Waterfront project welcomes existing neighbors and potential new neighbors to enjoy fresh food, music and fun
Bijou Bay Harbor, a boutique-style waterfront condominium, has launched its weekly Farmer’s Market which will take place every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the development’s garden-like sales center. The grand opening of the Farmer’s Market was a huge success with a myriad of food options, great music and picturesque waterfront backdrop.
More than 70 people came out for the grand opening including members of the Bay Harbor Islands Town Council and Hon. Linda Zilber, the former mayor of Bay Harbor Islands. Many people took advantage of the walkability of the community to enjoy an afternoon of sunshine. Other guests arrived by boat or on paddleboards and kayaks using Bijou Bay Harbor’s bay access.
“Opening up a farmer’s market was a great opportunity for guests to mingle with their neighbors and for potential buyers to see what type of community they’d be living in,” said Liza Hernandez, Bijou Bay Harbor’s director of sales. “There is a need for this in the area for people who like to walk or cycle around their neighborhood on the weekends. We thought Bijou Bay Harbor would be the perfect place for the community to enjoy the water and delicious food from local businesses.”
Participating vendors brought fresh produce, acai bowls, local honey, orchids and plants, Indian food, fresh-made ceviche, fresh-baked goods, handmade soaps, artisanal made-to-order brick oven pizza, olive oils and more.
With 60 percent of its available units sold, construction of the luxurious Bay Harbor Islands condominium is expected to start later this year. At that point, the Weekly Farmer’s Market will move to a different location, still in Bay Harbor Islands.
Bijou Bay Harbor, which is being developed by Ability by Acierto, 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 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.
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.
With Bijou Bay Harbor as its debut project, Ability by Acierto seeks to expand its development portfolio.
