Dart Real Estate’s philosophy is centred on place-making, capitalising on the community’s assets, inspiration and potential, with the intention of creating spaces that promote people’s health, happiness and well-being. We recognise that, as developers, we are planting the seeds for the future growth of the Cayman Islands and that we are tasked with the responsibility of raising the profile of the Cayman Islands in development and sustainability.
This philosophy informs our decisions and the development process from start to finish; from initial vision to the crafting of the design narrative to development and construction to programming and management.
Each development on which we embark – whether we’re breaking ground on a new project, forging ahead with an ongoing development or revisiting an incomplete concept – is done so with an open mind and the belief that all developments must grow organically, as economic demands change and the community’s needs fluctuate.
The outlook for Camana Bay is blossoming as more commercial businesses move into the Town Centre, Cayman International School expands, residents call this community their home and we explore new ways to bring everyday conveniences to those who work, live, play and learn here.
A new commercial building neighbouring 89 Nexus Way and the Esterley Tibbetts Highway is scheduled for completion in early 2022. 60 Nexus Way is designed to achieve LEED certification and will feature Class-A office space and ground floor retail.
Camana Bay’s first for-sale residential community, OLEA, is currently under construction just south of the Town Centre. Featuring Cayman’s first lazy river and various other community amenities, OLEA comprises an array of condominiums, townhomes and duplexes. This project is brought to the market in partnership with NCB Group.
The development team at Camana Bay is also exploring opportunities to build further residential assets to accommodate the growing demand to live in the vicinity of the Town Centre. This includes a 10-storey, 120,000-square-foot for-lease residential building with 89 units, ranging from studios to three-bedroom apartments.
FUTURE GRAND CAYMAN RESORTS
Since 2015, Dart Real Estate has been analysing luxury hotel brands that will elevate the Cayman Islands’ tourism industry and complement Dart Real Estate’s approach as a developer in the Caribbean. Preliminary master planning for this future five-star resort is under way and is planned to be built on the west coast of Grand Cayman near Camana Bay.
Community bike and walking trail
While residents and visitors of the Cayman Islands continue to enjoy the community bike and walking trail that hugs the coastline from the Seven Mile Public Beach to the northern end of Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa, work continues on the next phase of the trail.
When completed, the trail will span two miles along Seven Mile Beach, winding through eco-systems of mangroves and wetlands transitioning to woodlands of indigenous trees and along designated bike lanes on the Esterley Tibbetts Highway. The eastern end of the trail will wind its way to the Cayman Islands Yacht Club, connecting visitors to North Sound excursions with local operators, from mangrove kayaking to boat trips to Stingray City.
