Port City Oranjestad

Aruba Ports Authority (APA) has the pleasure to welcome you to the Port City Oranjestad project. APA will transform the former cargo terminal area near the cruise terminal Oranjestad into a new and reformed leisure, residential and working area. This area is to act as a magnet for residents and tourists alike, with a Waterfront Park and phased development of mixed use commercial real estate. APA is proud to embark on this new expedition and setting the ground work for unique sustainable new project with multiple uses and social economic growth for Aruba and investors.

APA exploits and manages the land of the former cargo port area in Oranjestad and is the area developer of this project ‘Port City Oranjestad’. APA has developed a provisional Urban Development Plan for the designated area, which was approved by the Aruban government in February 2019. APA will be responsible for the realization of the public space and issuing the building plots. For each individual lot, market participants are offered flexibility in realizing a wide variety of buildings and semi-public space.

In the early stages of the planning process, APA collected market information by means of market research and dialogues with various stakeholders and developers. This way APA gained insights into the demands and commercial considerations of the market.

These insights formed the foundation for the assumptions in the financial model of the development and exploitation of ‘Port City Oranjestad. in 2020 APA by means of a market consultation collected updated information from various market participants in a more formal, yet non-committal manner. This market consultation offered the interested market participants the opportunity to respond in broad terms to the entire plan, but the emphasis and depth of the market consultation was sought in the most western part, where the first lots OA and OB are to be issued to a private developer.

The overall master plan is the result of a close collaboration between APA and Port of Amsterdam International as well as OZ Architect in an advisory capacity.

Currently APA is preparing a formal pre-registration in anticipation of the tender process of parcels OA and OB.

Expected date of pre-registration Q2/23. Please be aware that APA will do its ultimate to attain its planning but is dependent of governmental administrative decision making process for the actual start.
