The New Providence Development Company Limited was founded in 1962, not too long after the inception of Lyford Cay in the mid-1950s, and is the largest privately owned land development company on New Providence Island (Nassau). The company's core operations center on land development, water production, and property management. One of its most prominent projects is Old Fort Bay.
A private, gated residential community on New Providence Island, Old Fort Bay embraces dramatic beach frontage, a members' club converted from the Old Fort building dating from the 1700s, and more than 170 prime waterfront home sites. The company also supplies much of the water needs for the western end of New Providence Island.
In 2011 the Tavistock Group has announced that H Hunter “Terry” White III and his family have acquired Lynum Investment Group Ltd’s shares in the New Providence Development Co Ltd (NPDCo).
Since 1998, the diversified Bahamian land development company has been jointly owned and operated by the White family and Lynum Investment Group, an affiliate of Tavistock Group, which is a private investment company.
Lynum Investment Group held 50 per cent of NPDCo’s outstanding shares.
With extensive landholdings on the island of New Providence, NPDCo is the developer of the prestigious Old Fort Bay gated community and its Old Fort Bay Club. The company is currently developing the 21.5-acre Old Fort Bay Town Centre, a $30-million mixed-use retail and commercial center.
In addition to land development and related operations, NPDCo operates a potable water utility business, which services more than 1,000 homes in the area.
Formed in 1962 by Canadian entrepreneur E P Taylor, NPDCo went public on the Toronto Stock Exchange in 1968. Thirty years later, the majority of the company’s shares were acquired by White and Lynum Investment Group.
“Both White and Tavistock are committed to The Bahamas, and we are confident NPDCo will continue to enhance the western end of New Providence under White’s leadership,” said Jefferson Voss, a managing director of Tavistock Group.
