OCEAN Village is arguably Gibraltar’s ultimate contemporary success story and this year looks to be one of the most exciting yet for the mixed use resort.

It all kicks off with the Gibraltar carnival this week, hosted at Ocean Village on February 20 and 21.

The carnival spirit will be positively tangible, with Cuban and Latin music, fancy dress and masquerade parties to see the adults through until late on Friday night/Saturday morning.

However, Saturday 21 is all about families. The activities start at 12pm and continue until 5pm, with a fancy dress competition for kids, face painting, a photo booth, fun fair games, a bouncy castle and rodeo bull, gladiator dueling and dancing, just to name a few of the activities planned for the day.

The rest of the year looks to be just as exciting with product launches and charity fun runs in the planning stages.

We can’t mention too much, but safe to say watch this space!

Of course, Ocean Village will also be hosting the annual Cardboard Boat Race (usually taking place at the end of August to the beginning of September) offering fun and excitement for all the family and to the spectators of this fantastically popular event.

This year has also seen the launch of ‘What’s On at Ocean Village’, a monthly marketing initiative which can be found online which details special offers and promotions from the restaurants, bars and shops – as well as upcoming events.

With its distinctive blue glass-clad residential towers, Ocean Village is Gibraltar’s ‘shop, eat, drink, play’ destination, offering everything to those who want to work hard and play hard and is located only 10 minutes walk from the border.

There is a wide array of venues, including Asian Fusion, Indian and Cuban restaurants as well as popular favourites, such as Pizza Express, a variety of bars, clubs and cafes, plus Gibraltar’s only casino – and all located within the busy marina.

For your day-to-day needs, there is also an estate agent, beauty salons, a specialist boutique, insurance and a convenience store, to name but a few!

Ocean Village Marina and neighbouring Marina Bay cater for even the largest of superyachts and 2014 saw the official launch of the highly-anticipated Sunborn Yacht Hotel. The 189-room five-star hotel boasts a swimming pool, sun decks, a spa and fitness centre, cocktail bar, fine dining and top-floor restaurants, a grand ballroom and conference area for 500 people.

In July 2014, the developers of Ocean Village began work on the construction of the World Trade Center, located minutes away from Ocean Village, and completion is expected Spring 2016. Demand has been high with over 60% already sold or let and a further 20% under negotiation.

Make sure you don’t miss out on what is happening in Ocean Village during 2015 – check out  Ocean Village on Facebook for more information on upcoming events, special offers and promotions.

All Systems Go For World Trade Center Gibraltar http://oceanvillage.gi/systems-go-world-trade-center-gibraltar/ Wed, 09 Apr 2014 12:29:01 +0000 http://oceanvillage.gi/?p=1196 Following an agreement with the Government of Gibraltar announced this week, the £45m, World Trade Center Gibraltar project is expected to break ground in the ...

Following an agreement with the Government of Gibraltar announced this week, the £45m, World Trade Center Gibraltar project is expected to break ground in the first half of 2014 and be ready for occupation by the end of 2015.

Delivering a world-class working environment in what will be the largest single office building on the Rock at 15,464m², World Trade Center Gibraltar (WTCG) will be intrinsic to the next phase of Gibraltar’s economic growth.  The project’s Head of Sales and Marketing, Pete Burgess, said, “It will put Gibraltar even more firmly on the world business map and provide local enterprises with the opportunity to promote themselves across the globe through the World Trade Center Association which operates on every continent.”

“World Trade Center Gibraltar will become a trusted partner for companies in Gibraltar and offer space to businesses of all sizes, from one man start-ups to major corporates, helping them to profitably manage growth,” continues Pete.  “It will be the perfect entry point to the territory for new companies that wish to take advantage of Gibraltar’s well-known corporate tax benefits as well as providing bespoke, completely flexible, prestigious solutions for those businesses that are already here.”

“Businesses locate to World Trade Centers across the globe because they know they will get premium quality accommodation and service at the world’s signature corporate address.  That is why World Trade Center is home to some of the world’s biggest brands such as Apple, MasterCard and J.P.Morgan.  In fact, the majority of the world’s top 500 corporations have an office in a World Trade Center.”

The developer also believes that the project will act as a catalyst for attracting digital businesses to Gibraltar by being the only office development in the territory connected directly to the new Europe-India undersea fibre-optic cable which gives 100GB bandwidth and data transfer speeds of 3.2TB per second.  This will allow trading on the major stock exchanges in milliseconds, vital for companies dedicated to trading stocks and bonds.

“No one locally can compete,” finishes Burgess.  “We’re ideally located just nine minutes from Gibraltar’s new £65m international airport terminal and the border with Spain, four minutes from the town centre and only one minute from the bars and restaurants of Ocean Village Marina, Gibraltar’s premier residential and retail development.  It’s little wonder contracts have already been issued to our anchor tenant and negotiations are ongoing for a ‘big five’ accountancy firm and a New York securities trader.”

WTCG will have ground floor parking as well as allocated spaces in a new 500-space multi-storey car park, a 24 hour double-height reception, breakout and relaxation areas for employees and visitors, an international café brand, and a fabulous landscaped tree-filled atrium running the full length of the building.

The project, from the same developer as Ocean Village, is accompanied by the planned construction of nearby short-stay residential accommodation to help alleviate the current shortage, and an additional 900m² of eco-friendly healthy working offices which are already under construction.  The first phase, Trinity House, is at an advanced stage and scheduled for completion within 14 weeks.  Using solid cross-laminated timber from sustainably grown forests, it’s the first nearly carbon-neutral building in Gibraltar.  Delivered cut-to-size from Austria, the process offers the shortest possible construction periods, minimising on-site disruption, without compromising high quality standards.  The new offices have already been pre-let to a private international bank and to a European lottery company, bringing 100 desk-based jobs to the Rock.

Over the last five years Gibraltar’s economy has flourished despite the global economic turmoil. Gibraltar’s GDP is estimated to have grown by 35% with 7.8% in 2012/2013 alone – and is ranked in the top 20 for growth globally.  Shipping, financial services, tourism, and more recently, online gaming (28 e-gaming firms now account for 20% of Gibraltar’s GDP), form the keystones.  Its staunchly British community of 30,000 enjoys a GDP per capita of £41,138 and unemployment is less than 2%.  The 6.8km² territory enjoys a legal system based on UK common law, low business-friendly taxation, no CGT nor VAT, little red tape, EU membership and regulation, OECD White List status, a strategic geographic position, English language, Latin flavour and year-round sunshine.

The world’s first five-star yacht hotel, Sunborn Gibraltar, is now open for business in Ocean Village.

Its curtain-raiser coincided with the official start of European summertime.

Sandra Lamplough, Marketing Manager for Ocean Village, says, “The opening of Sunborn Gibraltar is perfectly timed for us.

Not only are the promenades of Ocean Village getting busy with footfall en-route to wine, dine and overnight in five-star style, we’re also seeing a number of other projects come to fruition including additional berths, office space, new eateries and bars, and the now customary summer live music programme on Leisure Island.

Channel 5 is deliberating a third series of the documentary Gibraltar: Britain in the Sun which received higher than expected ratings and audiences of up to 1.9 million viewers.”
