The Shore Club On Long Bay Beachfront – A Progress Tour

Turks & Caicos Real EstateCourtyardPool_Nov9.2015.001Turks & Caicos Real Estate

On Monday, November 9th our sales agents at Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty were pleased to be given a progress tour of The Shore Club by Stan Hartling, CEO of Hartling Group and developer of The Shore Club, The Palms Resort and The Sands.  The tour provided the sales agents a fantastic glimpse of the progress and the superior quality within the development.  From the grand mahogany doors on the entrance of each suite, and the hand stamped tiles in the entryways to the elegant light fixtures, the condominium suites are beautifully detailed throughout.

Complementing the mahogany doors as well as the interior doorways are custom architectural hardware by leading designer, Ashley Norton, a provider of custom hardware to luxury hotels such as Ritz Carlton as well as some of the most distinctive homes in the US and beyond.  The hand-stamped tiles in the entryways and in the bathrooms that create an illusion of area carpets were crafted in and imported from the Dominican Republic.

We were also captivated by the luxurious spa-like bathrooms within each suite that include custom vanities that show as furniture pieces, elegant glass tile work throughout and sanctuary marble tops.  The center island kitchens in the suites are appointed with mahogany custom cabinets and granite countertops.  Both the granite and marble were personally hand selected in Vietnam by Stan Hartling to ensure consistency throughout the selection.

The condominium suites are also enhanced with Waterworks fixtures.  Waterworks brings impeccable style and artisanal quality craftsmanship to bathrooms and kitchens around the world.  Highly regarded as a premier design resource, Waterworks fixtures are de rigeur in many bespoke residences.

The selection of light fixtures, Chandeliers and wall sconces now installed in The Shore Club suites are by Currey & Company, a manufacturer of distinctive products with a vision to create and fulfill the desire for distinctive home furnishings.

Our tour also included a full viewing of the resort amenities currently under construction that will provide owners and guests a tropical oasis with plenty of areas for private reflection or family gatherings.

We look forward to the completion of The Shore Club on Long Bay Beachfront.  This elegant development provides an exceptional quality of life environment, in stunning natural surroundings.

Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty Official Broker for Shore Club

low rise condo building rendering

For the second time in 15 years, two of the most successful names in Turks and Caicos real estate development have formed an alliance.

The Hartling Group has named Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty (TCSIR) as the official broker for the Shore Club. The third luxury beachfront resort development for the Hartling Group, the $100 million Shore Club is now under construction on Long Bay beach.

Hartling Group CEO Stan Hartling, and Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s President Joe Zahm, first worked together in 1999, when Zahm provided consulting services on the design of phases two and three of Hartling’s first resort project on Providenciales – The Sands on Grace Bay.

The Sands became one of the first and most successful condo-resorts on Providenciales, and Zahm’s real estate agency (first established as Connolly Zahm Properties) became a powerhouse new development specialist before it morphed into its present form as TCSIR.

From that first occasion when Hartling and Zahm combined their collective expertise has come many years of professional respect and personal friendship between the two business leaders. “I’m really looking forward to working with Joe and his team again,” states Hartling. “We feel that combining our in – house abilities with Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty’s local, regional and international power, puts the Shore Club, and other Hartling Group developments in the optimal position to grow on our success. Joe, Nina Siegenthaler and their team have deep knowledge of the resort real estate model and luxury market, and have many tools at their disposal to penetrate the international market through the Sotheby’s International Realty Brand”.

Adds Zahm: “The timing is ideal for our team to represent the Shore Club to our international audience. Long Bay is now home to some of the finest completed and under-development estates in the Caribbean, with strong market demand and rapidly improving values. Just as Stan’s existing developments significantly exceeded expectations, so too will the Shore Club, with its highly evolved, lower density master plan, multiple swimming pools and restaurants, great condominium suites and incredible single family villas. Construction is progressing quickly and with over 60% of the condominiums sold, we look forward to introducing buyers to this exceptional opportunity to purchase a luxury condominium or villa within an expertly designed development in a private, exclusive setting”.

Beachfront condos at the Shore Club start from $1.4 million, and the six bedroom villas start from $5.5 million. The condos will be ready for occupancy in early 2016.

World-class luxury hotel brand Ritz-Carlton is in advanced negotiations to operate a multi-storey hotel and condominium project in Turks and Caicos Islands, (#turksandcaicos) replacing the much-vaunted JW Marriott hotel and casino development which was earmarked for Grace Bay, on the island of Providenciales.

Impeccable sources told The SUN that the Desarrollos Hotelco Turks and Caicos already has indicated to Government officials that they intend to switch from the JW Marriott brand to Ritz-Carlton, in a move that will delay construction of what will be the most significant and expensive hotel development in the history of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

When the SUN contacted Ms. Parool K. Shah, Ritz-Carlton Regional Director of Public Relations for the Americas for more details about the project, she stated: “I am delighted to confirm that The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company will indeed open a resort in beautiful Turks and Caicos’ Grace Bay as part of the global development pipeline, sometime after 2016.”

According to sources, the new owners of West Caicos have ditched plans to have Ritz-Carlton manage and operate their property, thus paving the way for the Venezuela-based Desarrollos group to capitalise on the high-end brand.

“It is true to say that there will be a delay in what was supposed to be a JW Marriott Hotel and Casino in Grace Bay, but I also have to stress that it will be a very positive delay because the entire scope, scale and cost of the project will increase and this will be of tremendous benefit to the entire Turks and Caicos Islands,” said the source who requested anonymity.

The official revealed that architects are in the process of re-designing plans for the high-end tourism development to bring the project in line with Ritz-Carlton standards.

“Let me put it like this. JW Marriott would have been a huge deal for the Turks and Caicos Islands, but Ritz-Carlton is definitely bigger and better,” the official added. “It will require much more detailed drawings and a whole new redesign. It will be one of the finest hotels in the world.”

Meantime, the source told The SUN that the Desarrollos Hotelco Turks and Caicos Ltd “would hardly want to build a 14-storey hotel”, although Government is about to have a public consultation on this contentious topic.

“I think it’s safe to say that they will stick with the nine-storey concept to avoid any further delays,” the source added.

Earlier this year, Walter Stipa, the majority investor of Desarrollos Hotelco Turks and Caicos Ltd., announced plans to open a new 380-room JW Marriott Hotel and Casino which will include 16 residential condos.

The nine-story hotel which will be built on a11-acre site, was scheduled to open in early 2016.

The billionaire Stipa is also the majority shareholder of the 269-room JW Marriott Hotel Caracas, the 207-room Venezuela Marriott Hotel Playa Grande and the 212-room Renaissance La Castellana Caracas. Additionally, he owns the 320-room Ritz-Carlton Aruba.

In the Caribbean, Ritz-Carlton has hotels in the Cayman Islands, Puerto Rico, and St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands.

In addition to 380 guest rooms and suites, the original plan for the JW Marriott was to feature a gourmet specialty restaurant, a three-meal-a-day restaurant, a lobby bar and lounge and a pool bar & grill, some 1,300 square meters of meeting space, including a ballroom; as well as a 962 square meter spa and fitness center, a kids/teen club, three swimming pools and a 901 square meter casino.

The primary architect for the project is Robert M. Coleman & Partners, whose also designed the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans, the Marriott’s Aruba Surf Club timeshare resort, the recently-opened Renaissance Curaçao Resort & Casino and the Ritz-Carlton Aruba.
