Easy Living; Hard to Forget

This slogan for a popular perfume commercial kept repeating itself in my head as I wrote this story. That’s likely because thoughts of the Windsong Resort condominium project conjured up the same dreamy, romantic notions as the perfume advertising . . . in this case, referring to a luxurious, carefree lifestyle on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Windsong is among the latest resort condominiums to be built on the western side of acclaimed Grace Bay Beach in Providenciales. It occupies a lengthy swath (450 feet) of sugar-sand beach between The Residences at Coral Gardens and a number of single-family homes. It’s part of a private, peaceful, neighborly enclave, made all the more so by the developers’ decision to limit Windsong to only four stories and 50 condominiums spread over three beachfront buildings.

Windsong is the kind of place where you’ll find a number of niches to feel at home. It might be on a lounge chair sunk into the deep, golden sand outside your door . . . or floating in the warm, tranquil waters with mask and snorkel, watching the lively action of a bustling reef just offshore. On days when you feel like relaxing around a pool, there are two from which to choose: one for quiet contemplation, sunbathing and reading, another for family-inspired fun. Both are front and center to the entrancing view: deep blue sky, glittering turquoise sea, and an extra-wide band of pristine beach. When hunger and thirst strike, satiation is as close as the open air oceanfront cafe. Accessed via a dramatic waterfall bridge and several steps down from the pool deck, diners have underwater views into the pool through a saltwater aquarium. In the evenings, entertainment will focus around the piano bar.

The Windsong offers a choice of one, two and three bedroom condominium suites, ranging in size from 650 to over 4,000 square feet and priced from $450,000 to $2,000,000. With something for everyone (including unbelievable penthouses with open roof decks complete with Jacuzzis), all enjoy outstanding ocean views, enhanced by “disappearing” pocket doors to balconies and terraces for maximum exposure to the magnificent Grace Bay seascape and refreshing tradewinds.

At the same time, all the details are taken care of. Stucco exteriors and an aluminum roof are well suited to the seaside environment and all buildings include sprinkler systems in case of fire. Many units are also designed with lock-out studios, to help owners earn a rental income when they are not in residence.

Molter & Company, an award-winning real estate project management firm, leads the development of Windsong Resort. Well-known as one of the preeminent development and construction firms in South Florida, the company combines a decade of hospitality management with over 20 years of real estate development, with projects ranging from luxury oceanfront villas, waterfront condominiums, single family homes and townhouses to clubhouses and marinas. Under the leadership of Jim Molter, the company has earned a long-standing reputation for innovative design, quality craftsmanship, sensitivity to community and environmental concerns and financial integrity.

Jim Molter is Windsong’s developer, and will serve as its resident manager once the doors open early in 2008. With a friendly, down to earth manner that complements his extensive knowledge of construction and hospitality management, Molter’s attitude mirrors the charm and intimacy only made possible in a smaller development with an on-site manager.

He enthusiastically describes a number of enhancements that will welcome residents and guests with open arms. “We have an elevator that will travel directly between the reception building and guest rooms, to make it easy to transport luggage, groceries, gear. There’s convenient underground parking and individual, secured storage spaces for residents. We have an open air pavilion that’s ideal for weddings and family gatherings and a business/conference center to cater to the small meetings market. Our spa and wellness center is a great place to unwind and de-stress.”

Most importantly, Molter wants Windsong to feel like a warm, welcoming home in the tropics, an echo of the way “old Provo” used to be. Towards this end, he says “I’m planning lots of special events to bring together guests, residents and our local neighbors, things like themed buffet nights at the pavilion, movie screenings in the conference rooms and game nights.” In spite of its peaceful location, Windsong is close-by to a number of excellent restaurants and the supermarket and within easy driving distance to the airport, shopping areas and the Provo Golf & Country Club.

Molter says that plans for Windsong have been in the making since 1999, when the land was purchased along with a residential home on site that is currently being used as the sales office. Windsong’s lovely design, blending sophisticated architecture with casual, carefree waterfront living, was created by the architectural firm of Peacock + Lewis, best known for their innovative golf course clubhouse designs in the southeastern United States. They teamed up with Conservative Architects, headed by TCI native Anthony Walkin, who provides knowledge and skill in working with the various local agencies. Landscaping is designed and implemented by Sages and Company, a Florida-based landscaper with over 25 years of experience in high-end residential estates and condominiums, specializing in landscape “themes” that complement a project’s architectural details. Construction by locally based JACA TCI Ltd. started in May 2006.

To date, over 70% of the units have been sold, many to savvy investors who anticipate an excellent return, not only due to property appreciation, but also to a well-managed rental property. But besides the financial incentives, an investment in Windsong is also an investment in your well-being: sun, sea, sand and a Windsong lifestyle will see to that!
