Metrospaces Announces the Execution of LOI to Acquire a Lot in the Orinoco Oil Belt for Business Hotel

MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/07/14 -- Metrospaces, Inc. (OTCQB: MSPC) Today announces that, it has executed the acquisition of a one-third interest in a 20,000 m2 lot to build a 120-room hotel in the Venezuelan Orinoco Oil Basin.

Mr. Brito, stated, "We are very pleased to have executed this acquisition. It marks the beginning of our heighted focus on the hotel and hospitality industry. We think there is an unparalleled opportunity for hotels in the Orinoco Oil Belt, and this is our first step in that direction. This is a play on the biggest investment in oil and gas development in the world for the coming 15 years. We will be one of the first hotel entrepreneurs to be present in the development of the Orinoco Oil Belt Basis. Venezuela has recently had this area certified as the biggest oil reserves in the world, according to the state oil company, PDVSA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orinoco_Belt). According to forecast, once finished this hotel will carry an average occupancy rate of over 90%, which is extraordinary for a business hotel in Latin America. Additionally, we expect to be able to charge very high room rates, even though this will be a 3-star hotel. Our forecast is for this operation to generate approximately $3 million in EBITDA. Additionally, this hotel can be a foothold in the area and the first to come since PDVSA's forecast calls for a development of at least 50 hotels in the area to satisfy forecasted demand. This project gives us the opportunity to be pioneers in the hotel industry in the Orinoco Oil Belt. It's an exciting opportunity for us." Additionally, Mr. Brito added: "We have been committed to this project since we executed the LOI, therefore have been working with architects and engineers to get planning approval, so we will hit the ground running on this one. The project will be financing with a 20% equity participation, and 80% will be provided by a local commercial bank. These construction loans for hotels are currently readily available in the market, and we expect a lot of interest from banks due to the strategic importance of the area."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
