In order to foster a relationship with Local Government the new owners of Matt Lowe’s Cay held a meeting with the Marsh Harbour/Spring City Town Committee at the former residence of Leonard Thompson.

The Matt Lowe’s Cay Development Company represented by Meghan Bobertz and Jeff Campbell, said that they wanted to meet with the Committee to seek in essence approval in principal for a zoning change as they were purchasing the residence of Leonard Thompson to use as a way-point – a transportation center – for guests of Matt Lowe’s Cay.

Presently there are no specific zoning ordinances, outside of sub-division covenants, in Marsh Harbour, however, the developer wanted to do due diligence and has spoken with the neighbor to ensure there were no problems.

Ms. Bobertz said that they want to be a good steward of the property and that the residence would be “very quiet; very discrete”. The quantity of anticipated visitors is expected to be minimal.

“we are not looking to build a large anything on Matt Lowe’s Cay. We want to be very minimally impactful to the island; we want it to be really discreet

It’s very very early in the process so we don’t have any detailed plans [of the development].”

It was also noted that future staff and workers on the island would be transported from a different location to Matt Lowe’s Cay limiting the property to only the transit of guests.

The small island half a mile off the northeastern tip of Marsh Harbour has been sold to luxury boutique resort and residences developer SHVO. Led by founder and CEO Michael Shvo, SHVO develops unique luxury residential, hospitality and mixed-use projects around the world.

North Abaco Minister of parliament Renardo Curry said that he hopes to see Abaconians benefit from the jobs the new development can provide.

Mr. Curry said he is hopeful that local contractors would be able to benefit and noted that some have already begun to engage the new owners.
