SOUTH FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla. – Grandview at Bay Beach, the first luxury condominium built on Estero Island in 10 years, continues to reach new heights. Construction of the 11-story tower has progressed to the ninth floor and many of the building’s 58 residences are sold.
“February has been a month for milestones,” said Mark Wilson, CEO and president of London Bay Development Group which is building Grandview on the southern tip of the island. “We’re getting close to topping off, which is generating a lot of interest from buyers who live elsewhere on the island.
Seasonal residents are also back in town for the first time since construction started last summer. They’re marveling at this beautiful new building taking shape. Construction is at the point where Grandview’s elevated architecture and design are really beginning to shine.”
London Bay started construction in July 2021 and is on track to welcome residents by spring 2023. A record $10 million in sales in 10 days has caused a quick rise in total sales.
“Sales and interest have been tremendous,” Wilson said. “People are realizing the rare opportunity Grandview provides – a premier location, modern amenities and spacious floor plans with a desirable timeline – a brand new residence next year.”
Grandview offers a blocks-from-the-beach location, modern amenities and luxury condominium homes with panoramic views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The building’s residences feature open-concept floor plans spanning 2,400 to 2,900 square feet with three and four bedrooms, up to three-and-a-half bathrooms and a den. Each home has private elevator access and dedicated parking in the main garage. Six exclusive top-floor penthouses feature 11-foot ceilings and a private two-car garage.
In these thoughtfully designed residences, a wide foyer leads to a living area that includes a great room with a breezy, screened covered terrace, an elegant dining area and a gourmet island kitchen with top-end appliances. Select floor plans also feature spacious dens, affording additional comfortable space for working or relaxing.
Each luxurious master suite offers spacious walk-in closets and sitting areas that create the ideal spot to enjoy water views and spa-worthy bathrooms boasting dual vanities and an oversized walk-in shower.
Grandview’s residences offer luxury features and finishes, including porcelain tile throughout living areas and bathrooms with fully tiled floors on all outdoor terraces as well as Kohler fixtures. Kitchens have Bosch stainless-steel appliances, natural stone countertops and an open island featuring cabinetry with self-closing drawers in a variety of finishes.
Grandview’s on-site amenities focus on wellness and a resort-inspired lifestyle. The building offers a fitness center with state-of-the-art strength and cardio equipment, a yoga studio with a mirror wall, barre, and cushioned flooring, and men’s and women’s changing rooms.
The EL, Grandview’s amenity hub, is elevated to a higher floor to maximize outdoor views of the mangrove-fringed bay and a connection to nature. A club-style social room features a linear fireplace, card tables, multiple seating areas, a catering kitchen and bar. Alfresco amenities include open-air and covered seating areas, firepits and an outdoor kitchen with two built-in grills and bar seating. A raised spa, colorful landscaping, and pergolas complement the welcoming outdoor ambience.
As the final building in Waterside at Bay Beach, Grandview residents also enjoy access to the full complement of the larger community’s activities and amenities, including a resort-style swimming pool and spa, and walking or jogging paths.
A fishing pier, beach access within walking distance, and nearby marinas offer additional recreational pursuits, including sailboat, jet ski and powerboat rentals, biking, fishing charters and sunset cruises. Grandview’s prime location just two miles north of Lovers Key State Park, provides easy access to destinations along the Great Calusa Blueway paddling trail, Lee County’s celebrated 190-mile kayak, paddleboard and canoe trail.
Grandview is minutes from the beaches of Fort Myers and world-class shopping, dining, championship golf courses and the cultural experiences of Naples.
