As promised I went to take a few photos of the Harlequin H Hotel today.
The site has obviously suffered less than Merricks, presumably because it is in a more populated area. It looks as though it was secure until fairly recently, although when I went it was possible to walk straight in from the boardwalk side of the site as someone has ripped the site hoarding door off its hinges.
There are still a few items of plant and materials on site, although nothing of any great value.
Such a shame. So many people have lost money just to create an eyesore that spoils Barbados.
Editor’s Note: The exposed rebar is salt-drenched and rusted, with salt-laden water dripping down into the concrete. How long before no self-respecting structural engineer would approve further work? Has that time already arrived? Do we have an architects or engineers out there to comment?
