Booming Palm Cay Creates Nearly 100 Local Jobs
With construction booming and interest continuing to build, the sprawling beachfront and marina community of Palm Cay is benefiting nearly 100 people who are working either directly for the development or for contractors and subcontractors on the job.
Having already quadrupled its full time local team in sales, operations and marina services in less than a year, the waterfront, family-oriented community along New Providence’s southeastern shore is also creating opportunities for more than 80 construction workers.
From unskilled labour to skilled carpenters, plumbers and electricians, they are working on a 5-year project that includes beachfront and ocean view townhomes, a 5-phase condominium project and numerous individual homes on single family residential lots.
They are also putting the finishing touches on a beachfront restaurant to be called The Billfish Grill which is expected to open by month’s end and Chives Dockside, a casual eatery, that will open a short while later. They have already completed tennis courts, a clubhouse and numerous other amenities, including two swimming pools and extensive walkways, infrastructure, lighting, electrical and other works.
“We are a hive of activity right now. Interest continues to grow, and construction with it,” said Sales & Marketing Director Zack Bonczek.
“After the success of our first townhomes and single family lots, we actually had to launch Phase 1 of our condo project, The Anchorage, ahead of schedule.”
With construction of Phase I underway and nearly all of the units already spoken for, Bonczek said work is also continuing on several family lots, as well as the luxurious beachfront Starfish Isle townhomes.
“Demand continues to build,” he said. “And with three more phases of The Anchorage to come and some exciting new offerings in the pipeline, we look forward to creating opportunities for even more Bahamians.”
According to Bonczek, the appeal of Palm Cay is the result of its unique mix of top drawer amenities, beautiful beachfront views, elegantly appointed units and an already flourishing community atmosphere.
It also boasts a marina that is the closest to Exuma and with 194 slips, the largest in New Providence in terms of capacity.
