The Esplanade car park will permanently close next month, as construction of a third International Finance Centre featuring a restaurant gets underway.
The five-storey, 68,000sqft building, which will be known as IFC6, will be tucked behind IFC5.
Trenton Square will also be extended as part of the build process, which is expected to take around two years.
CEO Lee Henry said the public-backed States of Jersey Development Company (SOJDC) was in the “final stages of detailed negotiations” with the firm that will act as “anchor tenant.”
In preparation for enabling works to begin, the short-stay car park at The Esplanade will close permanently from Tuesday 5 October.

SOJDC explained that it created a 520-space car park at Les Jardins in 2015 in advance as an eventual replacement for the Esplanade car park. The Esplanade remained open while further spaces were added to Sand Street.
Infrastructure Minister Deputy Kevin Lewis commented: “We know the nearby Sand Street carpark has spare capacity to accommodate regular users, and on Level Four of the carpark we will be putting in additional disabled parking, along with nine extra parent/child bays. We’ll also put extra disabled parking spaces at Les Jardins carpark, with additional motorcycle parking created on the Esplanade.”
