OVER HERE, STERLING – A Freeport evacuee holds the only ticket he needs to get to Nassau, the tail number of a plane loaned by Sterling Global Financial while being rescued in Grand Bahama after having been stranded for four days on a farm post Hurricane Dorian. The plane is one of several corporate aircraft that have been deployed to assist in hurricane relief and recovery in The Bahamas where the Category 5 storm that struck on September 1 and hovered for days left a path of destruction in Grand Bahama and Abaco. The Sterling aircraft ferried supplies in and people out for nearly two weeks as the need arose and commercial aircraft were not available. In addition to its core real estate funding investment and wealth management core businesses, Sterling is one of the largest developers in the region. It is currently ahead of schedule in Phase 1 of its massive, $300 million, 5-year Hurricane Hole mixed-use project on Paradise Island. When complete, Sterling Commons along with the residential and marina components will create a high-end urban waterfront downtown on the island known around the world.
