New construction of condos is booming on our area beaches from Perdido Key to the beaches of 30A. Bolstered by a booming economy and a shortage of existing beach inventory, the new construction offerings are the first in nearly a decade for gulf front luxury condos under way all along the Gulf Coast. A drive along our sandy beaches offers many new opportunities.
Vista Del Mar Condominium is the newest development in Perdido Key. Offering spacious three, four and five bedroom homes with floor plans the developer has called innovative and featuring generous balconies with outdoor grills, Vista Del Mar is truly a paradise found. This gated complex is located adjacent to Gulf Islands National Seashore on the eastern tip of the Key and offers expansive views of the park, the Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico. Amenities include an indoor heated pool, extravagantly appointed outdoor pool with deck and hot tub, high-end finishes and floorings, chefs kitchens featuring Wolf ranges and Subzero refrigerators and a wet bar with wine fridge.
Portofino Final Phase is underway and will be the last development on the eastern end of Pensacola Beach. Portofino Resort is the premier vacation destination in Pensacola Beach and offers a host of amenities and entertainment options. Current plans for towers 6 and 7 include a wellness center and a conference center. Expect more pools with waterfalls, children's pool and plenty of upscale seating areas. Portofino already has a top rated restaurant and snack bars on site; the new expansion will expand those offers and up the options for pampering yourself or your visitors.
