VIDEO: Younex Complies With DPW’s Request to Remove Cranes at Idle Condominium Project in Tamuning


Guam- The cranes at the Younex Emerald Oceanview Park Condominiums in Tamuning are finally coming down.

Work on the multi-million dollar project has been stalled since June of 2010 when loans were suspended and Younex faced some legal challenges trying to build the 280 unit planned residential community. Construction cranes have also been sitting on top of the unfinished buildings for an unknown period of time, which prompted Department of Public Works (DPW) Director Carl Dominguez to write a letter to the developer. He tells PNC he asked for the cranes to be dismantled nearly 3 weeks ago because of growing safety concerns from people in the community.

“Over the months, people would call me or mention to me that they were concerned about the cranes and the possibility of harm or damage to the surrounding area in the event of a big earthquake or typhoon, that sort of thing,” said Dominguez. “So I finally sent them a letter, like I said, about 3 weeks so now they are dismantling the cranes and I appreciate it.”

No time frame has been established on when construction will resume on the 4 condominium buildings along the Jonestown cliff line. Back in August 2012, Younex Vice President Dave Tydingco said Younex was in the midst of refinancing to continue work on the project.
