Work has begun on 22 new condos on Clearwater Beach

Published May 21, 2019

CLEARWATER — Construction has begun on Pura Vida Residences, touted as Clearwater's only new beachfront condominiums since 2014. On the northern part of Clearwater Beach within walking distance of Pier 60, the project — which translates as the "simple life'' — will have units ranging from 2,000 to 3,000 square feet. Each will have three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.

Avalon Landing Holdings LLC is developing the condos, which are being marketed by Coastal Properties Group. Prices range from $1.25 million to $1.85 million; more than half of the units already have been sold. Earlier this year, Clearwater Beach was named the best beach in the United States by the travel site TripAdvisor.
