She said they have no indication that the new owner will allow them use of the space and are looking around for somewhere suitable to rent.
“We have written to the Ministery of Public Administration seeking State accommodation if possible. However, the TTW receives a subvention and is willing to rent once suitable accommodation is available. So we are keeping in touch to see which works out first in the event that they do not have to move,” she said.
In a Facebook post by Guillen Realty at 4pm on Friday, February 3, the building at 23 Jerningham Avenue was listed for sale for $2.3 million.
The TTW was founded in 1959 by West Indian poet and Nobel laureate Derek Walcott and his twin brother Roderick Walcott, along with Beryl McBurnie, Errol Jones, Fred Hope and Eunice Alleyne.
The Workshop settled in various locations over the course of almost five decades, eventually settling in its most recent and most notable home in Belmont.
