Turks & Caicos Real Estate continues to soar as 2022 is shaping up to be another strong year with buyer demand remaining solid in a fast-paced market with a lot of moving targets. Competition for desired properties is high with many listing agents managing multiple offers and off market properties selling without coming to market. Buyers know what they want, and sales agents are digging deep to find an appropriate investment or vacation home for their clients and customers.
Construction throughout Providenciales, even without large scale vertical development, at this time, is at an all-time high with new homes coming out of the ground in all community areas and stretching to the out islands. The biggest issue for builders and developers is trying to contain ever increasing construction costs hit hard by supply chain and inflationary issues.
In the forefront with new construction is the implementation of renewable energy which seems to be a top selling feature for new developments on island. Notable developers are on board with Renu Energy TCI, a renewable energy company that has also experience tremendous growth over the past three years with the installation of solar panels, tesla power walls and electric vehicles and accessories.
Fortis TCI has also been at work transforming the TCI energy landscape with the introduction of solar power programs to take advantage of this ample resource, C.O.R.E (Customer Owned Renewable Energy) and U.O.R.E. (Utility Owned Renewable Energy), with the latter program contracting several companies. The EV and charging station pilot project which was introduced in 2018 has started to catch on with several electric cars in use throughout and charging stations popping up across the island.
Leading the way in energy efficiency and various forms of renewable energy in Turks & Caicos was Green Revolution which was established in 2011. Since their formation the company has completed many projects both residential and commercial in scale, throughout the region. These projects are saving residents of the Caribbean hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.
With sustainability on peoples’ minds and in the news, we are proud that our country has embraced the importance of these initiatives and developed a plan for our beautiful by nature islands. The recent signing of the TCI Climate Change Charter which took place on Earth Day this past Friday, April 22nd during the 1st Annual Climate Change Summit entitled “Only One Earth – Invest In Our Planet”, the private and public sectors came together to take action with this roadmap as a guide to help protect and safeguard our environmental assets.

Outdoor entertainment areas include a covered living space off the great room, sun deck and infinity pool, and optional fire pit and summer kitchen and bar.

February 3.2022 – Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands
The Strand, Turks and Caicos, an exclusive residential resort community located on 2,230 feet of pristine shore frontage on Cooper Jack Bay, today announced the start of construction. Following the announcement of the new development in late 2020 and a very successful sales launch in 2021, the developers have received all permits and approvals and are underway building out single-family homes and several community amenities, including the marina and Beach Club. The project is expected to be complete by 2025.
With over $45 million in reservations and contracts to date, The Strand has seen incredible demand and is poised to sell half of its inventory by the end of spring 2022, positioning the property to become the premier private community in the Caribbean. Interest has been especially strong from young families who are looking for a second home in a safe and accessible destination with full-service amenities and five-star service. With rich airlift and a low tax environment, Turks and Caicos is an ideal choice for those seeking a second home island paradise.
With such strong demand coming from owners with young families, The Strand has also pivoted its residential design concepts to introduce three-bedroom managed villas, appealing to the needs of today’s buyers striving for flexibility and relaxed, resort-style living for their families. Priced at $3 million and situated directly on the water, these three-bedroom residences also increase rental opportunities for owners, solidifying The Strand as one of the best villa rental accommodations on the Island.
“The Caribbean, and Turks and Caicos in particular, now more than ever is seeing an influx of interest from a younger demographic, who are craving a special legacy home that can be passed down through generations,” said John Fair, managing director of The Strand. “The Strand is appealing to these active families due to the collection of shared sport and socializing amenities, such as access to the Beach and Racquet Club, a concept which does not currently exist in Turks and Caicos, and further creates opportunity for connectivity among owners and guests.”

An exclusive, sophisticated hideaway in a relaxed coastal setting, The Strand is the first of its kind on the Island with a limited collection of 46 luxury beachfront villas, custom residences, and homesites, alongside access to vibrant community programming and full resort amenities and services. The Beach Club flows into the centerpiece resort-style swimming pool, surrounded by native limestone, and the dramatic water’s edge restaurant and bar. Amenities include access to The Strand’s own Club Boats with a private captain, catamarans, kayaks, and paddleboards, as well as a tennis court, two pickle ball courts, and a state-of-the-art fitness center with a secluded yoga deck. Additionally, a la carte club services include in-home spa services, housekeeping, pre-arrival shopping, private chef and catering, airport transportation, landscape maintenance, an artist in residence program and security. In addition to the beachfront setting, the site offers 1,400 feet of canal and marina frontage, with a full marina and slips for owners, as well as several community yachts slips.
Conveniently located on an undeveloped, unspoiled stretch of coastline on the protected south side of Providenciales, The Strand is built from the ground up in the most sustainable way possible. In partnership with Renu Energy TCI, a local leader in solar home integration, The Strand offers solar packages on all its villas, making this development one of the first ultra-luxury community with this level of sustainability in the Caribbean.
Each of the residences is perched oceanside with direct access to the water below and ocean-facing bedrooms with uninterrupted views. The design-forward residences—in collaboration with RAD Architecture, Inc. and Modus Operandi interior design—are carefully hand-crafted to celebrate the island’s laidback lifestyle. Current residential offerings include:
