Camana Bay held its fourth Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours gathering on Thursday, 27 September at the Crescent in the town centre off Esterley Tibbetts Highway in Grand Cayman.
The evening was an opportunity for people in the business arena to socialise and network, as well as to celebrate some of the many accomplishments and milestones Camana Bay has enjoyed.
“Roughly 1,000 people live and work here everyday and with over 300,000 square feet of office space, our motto of work, shop and play is truly being expressed,” said Ken Hydes of Camana Bay, who added that the town centre’s activities and offerings make it a “popular and unique option”.
He said the new Solaris Avenue was opened recently and explained that this development enlisted the services of some 30 Caymanian companies. Mr. Hydes noted that the terrace apartments at Camana Bay were fully leased and that the next phase of planning for residential development was under way.
In addition to his remarks relating to Camana Bay, Mr. Hydes also endorsed public and private sector initiatives as a practical means of progression for Cayman’s economy; lauding the ForCayman Alliance as an exemplary application of this ethos.
“The land fill is still a concern. However, the Courtyard redevelopment, the extension of the beach and realignment of the West Bay Road are underway and these projects are revitalising the economy,” Mr. Hydes said.
He also revealed that the Business Expo would now be called CayShop starting this year.
With offerings at Camana Bay ranging from Island Companies, to Hollywood Theatres, fashion retailers and the recent addition of stores like Celebrations, and an upcoming Apple store, the town centre utility continues to grow for the Cayman Islands community.
Many more events are scheduled to take place at Camana Bay in the coming weeks, with one of the marque events on the Christmas calendar, the Christmas tree lighting, slated for 23 November.
