None of the 50 lots made available through a Whistle Bend land lottery yesterday were sold, according to a spokesperson for the Department of Highways and Public Works.

The first batch was for 28 single-family homes, while the second was for 11 duplexes spread over 22 lots.

The lots were mostly grouped near the intersection of Casca Boulevard and Keno Way.

Johanna Smith, a manager with the territory’s land management branch, said the upshot is there’s a healthy amount of inventory right now for prospective buyers.

The lots will be added to the department’s inventory for sale over the counter on Monday morning, she added.

Tender bids were also available today for a commercial lot, located near the corner of Casca Boulevard and Whistle Bend Way, as well as six multi-family lots.

Upon completion, Whistle Bend is expected to house approximately 8,000 residents
