Named for its panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico, Estero Bay, and stunning sunsets, the Grandview at Bay Beach 11-story luxury high-rise to be built by award-winning developer London Bay within the gated Waterside neighborhood at Bay Beach on Estero Island offers exceptional value.
Whether taking advantage of the extensive array of amenities within the building itself or exploring the renowned attractions of Estero Island and the surrounding area, Grandview residents will experience the best of Southwest Florida’s highly coveted, relaxed lifestyle. Grandview is the only new high-rise tower in Southwest Florida that offers walkable beach access and immediate proximity to marinas situated just minutes from the Gulf of Mexico. Grandview will be the first condominium tower built on Estero Island since 2008 and the final tower in Waterside at Bay Beach. Nearly 40% of the Grandview residences are reserved, including 50% of the end residences that feature the 01 and 06 floor plans. Phase II pricing was introduced last month. Select purchase opportunities from the high $900s remain available. Buyers of the residences will preview the luxurious options and features they can select when they visit London Bay’s Selection Studio, which showcases the latest design trends in the building industry.
“It's been more than 10 years since a new building has been built on Estero Island, and design sensibilities have changed,” said Mark Wilson, president and CEO of London Bay. “The market is ready for something new. Grandview will be built on the last luxury high-rise pad available in Waterside at Bay Beach, one of the last opportunities on Estero Island. We’re creating a building that will fit nicely into Waterside while representing 2020 rather than the early 2000s. The building design is coastal contemporary with an up-to-date aesthetic that will create a splendid sense of arrival. The beauty of the location is there are spectacular views in all directions. Every view from the building will showcase either the Bay or the Gulf. Plus, the laid-back lifestyle of Estero Island – the boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, the beach, or just enjoying the local restaurants and coffee shops – it’s a great lifestyle that along with the beautifully designed building and residences offers tremendous value.”
The Grandview residences have been designed to showcase luxurious finishes and appointments, including volume tray ceilings accented with crown molding in the foyer, kitchen and dining areas. Purchasers will have an opportunity to meet with the London Bay’s Selection Studio staff to select the luxury options and features they prefer.
“The Selection Studio provides the ultimate selection experience by delivering creatively appointed living environments that reflect our clients’ personal styles,” said London Bay’s Selection Studio manager, Alena Birger. “We’ve created a selection program for Grandview residents and pre-priced the available selections. The Studio presents numerous choices for everything from cabinetry and countertops, to color palettes, flooring, bathroom tile, plumbing fixtures, accessories and artwork, and more, all of which is presented in a variety of vignettes that demonstrate how the finishes will play in a finished space. Clients will be invited to a preview appointment to introduce them to the features included in their new home, and to review available options. The option program allows clients to personalize their new home in a variety of styles and colors to suit their lifestyle and budget.”
Grandview will feature 58 open-concept residences ranging from 2,400 to 2,900 square feet with three or four bedrooms, dens, three or three and a half bathrooms, and private elevator access. Each residence includes covered outdoor terraces oriented to the southeast, south, and southwest. All six of the residences on the top floor will be exclusive penthouses with 11-foot ceilings and a private two-car garage per unit. Grandview will offer a pet-friendly living environment with no weight restrictions.
“The floor plans reflect London Bay’s nearly 30 years of residential design and construction experience, as well as the creativity of the building’s architect and interior designers,” said Wilson. “Our goal was to offer new, up-to-date plans that meet the needs of today’s homebuyers. Grandview’s open-concept plans are on-trend, unmistakably luxurious, and exceptionally livable. Spacious balcony areas will take full advantage of the views that are the building’s hallmark.”
“The Grandview plans provide spaces that allow for conversation, entertaining, media viewing, and indoor/outdoor living while showcasing the views,” said Jennifer Stevens, senior design director at Romanza Interior Design. “I envision a Grandview residence being finished with a cohesive color palette that accommodates personal collected items, artwork, and mementos. The terraces wrap the living areas and master suites, providing outdoor living areas that flow into the interior spaces, as well as a private retreat off the master suite.”
Grandview’s on-site, resort-style amenities will complement the building’s coastal contemporary architecture. Residents will host guests in two luxuriously appointed suites that offer access to the building’s lounge areas and amenities. Residents will take advantage of a fitness center featuring strength and cardio equipment and motorized privacy shades. The adjacent yoga studio, complete with a mirror wall, barre, and cushioned flooring for impact absorption, will provide space for Zen-seeking residents. Men’s and women’s changing rooms have been elegantly envisioned with sleek, stainless-steel fixtures and finishes, along with a shimmery wallcovering in a soft blue hue with a classic mix of cream and sliver mosaic for the mirror surround. A floating staircase will gracefully curve from the first-floor lobby to Grandview’s second-floor amenities level, “The EL,” a reference to the tower’s brand tagline of “Elevated Waterfront Living.” Grandview residents will also have access to the activities and amenities offered within Waterside, including a resort-style swimming pool and spa, tennis courts, 1.2 miles of walking and jogging paths adjacent to an expansive private open space, a fishing pier, beach access, and nearby marinas.
“Grandview’s living experience will start with a grand sense of arrival under an inviting canopy and the transition into a beautiful lobby,” said Wilson. “As soon as they enter the lobby, residents and guests will get the feeling of being in a luxurious, modern building with a wonderful design aesthetic. This is totally new for Fort Myers Beach. There are no existing buildings with the same sense of arrival or a similar lobby. Because the building’s amenities are so important, we created an unprecedented outdoor gathering space known as The EL. It will be an exceptionally comfortable space perfect for parties, family occasions, or other events. Trellised seating areas, fireplaces, a large screen TV, barbecue area, a marvelous bar, and a catering kitchen will create an inviting place to relax, socialize, and enjoy the views.”
