Hundreds of glass jars and empty wine and beer bottles are disposed at Camana Bay’s recycling centre, where they journey through a second life. The bottles are crushed at Dart’s Glass Crushing Facility and sold to entities such as Flowers Block, which mixes the crushed glass material with aggregate to produce concrete pavers like those found on the Community Bike & Walk Trail at Kimpton Seafire.

One trend is clear: energy efficiency is a high priority for homeowners. Home automation, the internet of things, and artificial intelligence are leading the way, responding to our desire of spending more time doing things rather than managing things. The future is all about what our daily objects can do for us. Here’s a peek into four advances that are set to become staples in our future homes and cities.
Development from a Dart perspective is like an orchestra of musicians and instruments working together to create a symphony of buildings and places whose whole is greater than the sum of their individual parts. Every orchestra needs a conductor and at Dart Development, that person is Justin Howe, Senior Vice President Development & Engineering. On any given day, Howe is coordinating dozens of people who are part of multiple teams working on multiple projects on Grand Cayman.
In the commercial real estate world, The Observation Tower at Camana Bay would be considered an anomaly. Occupying a prime location on a busy shopping street, it has never been available for rent. But for Dart Real Estate, design is as important as function and The Observation Tower is no exception. As the focal point of Camana Bay’s Town Centre, The Observation Tower is lit up like a lantern after dark with a welcoming glow that spreads its warmth to the streets below.
Many of the infrastructure projects in and around Camana Bay scheduled for completion during the coming months represent firsts for the Cayman Islands. All of these projects use construction methods employed regularly in other parts of the world, but for the Cayman Islands, they are groundbreaking. The new infrastructure elements involve high-tech engineering the public might not be aware of because they can’t see it.
Every detail matters to Dart Real Estate. The best artisans and craftsmen locally and around the world came together over 10 years ago to design and later build the town of Camana Bay. Today, thousands of residents and visitors visit each year and share in the culture and heritage of the Cayman Islands through little details woven throughout the architecture and ambience that makes Camana Bay so special.
Today The Tory Burch Foundation launched its “Embrace Ambition” campaign. The campaign encourages women everywhere to “fearlessly pursue your dreams and embrace your ambitions”. To say that the video and campaign inspired me would be an understatement. Today I can unequivocally say that I embraced my ambition, my passion and my desire to inspire the people who surround me to live their best lives, dream big and make a difference in all that we do each and every day.
