Stephen, 26, said the gated community will have 24-hour security surveillance and also armed security.

 "We are trying to capture the uptown market. There will be underground wiring, brick roads and very modern and upscale buildings. The layout and ambience the finished product will be different."

Stephen said, "We are trying to have the most elaborate landscaping ever in Trinidad. We are hoping to use solar power for the complex because we are trying to make it as eco friendly as possible. There will be a gym, swimming pool even though some of the houses would have their own swimming pools and an office where persons could make complaints."

The houses will cost between $2 million to $4 million.

Stephen said construction should begin within the first three months of 2012.

Plans for the project have already been drawn he said.

He said, "Real estate is one of the real money making ventures in Trinidad. I have always wanted to do that. All the big folks in Trinidad are involved with real estate."
