Since 2014, sandcastles have been the closest thing to new residential construction anywhere along Clearwater Beach. That dwelling drought has finally ended with the recent groundbreaking - or should that be sand shifting - to make way for Pura Vida Residences. These 22 three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom living spaces located along the waterfront are expected to begin welcoming residents by late 2019.

Not only will this project add a new, high-end, high-rise to the area, it will also afford its occupants bragging rights to living on the most acclaimed beach in the U.S.

TripAdvisor awarded Clearwater Beach first place among its Top 10 Travelers’ Choice Beaches in the U.S. earlier this year, noting the following attributes of this West Coast asset:

“Clearwater Beach dazzles with two and a half miles of sugar-white sand, crystal-clear waters and tranquil Gulf breezes. Perched on a barrier island, the beach offers calm, shallow water, making it an ideal playground for families.”

The eight-floor beachfront community will offer stunning views of both its entryway span of sand and the sparkling Gulf of Mexico waters. Units feature an ample amount of space that ranges from 2,000 to 3,000 square feet. Perched along the northern end of Clearwater Beach, the development will be within walking distance of Pier 60 as well as nearby retailers and restaurants.

Amenities include a resort-style pool, on-site fitness facility, air-conditioned storage areas, covered parking and condos fully wired with Smart Home Residence Technology.

“This is a rare opportunity to purchase a new construction residence in an area where many people dream about living,” said Laren Jansen, listing agent at Coastal Properties Group International. “The soft sugary white sands of Clearwater Beach combined with the luxurious details of Pura Vida Residences present a lifestyle like no other.”
