Case Study

Starting at sea level, a new maritime development springs to life

When a private Asian consortium purchased a former U.S. naval base at the Atlantic entrance to the Panama Canal Zone, it obtained the last parcel of privately-held waterfront connected to the world’s busiest shipping lane.   The challenge was to maximize the investment, and the consortium planned the first new terminal in the Canal Zone designed to handle the maximum sized Panamax ships using the route.  They engaged Jones Lang LaSalle, an experienced leader in port developments throughout the world, as a consulting partner for this ambitious project, named the Panama Canal Colon Port (PCCP).

Our project team began by valuating the property in 2007, with a supplemental reevaluation in 2008.  Armed with validation of PCCP’s worth, we are currently sourcing a best-in-class project team including architects and engineers construction contractors, financiers and, an operator for the completed terminal.  At the same time, our team is also marketing PCCP, scheduled for completion in 2014, among international ocean carriers that utilize the Panama Canal.  We are currently negotiating with one of the world’s top five terminal operators for exclusive management rights for the terminal.  On the financial side, we have helped create and underwrite a development fund and secure endorsements from Panama’s President and Ministry of Commerce for investment in PCCP.
