Bijou Bay Harbor Begins Converting Reservations Into Contracts

Waterfront project reaches 60 percent sold milestone

Bijou Bay Harbor, a boutique-style waterfront condominium, has officially begun moving reservations into contracts for its 41 private residences, including five penthouses. With 60 percent of its available units sold, construction of the luxurious Bay Harbor Islands condominium is expected to start later this year.

Bijou Bay Harbor, which is being developed by Ability by Acierto, will feature open and light layouts with floorplans ranging from 900 to just over 2,000 square feet. Prices begin in mid-$600,000s and rise to $2 million for the penthouses.

“We’ve reached this milestone as a result of monumental efforts from our great sales team and valued broker community,” said Robert Morales, the vice president of operations for Ability by Acierto. “We look forward to continued success for this project and are excited to break ground. Bijou Bay Harbor is being developed at the perfect time when Bay Harbor Islands is experiencing a major resurgence.”

The planned nine-story building from architects Luis Revuelta and Charles H. Benson will offer casual luxury for young professionals and buyers from the U.S., Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe. Earlier this year, international decorator Adriana Hoyos was named the project’s interior designer.

Residents will enjoy boutique island living and casual elegance in the Bay Harbor Islands community. This walkable, urban enclave features upscale shops and dozens of restaurants, while the bustling Kane Concourse and the affluent shopping of Bal Harbour Shops is just steps over the Intracoastal Waterway. There’s also convenient access to Surfside, Aventura and Miami Beach.

Bijou Bay Harbor is the first South Florida development project from Ability by Acierto. The venture is a partnership between Conexo Inmobiliario, led by Andres Arias, and Acierto Inmobiliario, Colombia’s second largest developer. Headed by Juan Carlos Gonzalez, Acierto Inmobiliario has developed dozens of premier residential and commercial projects and millions of square feet of space across Colombia. Two marquee Medellín developments include Access Point, an exclusive four-tower office project, and Milla De Oro, an exclusive mixed-use project with offices, retailers and restaurants featuring the first Starbucks and Krispy Kreme in Medellín.
