Government Campus Plaza, Trinidad

Government Campus Plaza, Trinidad

The Government Campus Plaza is a government complex, currently under construction on Richmond Street and Wrightson Road in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. It fulfills the Government’s goal of ensuring that the public can quickly and conveniently access the services of five of its Government Ministries/agencies.

Currently under construction on Richmond Street and Wrightson Road in Port of Spain, the Government Campus Plaza will be one of the projects that will change the skyline of the nation’s capital.

Located just across from the POS International Waterfront Centre on Wrightson Road (a busy East-West transport artery in western Port of Spain) on a 1.154 million square foot quadrangular piazza, the Government Campus Plaza will provide not only office accommodation and parking, but also an aesthetically pleasing public plaza with manicured gardens and entertainment space. In the plaza, just below the state-of-the-art, outdoor 40 x 70 ft screen mounted on one of the plaza’s two 23-storey towers, nationals and non-nationals alike will benefit from an outdoor performance area, which will be used for showcasing cultural festivals and performances.
