World Class Workspace for Global Financial Leaders
The Cayman Islands’ competitive- ness as a leading world financial centre has both attracted and developed a talent pool of profession- als characterized by their expertise, motivation and consistency in delivering extraordinary service to global clients.
Overall quality of life for this calibre of workforce along with business infrastructure and first- rate commercial property rank among the top 10 factors driving the competitiveness of global financial centres, according to the Global Financial Centres Index which measures 60 indices tabu- lated with surveys from nearly 27,000 industry professionals.
Camana Bay has proven how these attributes can motivate world-class firms to choose it as a business location, resulting in the town’s establishment as a hub for Cayman’s financial services community.
The 600-acre town spans sea to sea from Seven Mile Beach to the North Sound. Thoughtfully designed residen- tial, commercial, educational and sports facilities are enlivened by botanic parks, courtyards and welcoming public spaces with more than 30% of the Town Centre designated as public space. Traditional Caribbean-inspired architecture, modern and flexible interiors and state-of-the-art technology define the Town’s commer- cial spaces, providing both the aesthet- ics and infrastructure that Cayman’s leading companies demand for their employees, clients and businesses.
Camana Bay delivers the dynamic work-life balance which has proven crit- ical to employee satisfaction. Companies in Camana Bay offer their employees a rich array of amenities and essential serv- ices, from shopping, restaurants and the cinema, to fitness, live entertainment, medical and postal services, all of which are easily accessible via pedestrian friendly streets and sidewalks. The intrin- sic benefits of the location provide firms with a competitive edge in recruitment as well as effective tools in supporting talent management and retention.
With Camana Bay offering the island’s largest concentration of “Class A” office space, more than 300,000 square feet that is nearly fully leased, Dart Realty
(Cayman) Ltd. is developing another 85,000-square-foot office and retail- building, 18 Forum Lane. Scheduled for completion in early 2015, this newest commercial space will embody all the practical benefits of Camana Bay that help leading financial firms better align their workspaces with their business goals. From sophisticated networking and telecommunications infrastructure to flexible spaces scalable to any size or type of business to assured business con- tinuity, Camana Bay helps its tenants to drive organisational efficiency and effec- tiveness. 18 Forum Lane is designed to achieve LEED Certification, advancing Camana Bay’s focus on sustainability and energy efficient operations.
While Camana Bay’s relationship with the Cayman Islands’ financial serv- ices sector is well established, the Town remains in its early stages with an esti- mated economic impact of more than US $2 billion over the next decade of devel- opment. Camana Bay is poised to grow alongside the industry, entrenching the Cayman Islands’ long-term position as a leading global financial centre.
