Pacifique Du Sud Managing Director Rajendra Nath said that with 79 percent of the Lautoka Hub being already complete, the opening of the complex was being earmarked for the end of April.

Mr. Nath said works for the $12 million property at Waiyavi started May last year with structural works finished.

“100 percent everything is going according to plan, I had good people working with me like the architects, builders, and the subcontractors and the Lautoka City Council.

“Structurally it’s done but once that is finished then we have to start on the landscaping because the whole area will be sealed and we will be planting a rain tree in between and then other flower gardens, car wash, satellite market stalls as well as a fish and chip shop,” he said.

He said the last stage of the project was the 60-meter extension of the hub behind the main building if granted approval from the Lautoka City Council, a water slide area for children as well.

He said he hoped the hub would be a one-stop-shop for the Waiyavi, Lautoka community to help members of the public to no longer deal with issues like parking or traffic congestion.

“Stall fees will be at a minimum and we will be giving four acres for parking while the rest is for the development,” he said

“Tenants are coming and most of the spaces are taken since and we are still negotiating for the supermarket but in total there are 40 units.

There will be benches with charging pods, restaurants, office spaces, retail shops, bread shops, and a hardware shop.”

Mr Nath added once the hub is completed next year, community members will be invited for the grand opening.

“Whenever we do community developments we cannot hide them away from people, so I would imagine that would be appropriate to invite them and we are doing a lot of things for the community like places that they can relax,” he said.
