The AJ visits the Turks and Caicos Islands
‘People call our sales office, and without having seen the plot or design, they’ll say: “I’ll take a Chipperfield”, or “I’ll take a Zaha Hadid”. Design coordinator Sandra Nassima is referring to the luxury villas which her employer, Turkish property entrepreneur Dr Cem Kinay, has just started building.
Nassima is speaking from a white sandy beach in the middle of the Caribbean approximately 914km from Miami. More specifically, she is on Dellis Cay, one of the islands that makes up the Turks and Caicos Islands, a British territory now at the centre of corruption allegations.
