Dart Submits Application for Beachrock Removal

Dart Real Estate has submitted a coastal works application for partial removal of beachrock immediately offshore the area north of Kimpton Seafire and Tiki Beach on Cayman Islands.

This site has been identified as the preferred location for a five-star resort and residences, Dart said in its release.

The rationale for the proposed shoreline improvements is to remove exposed beachrock, which is soft rock comprised of cemented sand, where it protrudes along the shoreline, impeding beachgoers’ ability to enter the sea and swim.

This will enhance the recreational quality of the beach for residents and visitors and will facilitate development of the luxury tourism property with a conceptual program of 225 hotel rooms, 80 residences and 10 villas, Dart said.

The Coastal Works Application follows a beachrock trial which was approved in November 2016 and executed on 7 December 2016.

Coastal engineering consultants Calvin Giordano & Associates and Applied Technology & Management Inc. evaluated the project using advanced computer modelling and found that the proposed beachrock removal would have minimal impact on the beach in the project area and would allow the beach to recover naturally after storm activity.
