Government is gearing to sell the Main Street building owned by the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) located next to Palm Court. That property formerly housed the GRA’s ‘Customs House’
This was confirmed by Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr. Roger Luncheon who said too that there was no intention of putting it to use for any government purpose.
“Real estate,” he called and said that “it is not intended to house public offices.”
At the same time, Dr. Luncheon announced that Cabinet had granted a ‘no objection’ for a $19.1M contract for the rehabilitation of the GRA property on East and Lamaha Streets.
The rehabilitation of the now unoccupied GRA building will lead to the transfer of the Ministry of Human Services and Social Security. Dr. Luncheon said that this will be done in a phased manner.
He said that the intention is to have a phased evacuation of the Ministry of Labour and Human Services and Social Security from the Cornhill street location.
Dr. Luncheon did say that Government will not abandon that location.
While Dr. Luncheon did not elaborate, he said that Government has a grand design for the Cornhill Street property.
He explained that work is also being done on a Brickdam location to relocate the Ministry of Labour, while those at the Ministry of Human Services will move to the East and Lamaha Street location.
