London Bay announced that Romanza Interior Design’s Luann Powers Gliwski has completed the preliminary design for a furnished model residence at Grandview at Bay Beach, an 11-story luxury high-rise being developed by London Bay on the last remaining high-rise pad within the gated Waterside neighborhood at Bay Beach on the southern tip of Fort Myers Beach on Estero Island.
The furnished model will feature finishes from London Bay’s Selection Studio. 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. Open-concept floor plans ranging from 2,400 to 2,900 square feet under air and an array of on-property amenities will provide an ideal setting for enjoying life in Southwest Florida. Pre-construction pricing starts in the $900s, an exceptional price per square foot. London Bay is accepting reservations for residences at Grandview.
Grandview will feature 58 open-concept residences with three or four bedrooms, dens, three or three and a half bathrooms, and private elevator access. Each of the floor plans conveys a sense of livability rarely found in condominium offerings and offers spectacular views. Each Grandview residence will include covered outdoor terraces oriented to the southeast, south, and southwest. Guest bedrooms in each floor plan will have private access to sunrise terraces. Each residence will have one covered garage parking space and its own air-conditioned owner’s storage room. The six 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. Pre-construction pricing starts in the $900s.
As planned, the model will showcase London Bay’s 03 or 04 floor plan, both of which include 495 square feet of terrace space, as well as 2,767 square feet under air, a total of 3,262 square feet perfectly suited to Grandview’s island lifestyle. Private elevator lobbies and foyers flow into living areas with island kitchens, large dining areas, and great rooms opening to screened and covered terraces. Two of the guest bedrooms in the four-bedroom, three-and-one-half bath plans open to a spacious sunset terrace. The third guest bedroom is situated off the great room and offers a large, comfortable space with a walk-in closet. The master suites feature two walk-in closets, baths with separate vanities, walk-in showers, and separate water closets, as well spacious bedrooms.
Gliwski’s preliminary design is focused on creating an effortless yet sophisticated environment with layered textures. Her color palette will include warm grey backgrounds with aqua marine and coral accents. As planned, flooring throughout the living areas will be neutral porcelain tile with grey veining that will convey a natural stone look. Clean-lined furnishings in the great room will include a neutral chenille sofa, side chairs with a richly textured neutral fabric, a glass-topped cocktail table with a metallic base, and a low media console finished with grey-toned wood. The feature wall will be covered with driftwood-toned grass cloth with a metallic backing. An area rug with a contemporary accent pattern and a coffered ceiling detail with lightly contrasting crown molding will complete the look. To unify the design, a rectangular dining table will also feature a glass top and a metallic base. The dining chairs will be fully skirted in a neutral linen fabric. A buffet will feature a painted grey finish.
In the kitchen, the island base will present a grey stained finish that will be contrasted by soft white perimeter cabinetry. Both the island and the perimeter will be finished with white quartz countertops that will include soft grey veining. Polished chrome fixtures and pendant lighting over the island will contribute to the kitchen’s engaging ambiance.
Gliwski’s plan for the study includes a square coffered ceiling detail with crown molding and walls finished in a deeper grey. As planned, furnishings will include a desk and credenza, both of which will feature a driftwood-toned finish. A side chair and ottoman will be covered with a layered texture fabric. The space will be anchored by a cream and grey woven area rug.
The warm grey wall tones in the living areas will be carried into the master bedroom. A king-size bed with a tufted pale grey velvet upholstered headboard will serve as the room’s design highlight. The nightstands and dresser will be finished in a grey metallic tone. A hallway leading to the master bath will be flanked by spacious walk-in closets. Painted pale grey vanity cabinets in the master bath will play against white quartz countertops with soft grey veining. Chrome plumbing fixtures, glass cabinetry knobs, and sconces incorporated in the vanity mirrors will lend a note of sophistication. The porcelain tile flooring material will be carried up the walls of the shower.
“The Grandview floor plans provide the effortless way of living that we all love in Southwest Florida,” said Gliwski. “The layouts have great consistency because there is no break in the materials used. The open floor plans create an unbroken line with no separation. The relaxed, comfortable feeling conveyed by each of the plans is in perfect harmony with the welcoming vibe projected by the building’s exterior architecture and by the amenities that have been designed to encourage social interaction.”
Grandview’s 01 and 06 floor plans offer 3,286 square feet, 2,923 square feet of which is under air and 363 square feet of terrace space. The three-bedroom plus den, three and a half bath floor plans feature a private elevator entry. Wide foyers lead to spacious living areas that include the great room, dining area, and island kitchen. With 2,710 square feet, including 2,414 square feet under air and 296 square feet of terrace space, Grandview’s Residence 02 and 05 plans offer spacious living areas that include an island kitchen, a large dining area, and a great room that opens to a screened covered terrace. Two walk-in closets are featured in the master suites, as well as baths with dual vanities, walk-in showers, and separate water closets. Three full baths are included in the Residence 02 and 05 plans.
Grandview will be the first condominium tower built in Fort Myers Beach since 2008 and the final tower in Waterside at Bay Beach. Situated two miles north of Lovers Key State Park that is known for its wildlife sightings, shelling and dog beach, Grandview is minutes from the beaches, shopping, dining, and nightlife that have made South Fort Myers Beach a popular destination. Nearby marinas will provide a complete range of docking and maintenance services while offering immediate deep-water access to the Gulf.
