One Marina overlooks the Palm Cay marina and 84 two- and three-bedroom condominiums and penthouse complex with modern interior designs and high-end finishes.

Designed by architect Winston Jones, the project is planned to be completed by 2020.

The ceremony, which also featured a tour, was attended by, among others, Diane Holowesko-Dunkley, chair of the Town Planning Committee; Tyrone Sawyer, senior director at the Ministry of Tourism; students and administrators of St Andrew’s School.

Bob Batchelor, chief executive officer at Palm Cay, dubbed One Marina the “most ambitious” project to date.

Palm Cay’s offerings include 24 hour security, a fitness centre, half-size Olympic swimming pool, boat tours, bike trail, children’s park, dockside café and beach bar and grill.

“Not only are we here to make money for my shareholders, but we want to forge a really good partnership with the community. We are investing back in the community and our own resort.”

“We want to continue the partnership. [We have] lots of ideas to demonstrate that it’s not just about profit but it’s also about giving something back.”

Minister Bannister congratulated the developers and wished them the “very best” in their project.
