AWARDS! AWARDS! CARIBBEAN ADVERTISING FEDERATION AWARDS GOLD AND SILVER

While our best rewards are the experiences of people enjoying the places Dart Real Estate creates, we appreciate shiny awards too! Dart Real Estate recently collected a Gold and a Silver for our region in the world’s largest advertising competition, the Caribbean Advertising Federation ADDY® Awards. The Residences at Seafire’s “Where the Sun Ignites the Sea” by Martyn Lawrence Bullard won a Gold Award as well as the Judge’s Choice for Cinematography, while Camana Bay’s holiday campaign “Have the Most Wonderful Time” took home a Silver Award. We’re proud of this work created by a team led by young Caymanian filmmakers.

Camana Bay Underpass

The interior of the underpass is painted in the colours of Cayman’s flora and blue sea

CAMANA BAY UNDERPASS + ROUNDABOUT UPDATE

Who says that infrastructure can’t be both beautiful and functional? This month we painted the interior of the Camana Bay underpass in shapes abstracted from Camana Bay’s blossom icon and colours that echo Cayman’s blue waters and vibrant flora, a palette found throughout the Camana Bay Town Centre. We have also paved the new three-lane Camana Bay roundabout and are crafting the encircling stone walls as we work towards a late Spring opening for both the roundabout and the underpass.

FUTURE ENTRANCE TO NGCI PROMISES EASIER ACCESS

The National Gallery of the Cayman Islands (NGCI) will be easier to access for both pedestrians and vehicular traffic when the Esterley Tibbetts Highway is complete later this year. Sidewalks meander through the front garden of the NGCI, awarding visitors a safe path to and from the Gallery and connecting with the Camana Bay Link which will allow safe passage for pedestrians beneath the Esterley Tibbetts Highway. With the addition of the Airport Connector Road roundabout, vehicles travelling south can now conveniently access the Gallery without having to drive all the way to the Butterfield roundabout.
