Meet the Visionary
Who Brought Limegrove to Life
1980 signalled the start of Paul Altman’s career in development when he joined the team for the creation of the Speightstown Mall. Speightstown is Barbados’ most northern city, and a treasured conservation area. Paul, during his tenure as President of the Barbados National Trust, had the opportunity to oversee improvement of the town, particularly significant because of its rich, historic past. This ignited a passion, which led to the creation of many signature developments associated with the Altman Real Estate brand.
Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, the latest project which Paul has completed, is influenced and inspired by Havana, Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York (Soho), Singapore and other trendy destinations. As the concept developed, Paul invited investors who believed in his vision of a lifestyle centre to become part of the project. Today, Limegrove is unrivalled in the Southern Caribbean.
Glimpses of the original influences can be enjoyed throughout the architecture and atmosphere at Limegrove. This mixed-use facility presents the world’s top retail brands, all set around courtyards where visitors spend time enjoying food, fashion, art and film. For those who want to stay longer, The Grove Residences offer stylish townhouse living to complement Barbados’ most stylish town – Holetown.
A mixture of challenges and triumphs has transformed a pasture where cattle once grazed into the Caribbean’s signature lifestyle centre. Paul stands proud of being tested as a developer whose work spans the spectrum of real estate.
“Before Limegrove, there was a void of high-end duty free shopping in Barbados. Limegrove introduced this at the highest end possible, in an environment that is socially inviting. There is a culture and an image surrounding Limegrove that makes our visitors feel special.” – Paul B. Altman
