ONE CANAL POINT, Cayman Islands
ONE Canal Point makes the most of its enviable location with water views from every residence, a 900' boardwalk dock and a short walk to Seven Mile Beach.
Words by Natasha Were.
A brand new residential development, due to break ground in summer 2019, ONE Canal Point will be a secure gated community of 74 high spec contemporary condominiums and townhomes in one of the most sought after neighbourhoods in the Seven Mile Beach corridor, Canal Point. Occupying a 5-acre parcel of land located 400 meters east of Seven Mile Beach, ONE is set to become one of the most desirable addresses in Cayman: a luxury residential community that benefits from extensive canal frontage, an abundance of green space, low density housing and resort-style amenities.
Designed by internationally acclaimed architecture firm Gensler, ONE Canal Point has been meticulously planned to ensure each home enjoys views of the water and benefits from the cooling trade winds, whilst ensuring hurricane-rated and energy efficient construction.
The condos are distributed across five buildings, arranged around a spectacular resort style pool. One and two bedroom layouts, some with a den, all feature spacious floorplans, balconies and water views. Penthouse units feature private roof terraces and ONE Canal Point will have an expansive communal roof terrace for condo residents.
The 17 townhomes, which are positioned right on the water, are ideal for families, with three bedrooms plus a den, an optional plunge pool and a top floor terrace. The three-storey configuration includes five bathrooms and a flexible entertainment space on the top floor. The four-storey configuration features parking space and a terrace on the ground floor, open plan living space and one bedroom on the first floor, two further bedroom suites on the second floor, and a spacious roof terrace.
The modern architecture is sleek and bright, with generous proportions and wall-to-wall glass across the canal-facing side. The interiors, designed by Lydia Uzzell Interior Design, continue the fresh, uncluttered theme, softening it with natural materials and a muted colour palette.
“We felt it was important to create a location specific interior that honoured the contemporary architecture, but that felt inviting and warm at the same time. To achieve this we
focused on specifying hard wearing finishes that offered an implied beachy vibe, while adding modern and clean detailing,” explains the interior designer.
Top quality materials and features will include Kohler kitchen and bathroom hardware, high end European wall and floor finishes, energy efficient appliances and air-conditioning, sleek kitchen cabinetry with recessed handles, LED lighting and pre-wiring for audio visual and home automation. Optional furniture packages will also be available.
Conceived to offer an all-round luxury living experience, residents will have access to a 25-metre lap pool, with an adjoining lounging area and kids pool with beach style entry, a hot tub and barbecue area, as well as a second more secluded adults-only pool, tucked away between the gym and clubhouse.
The developers foresee ONE Canal Point being a family-friendly community as shared amenities include a children’s playground, dog park and fruit orchard.
“It is the location of ONE Canal Point that puts this development ahead of the competition,” says Michael Treacy of Design Developments. “Not only is the parcel large enough to ensure plenty of lush grounds, but it’s in one of the most prestigious neighbourhoods in Cayman, with extensive canal frontage and a wonderful easterly aspect that catches the breeze. There is nothing else on the Seven Mile Beach corridor that offers the same level of luxury at this price point.”
