Project to Include Marina inside 220-Acre Private Island Community in Bradenton, Florida
June 9, 2017 – Minto Communities and Margaritaville Holdings today announced the continuation of their partnership with the development of a new marina and 132 luxury residences at Harbour Isle in Bradenton, Florida. Minto’s 220-acre private island community is located on Anna Maria Sound directly across from Anna Maria Island, which has been named by USA Today as one of the 10 best “secret” beaches in Florida.
“We look forward to bringing Margaritaville’s fun, escapism and casual-luxe lifestyle to Harbour Isle, a community already known for its charming seaside appeal,” said John Cohlan, chief executive officer of Margaritaville. “We are thrilled to extend our partnership with Minto to include luxury residences at that one particular harbour in Bradenton, Florida.”
Featuring Margaritaville’s relaxed, coastal-inspired design, the One Particular Harbour marina will be located adjacent to 132 luxury residences. The marina will include 55 wet slips and 128 dry slips, ships store, and up to 30,000 square feet of commercial space with restaurants, entertainment and shops. State-of-the-art aspects will feature floating boat docks and an enclosed boat storage facility capable of supporting vessels up to 42 feet in length. Construction on the marina has begun and is slated for completion in spring 2018.
“The Marina Walk residences on One Particular Harbour will provide owners with walkable access to boating, dining and entertainment on Florida’s last private island in one of the most iconic Gulf Coast settings,” said William Bullock, senior vice president of Minto Communities. “There is no other place like it.”
The One Particular Harbour residences will be located in the Marina Walk neighborhood. Featuring island-inspired design and luxury finishes, all offer spectacular views of Anna Maria Sound or the lagoon. Priced from the high $400’s, residences in Marina Walk range from 1,483 square feet under air to 1,650 square feet under air. Floor plans include two and three bedrooms with two or three bathrooms, spacious master suite, gourmet kitchen, dramatic living and dining areas, and expansive screened lanai. Move-in ready homes are now available.
Marina Walk is the third and newest neighborhood on Harbour Isle. The first two neighborhoods – Mangrove Walk and Phase One of Edgewater Walk – sold out soon after opening. Each neighborhood has its own private amenities, including a resort-style pool, kayak launch, outdoor kitchen and more.
All owners have access to the 23,000 square-foot Beach Club at Harbour Isle, which opens to breathtaking views of Anna Maria Sound and the Intracoastal Waterway. Impressive luxury amenities include a 4,200-square-foot fitness center, second floor Sky Bar Lounge with billiards area and second floor balcony for outdoor dining. Other Club amenities include a covered Cabana Bar, resort-style swimming pool, Jacuzzi, private lounging cabanas, yoga lawn, event lawn and beach recreation for launching kayaks and paddleboards.
Winner of multiple Parade of Homes awards, including “Best Overall Community” and “Best Amenities” for six consecutive years, Harbour Isle’s charming southern coastal style architecture presents an inviting picture of relaxed seaside living. A gated entrance, distinguished by an observation tower, opens to a Royal Palm-lined streetscape bordering a 38-acre lake at the center of the community. A two-mile walking path encircles the island.
Harbour Isle is located at 12300 Manatee Avenue West in Bradenton, Florida. The Harbour Isle sales center is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. For information, call 888-827-3061 or visit www.OPHMintoUSA.com.
