The Residences at Seafire

It’s been a summer of infrastructure at Dart Real Estate. As fall approaches, several of our road projects are reaching milestones or nearing completion, making way for more efficient traffic flow and better experiences for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists. We also celebrate all the teams that created Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa and the staff members who enliven it with great service for earning the prestigious AAA Five Diamond Award.

Looking forward, we’re preparing to open The Residences at Seafire this fall and complete construction of our newest commercial building, One Nexus Way.

Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa

Seafire Attains Coveted AAA Five Diamond Rating

We are delighted to share that Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa has been awarded the AAA Five Diamond Rating, the highest possible rating from the esteemed travel authority. The AAA Five Diamond Award singles out world-class hotels that provide unparalleled luxury, sophistication and impeccable standards of excellence, from extraordinary facilities and grounds to personalised guest service. This is the first AAA Five Diamond Rating for the Kimpton brand.

The Rise at Camana Bay

New Roads, Structures and Names

The roundabout near Lakeside Apartments – designed to tie into the future airport connector road – will be known as the Camana Bay South Roundabout, serving as the “front door” to the town on the Esterley Tibbetts Highway. South of the vehicular underpass is the new three-lane Camana Bay Town Centre Roundabout. Crossing over the underpass is The Rise, a new favourite route for runners, dog walkers and visitors enjoying the sea-to-sound views. Improvements are also underway at the roundabout near Britannia and Galleria Plaza, which will be known as the Camana Bay North Roundabout. The NRA is installing signs with these new identifiers, making it easier for visitors to make their way to and around Camana Bay.

Cayman International School

Additional Access to Cayman International School

In addition to the construction of the Camana Bay South roundabout, works are progressing on the southern extension of Minerva Avenue. Providing access exclusively to Cayman International School, the extension will tie into the Camana Bay South Roundabout, saving families coming from George Town and the eastern districts a bit of time on the daily school run. The road is scheduled to open this fall and will flow into Cayman International School’s existing one-way traffic pattern.

Esterley Tibbetts Highway

More Lanes and Sea-to-Sound Connectivity Coming Soon

The future northbound carriageway of the Esterley Tibbetts Highway from the Camana Bay South Roundabout to the Camana Bay Town Centre Roundabout is nearing completion, with some traffic shifting to the northern section in a few weeks. Construction also continues to install chiller lines under the southbound lane of Emeritus Drive prior to its re-opening as an internal road through Camana Bay. On West Bay Road, the western wall of the vehicular underpass is complete and the eastern wall is in progress with piling underway.

Turtle

First Turtle Nest of Season

We’re excited to share that the first turtle nest of the season has been found along Dart Real Estate lands on Seven Mile Beach. Every day, staff from Dart companies and Kimpton Seafire, as well as guests of the resort, comb the beach for turtle tracks and nests, reporting their findings to the Department of Environment (DoE) for its longstanding and successful turtle nest monitoring programme. To learn more about how you can help, contact [email protected].
