Guam - The Guam Land Use Commission approved the tentative development plan for a proposed zip facility at the Guam Hilton Hotel. GLUC chairman Jay Lather says the commission approved Zip Guam, Inc.'s plan after learning the project would not only be a good tourist attraction but was a low-impact project that did not raise any land issues or negatively affect residents.
The Commission also approved Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction Group's requests for a zone change but with an amendment for its proposed low-density residential subdivision. Lather says the Commission only approved the lower part of the lot in Piti to a Multi-Family Dwelling whereas a higher level of the property would remain an agricultural zone.
The Aommission meanwhile tabled R&D Investment, Inc.'s tentative development plan for a proposed four-story, 12-unit condominium project after its representative Taniguchi Ruth Makio Architects withdrew its height variance request and presented new information.
