Re-Opening of the Red House

In 2011 the Parliament left the Red House and moved to temporary accommodation in Tower D of the Port-of-Spain International Waterfront Centre, in order to allow for repair of the entire building for the exclusive use of the Parliament. On Friday 24th January, 2020 the Red House was re-opened by Her Excellency Paula-Mae Weekes, President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. The number of staff at the Parliament had grown so significantly during that period that a companion building, Cabildo Chambers, located to the west of the Red House at St. Vincent Street, was needed to accommodate them. The buildings were joined by an elevated walkway to allow for access between both buildings.
