Camana Bay secures tenant for third office building

| 13/10/2010

(CNS): Local law firm Mourant Ozannes has revealed that it has agreed to become the anchor tenant of a new 62,000 square foot commercial building located in the Town Centre of Camana Bay which is expected to be finished in 2012. The lawyers will occupy the top two floors of the third commercial building that Dart will build in the new town. Neal Lomax, Managing Partner of Mourant Ozannes in the Cayman Islands said the firm was growing and it needed new larger premises to accommodate that future growth.

He said the practice also wanted an office building and location which reflected the quality of the firm. “We are very confident that this new building in Camana Bay will satisfy these criteria. By committing to this project, we demonstrate our confidence in the future of the Cayman Islands as one of the world’s leading international financial centres,” he added.
The latest addition to the Camana Bay skyline was designed by Torti Gallas and Partners and was supported by local architects, the Burns Conolly Group, Dart said. The developers said the design of the Mourant Ozannes building is consistent with the architectural principles already in use at Camana Bay.
“We are delighted to welcome Mourant Ozannes to Camana Bay,” said Jackie Doak, Chief Operating Officer for Dart Realty (Cayman) Ltd. “This latest development shows that despite the economic downturn, confidence in Camana Bay as a preferred address for commercial and retail businesses remains high. As Camana Bay continues to grow, our focus is firmly on attracting the "best of the best" and Mourant Ozannes with their growing list of accolades is the perfect anchor tenant for our new building.” 
With sustainability being a key influence in all aspects of Camana Bay, Dart Realty said it will pursue LEED certification for the new building. LEED provides a framework for design and construction and third-party verification that a building is designed and built using strategies aimed at improving energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction and indoor environment quality.
The new building will also feature a hurricane resistant building envelope designed and constructed to the most stringent of Cayman and Miami-Dade hurricane resistant standards, start-of-the-art technology, ample parking adjacent to the building within The Town Centre and solar shading solutions to both decorate the building and keep it cool. In keeping with Camana Bay’s mixed use philosophy, retail outlets and restaurants will be located at ground level with four stories of commercial office above.
