Camana Bay’s newest building and the first 10-storey commercial building in the Cayman Islands has officially opened its doors. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on 20 April signaling the opening of 60 Nexus Way. 60 Nexus Way integrates high-performance design with sustainable building practices. It was designed in collaboration with Dart’s in-house design team and Texas-based Lake|Flato, mixing urban and tropical design features, supported by modern infrastructure and green technologies.
“At 10 storeys, we’re building up rather than out. This is an example of our drive for sustainability. Increased density reduces sprawl and delivers greater efficiency, conserving resources,” said Dart Vice President Commercial, Chris Lennon. He further noted that Dart’s commitment to sustainable economic growth is reflected in our real estate developments, where excellence is pursued to deliver properties that meet the highest standards in design, engineering and quality.
“Sustainability is at the forefront of our design, cost, and construction decisions. These include decisions around targeted water savings, energy efficiency, use of sustainable building materials, waste reduction and enhancing the quality of the indoor environment for our customers,” Lennon added.
Dart Senior Manager – Project Management Edward Fitzgerald echoed that sentiment. “Developments like this that have attracted acclaim of the International Property Awards and attained sustainability accreditation help position the Cayman Islands as a place where world-class, sustainable infrastructure is the norm rather than the exception. This is something we are committed to continuing,” he said.
“Several members of the Cayman Islands Government attended the ribbon cutting ceremony along with the Director of InvestCayman, Jane Scaletta. She noted “60 Nexus Way, the first 10-story commercial building, is a continued symbol of progress and development in the Cayman Islands. The construction of a commercial building of this size indicates economic development and growth within the Cayman Islands. It signifies an increase in investment and business activity, which can lead to job creation, increased duty revenues, and overall economic stimulation.”
