The Villas – Building A – 5 Villas and Building B – 8 Villas
The Villas Building A is well under way with walls coming out of the ground and swimming pool structures set in place and Building B with foundations complete are not far behind.

All Villas are oceanfront with prices starting at $2,495,000 for a 2-bedroom + Rooftop Terrace and $3,000,000 for a 3-bedroom.
Residences at The Strand are offered “turnkey,” with an optional furniture package, or you are welcome to customize your residence as you wish. All the amenities and operational facilities at The Strand are organized as a private club called The Strand Owners’ Club. Unlike owning a residence at a branded resort, the amenities and services at The Strand are focused on the homeowners, who are Club members, and their families and guests.
True Caribbean oceanfront lifestyle with the added benefit of Owners’ Club amenities and services unlike any other resort in Turks & Caicos Islands. We welcome you to explore more on the link below or contact a listing agent if you have specific questions.
The Luxury Residences are steadily changing the landscape of Cooper Jack Bay as the video provided below shows all of the exciting work that has been accomplished thus far.
Luxury R3 has all windows and doors installed, as well as all plumbing and electrical above ceilings, while Luxury R2’s ground floor slab is poured and walls are forming. Meanwhile, Luxury R7’s main pool base and walls are poured, and the main house ground floor slab will be poured this week. Luxury R1 has its retaining wall in place and work has begun to prefabricate the main house columns.
As for The Villas, Villa ‘A’ Building retaining walls are forming. The pools have been excavated and they will be prepping to pour the ground floor. At the same time, they are building out The Strand kitchen and restaurant area. The first of its kind in Provo, the kitchen will have a living green roof that will blend in with the native vegetation above. But they didn’t stop there—the dining experience at The Strand will also be a first-of-its-kind, with the dining tables on the iron shore edge overlooking a sugar sand beach and the Caicos Banks beyond.
Villa ‘B’ Building is set to start, at which time construction of the Main Pool area will begin. A combination of Old World-inspired stone walls, lush greenery, and your own loungers tucked into the limestone will give you the feeling that you have found your own Caribbean sanctuary.
With three of the custom lots reserved for Grand Residences they are beginning to extend utilities to the East of the development in preparation for these unique properties. The Main Parking retaining walls along Cooper Jack Road are up, and the retaining walls around the Clubhouse entry are being formed.
A lot has happened at The Strand in Cooper Jack Bay since the ceremonial Groundbreaking on March 25th, 2022. We recently published a video in social media (https://www.instagram.com/p/CfhEpytqBY5/) revealing that Cooper Jack Bay Road is now entirely paved. Road paving, as we witnessed in Turtle Tail (paved in 2016), is pivotal to increases in land and property values, with the most recent oceanfront land and oceanfront villa sales garnering a 30+% increase as compared to sale prices of recent years. The completion of Cooper Jack Bay Road was spearheaded by the Developers of The Strand, an ultra-luxury development which will bring tremendous added value to the surrounding neighborhood of Cooper Jack.
As for the construction updates at The Strand, Luxury Residence R3 is now at roof level with doors and windows being installed and Luxury Residences R2 and R7 are beginning the foundation stage. Of the six Luxury Residences, R8 is reserved leaving only one residence remaining available, R9 priced from $8.95M. There are three Grand Residences available priced from $10.5M. The Villas – Building A, is almost fully sold out and will begin construction imminently. The Villas are priced from $2.495M for a 2-bedroom and $3.1M for a 3-bedroom. Other construction milestones will be in the works in the coming months, including the reception building and resort beachfront area. We are excited about construction progress and sales momentum as we look forward to the future of The Strand and the quality lifestyle it will provide.
Our sales agents joined the development team at The Strand site yesterday to get a close up look on the incredible progress of Luxury Residence R3.
