The Hummingbird Meadows is a housing project initiated by the Jamaican Prime Minister to provide 406 one-bedroom homes for its citizens. Jamaica has been deficient in the housing area and this project is a huge relief for those citizens living in bad conditions. Andrew Holness, Prime Minister, started this project in Bird Hill in Clarendon.

The project, initiated by the National Housing Trust (NHT), is in its second phase. The groundbreaking ceremony was conducted by the Prime Minister as well as the other Cabinet Ministers on Friday. The goal of this project is to provide housing facilities across a land of 289 acres. Ultimately, the 100 one-bedroom and 236 two-bedroom houses are going to be constructed on this land. A part of the land is also allocated to 70 serviced plots.
