Sales center to be demolished to make way for 41-unit luxury condo development
BAY HARBOR ISLANDS, Fla. – (Jan. 10, 2017) –Bijou Bay Harbor hosted its Farewell to the Sales Center event to celebrate the upcoming groundbreaking of the luxury development. With 60 percent of its available units sold, construction of the boutique-style condominium is set to begin shortly. One of the guests that very evening snatched up one of the spacious units in the waterfront oasis.
There were nearly 100 attendees for the private event, including brokers, buyers and neighbors. Guests were greeted by LED-lit bubble performers outside of the 2,000-square foot, on-site sales center. The event also featured live music from The French Horn Collective, an illuminated photo booth and a luxury car exhibition staged by Ocean Cadillac.
Bijou Bay Harbor’s internationally acclaimed interior designer, Adriana Hoyos, created and exhibited special sculptures during the event, which were inspired by children’s drawings. All proceeds of each piece sold will go to UNICEF in an effort to stop violence against children. As a UNICEF Ecuador Goodwill Ambassador, Hoyos designed the sculptures specifically for the organization.
“This event was a monumental occasion for Bijou Bay Harbor and the island community,” said Robert Morales, vice president of operations for Ability by Acierto. “The transformation of Bay Harbor Islands has been nothing short of phenomenal. We know Bijou Bay Harbor will be an integral element in the city’s continued growth.”
Bijou Bay Harbor is the first South Florida development project from Ability by Acierto. The U.S. development company founded by respected mega-developer Juan Carlos Gonzalez has partnered with Conexo Inmobiliario. Andres Arias, founder of Conexo Inmobiliario, will serve as the president of new developments for Ability by Acierto.
Bijou Bay Harbor will feature 41 private residences, including five penthouses with open and light layouts. Floorplans range from 900 to just over 2,000 square feet. Prices begin in the mid-$600,000s and rise to $2 million for the penthouses.
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.
“We’re really looking forward to the next phase of Bijou Bay Harbor as we get ready to break ground,” said Liza Hernandez, director of sales. “It will be amazing to see this project come to life. Bijou will be the monument for luxury, taste and design on the island. We are bringing a new standard of design and development to Bay Harbor Islands.”
With Bijou Bay Harbor as its debut project, Ability by Acierto seeks to expand its development portfolio.
