No dollar amount was given for the project.

Funding is being provided by the government, the Taiwanese ICDF and the project itself.
