The project will not only revive the existing structures, but also includes the construction of a new building, the House of Culture, that will enhance the historical and cultural value of the area. The project provides a plaza area, which can be used for entertainment and official purposes; a walkway that will allow visitors to explore and admire the beauty of the remarkable site; and visitors will have waterfront access and a gateway to a future City Seaside Boardwalk. The rejuvenation will convert the Government House into a museum, where guests can explore and appreciate the preserved colonial home. Other features included are accessible parking and restroom areas for visitors.
