By day, the wide expanses of pristine beaches that extend the entire length of South Fort Myers Beach invite sun worshipers to unwind, take in the view, and enjoy the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
For the more active at heart, outdoor adventures of all kinds, including boating, deep-sea fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and shelling, are a prime attraction. In the early evening, residents and visitors gather on the beach to applaud the setting sun as it sinks into the horizon. Once the sun goes down, life on the island is all about moonlight walks on the beach, dining, and music. Suffice it to say that no matter the time of day, the living experience on South Fort Myers Beach is relaxed and presents a variety of choices for enjoying every facet of life.
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 being developed by London Bay Development Group within the gated Waterside neighborhood at Bay Beach on the southern tip of South Fort Myers Beach will offer residents the best of the internationally renowned community’s lifestyle. Grandview will be the final tower built in Waterside at Bay Beach. It is the only new high-rise tower in Southwest Florida offering walkable beach access and immediate proximity to marinas just minutes from the Gulf of Mexico. The combination of beautifully designed open-concept floor plans, meticulously vetted finishes, and an array of on-property resort-style amenities continue to make Grandview a gateway to the coveted South Fort Myers Beach lifestyle.
Now, for a limited time, Grandview’s luxurious residences and South Fort Myers Beach lifestyle are available to homebuyers with a $100,000 developer incentive offered by London Bay on all new reservations. The $100,000 incentive can be applied against the purchase price of any available residence at Grandview. Purchasers have recognized the appeal of Grandview’s location, the South Fort Myers Beach lifestyle, the building’s flowing, open-concept floor plans, and the array of on-property amenities. Nearly 40% of the Grandview residences are now reserved, including 50% of the end residences that feature the 01 and 06 floor plans. Select purchase opportunities from the high $900s remain available. Reservations are being accepted.
“As we envisioned what the consummate South Fort Myers Beach high-rise experience could be like, it became apparent that Waterside at Bay Beach offered an ideal location for Grandview,” said Mark Wilson, president and CEO of London Bay. “The beauty of the Grandview location is there are spectacular views in every direction. Every view corridor is designed to showcase either Estero Bay or the Gulf. The laid-back lifestyle of South Fort Myers Beach was equally important. People come to South Fort Myers Beach for the beach, the boating, deep-sea fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, and to enjoy the local restaurants, coffee shops, galleries, and specialty stores. We’re excited to know the residents of Grandview and their guests will enjoy a genuine South Fort Myers Beach experience, as well as a beautifully designed coastal contemporary building and open-concept residences that are luxurious and remarkably livable.”
South Fort Myers Beach is best known for its emerald-toned waters and beautiful beaches. Unlike the coastal areas farther to the south, however, South Fort Myers Beach puts virtually every aspect of life at the Gulf at its residents’ doorsteps. In addition to fishing charters, dolphin or sunset cruises, and just relaxing on the sun-kissed beaches, nearby marinas will provide boating and fishing enthusiasts with docking and maintenance services while offering deep-water access to the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Power boat, sailboat, and jet ski rentals are available. Kayakers enjoy the area’s backwaters and inlets lined with mangroves or traversing the 190-mile Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail’s marked canoe and kayak trail that meanders through the coastal waters and inland tributaries of Lee County. Lovers Key State Park is located two miles south of the Grandview site, and is known for its wildlife sightings, bird watching, shelling, and dog beach. South Fort Myers Beach residents also enjoy taking in magnificent sunsets while socializing at the community’s beachfront bars and restaurants.
South Fort Myers Beach is acknowledged for its mix of traditional Southwest Florida influences and newer, more up to date styles. That mix is reflected in the community’s shopping venues that include new boutiques and old-time markets. Restaurants ranging from casual, flip flops on the beach, to fine dining are located at Santini Plaza that is within walking distance of Grandview. Savvy diners enjoy a taste of South Fort Myers Beach’s native seafood harvest that is fresh off the docks and delivered to local restaurants. After dinner, the community’s vibrant music scene includes performances by musicians at establishments that line the beach.
Closer to home, Grandview will feature an array of resort-inspired amenities that will encourage a vibrant social scene. Residents will host guests in two luxuriously appointed suites that offer privacy for visitors and access to the building’s amenities. Residents will also take advantage of the building’s fitness center that will feature strength and cardio equipment. The adjacent yoga studio will include a mirror wall, barre, and cushioned flooring for impact absorption. Men’s and women’s changing rooms have been elegantly envisioned with sleek stainless-steel fixtures and finishes.
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.” A catering kitchen will be available to those enjoying the EL’s lanai and outdoor bar, while a series of covered and open-air gathering spaces with built-in seating, green spaces, floral displays, grills, and fire pits will encourage a connection with nature while maximizing outdoor views. An interior club room will include more intimate gathering areas as well, as a bar and fireplace. Grandview residents will also have access to the activities and amenities offered within Waterside, including a resort-style swimming pool and spa, tennis courts, walking and jogging paths adjacent, an expansive private open space, a fishing pier, beach access, and the nearby marinas.
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. In addition to its fully-amenitized ambiance, Grandview will offer a pet-friendly living environment with no weight restrictions.
