Guam - Last week KUAM News reported about the development of a mall project proposed in the village of Yigo. Piti mayor Ben Gumataotao says he welcomes an industrial park in his village. He says the proposed 320,000-square foot facility will sit in the 20 acres of private property that is owned by the Leon Guerrero family.
LG Brothers, Inc., Capital Projects Consulting along with a Hong Kong-based architecture and design group called "AND" is working to have the property rezoned for industrial use by the Guam Legislature. Mayor Gumataotao says the new park is good for the island's growth, saying, "With this military buildup we need this; right now Harmon's completely filled up, no more spaces and why I accept it because its closer, it's cheaper to deliver the containers or whatever goods they are going to bring into Guam."
Gumataotao adds that the rezoning may determine the completion date for the state-of-the-art facility.
