What happens when developers of a new marina could not attain permits to build a high-and-dry boat storage facility to accompany it? At Marina Bay 880, this created an opportunity for a new owner to create a luxury condominium project with an entirely new level of design, quality and resort-style living. Marina Bay 880′s luxurious new waterfront residences were conceptualized and created by developer Andrus Development Group and built by an award-winning team including Adache Architecture (Fort Lauderdale) and Naples-based DeAngelis Diamond.
The North Marina district, just north of downtown Clearwater, is now highlighted by a game-changing residential oasis: Marina Bay 880. Construction was recently completed, and the first residents are moving in. These spacious residences set a new bar of sophistication and style, each offering a water view. Residences are currently available from $767,000 to over $1.9 million. Marina Bay 880 surrounds a private marina with 69 boat slips, of which 47 include lifts.
The marina accommodates boats up to 80 feet in length with up to six-foot drafts, with electricity, water and a dockmaster. Boat- and marine-related services, as well as boat rentals, are next door. Marina Bay 880 residents enjoy the first right to lease a slip at market rate and may enter a long-term lease for multiple years. Nearly 16,000 square feet of amenity spaces also help set Marina Bay 880 apart from other Tampa Bay-area developments. Museum quality art in the 4,500 square foot clubroom and foyer creates a welcoming ambiance in keeping with the coastal contemporary theme.
Residents enjoy an Olympic-size lap pool (25 meters in length), two shallow water lounging shelves, Jacuzzi-style spa, fully outfitted fitness area with internet- connected equipment, an activity lawn, billiard and shuffleboard areas, large clubroom for events and meetings, a pantry for events, outside barbecues, fire table, and its own peninsula for morning or evening walks. A full-time (24 hours a day, seven days a week) concierge service assists residents with various needs. Each residence includes two parking spaces.
One veteran luxury real estate broker recently claimed, “It’s the most aesthetically pleasing project I’ve seen in two decades around the entire Tampa Bay Area – wow!” Marina Bay 880′s pet-friendly atmosphere enables pet owners to join the many local neighbors who walk their pets daily. Two pets are allowed per residence, with no weight limit. Various walking options are available, including the peninsula as well as nearby parks and the Pinellas Trail, which is only two blocks away.
Andrus Development Group is led by veteran commercial and residential real estate developer Brian Andrus, past president of the Florida Gulf Coast Commercial Association of Realtors (FGCAR). The company proudly supports Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco counties, Hope Villages of America, and Boy Scouts of America. The Marina Bay 880 sales center, located at 900 N. Osceola Avenue, is open seven days a week, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., with tours available by appointment.
