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, more students attend Cayman International School thanks to its recent expansion, and more residents call this community their home when OLEA’s first phase is ready for occupancy in 2021.
We continue to explore new ways to bring everyday conveniences to those who work, live, play and learn here. Three new projects are under construction to help meet that objective.
60 NEXUS WAY
A new 10-storey commercial building neighbouring 89 Nexus Way and the Esterley Tibbetts Highway is scheduled for completion mid-2022. 60 Nexus Way is designed to achieve LEED certification and will feature 200,000 square feet of Class-A office space and ground floor retail.
Camana Bay’s first for-sale residential community, this harbourfront project is located just south of the Town Centre and across from Cayman International School. 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.
A 10-storey, 120,000-square-foot for-lease residential building offering 89 residences, ranging from studios to three-bedroom apartments, is now under construction adjacent to Foster’s. Once complete, it will offer modern long-term accommodations in response to growing demand from the professional services community.
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.
