Work on the second phase of the multi-million Lüderitz Waterfront development project is progressing well. According to locals, several tricky aspects of second phase of the project have already been dealt with. This included the demolishment of old and disused buildings. And, due to suspicions that some of the old buildings contained dangerous asbestos, specialist teams had to be brought in to ensure that safe procedures were followed.

The town’s Old Power Station (a National Heritage Monument), which has now been reduced to an empty shell, is currently being converted into Africa’s largest Maritime Museum, as well as housing a brand new UNAM Campus, restaurant, cafés plus a host of indoor and outdoor sport activities. There will also be huge outdoor terraces to allow students and visitors alike to enjoy the fantastic scenery and sunsets

It has been reported that so far a good selection of maritime artifacts and marine life materials have been collected, which will be displayed in the museum.

According to Bruno de Comarmond, Marketing Manager of the Lüderitz Nest Hotel, the removal of all the dilapidated buildings near the new Maritime Museum complex makes a huge and welcome improvement to the immediate vicinity.

“On Trip Advisor, we received some negative feedback about those old buildings and they were indeed a distraction to the initial wow factor for our hotel’s unique setting directly on Lüderitz Bay – just as you rounded the corner”. De Comarmond said that Phase 2. of the multi-million N$ Lüderitz Waterfront Project is “progressing well and … tangible results can be seen and when completed in 2015, will be a fantastic new tourist attraction and facility for Lüderitz and Namibia”.
