“Team Oracle is due to be housed in the Dockyard area which is presently under construction and not move in ready. As a short term measure, the BHC and the Bermudiana Beach resort will reserve a single block of units for the temporary assistance of the advance team for the Oracle Group,” stated Major Barrett Dill of the BHC.
Team Oracle is expected to reside at Grand Atlantic starting in April for approximately three months and then transfer to their Dockyard location once their units are completed.
While this may slow the anticipated building process at the South Shore site, the BHC and the Bermudiana Beach resort feel the America’s Cup is very important to the future economic prosperity of Bermuda and wish to play their part in the success of the venture.
The sectioned off area will be at the Eastern end of the property while construction work will begin from the western side of the site once final negotiations have concluded.
