New Development

Living The Leeward Lifestyle

By Anne-Marie Kelly

The nautical definition of the word “leeward,” meaning the side to which the wind is blowing, captures only a fraction of the essence of Providenciales’ own Leeward Community.

This gated, upscale, marina-based community on the far northeast tip of the bustling island has seen tremendous growth over the past few years. Future plans are destined to make the development even more attractive with additional amenities.

Leeward is a boating and beach lover’s dream, yet is also close to the Provo Golf and Country Club and many fine restaurants and shops. In addition, located within the community is the highly respected Ashcroft School, making Leeward an ideal environment for families raising children.

Along the protected waters of Leeward Going Through–passageway between Providenciales’ north and south shores–lies Leeward Marina. From this gateway, local and visiting mariners have the most direct access to neighboring islands and cays and a convenient launch for plying the beautiful turquoise waters that encircle the island.

Leeward Marina’s location makes it the obvious departure point for anyone wanting to visit North and Middle Caicos, Parrot Cay, Pine Cay and the miles of deserted beaches associated with the area. There is a well-stocked marine store providing boaters and fisherman with a wide variety of supplies and a number of watersports-based businesses are headquartered at the marina.

Plans are underway to dredge an entirely new marina lagoon in the soon-to-be developed Leeward Gardens. It will be surrounded by a marina village encompassing restaurants and bars, quaint retail shops, additional fishing and watersports operations and several condominium developments. Amenities will be improved with a wider variety of services and provisions for more and larger boats.

Prestigious Properties Ltd., the country’s largest real estate agency, have been exclusive agents for Leeward Limited since 1997. At that time, the inventory of vacant land in the upscale Columbus Haven (canal waterfront) and Pelican Beach (inland lots) subdivisions was a combined 120 lots. Of these, 118 lots have sold and more than 20 new homes have been constructed, with plans for numerous others to be built within the next few years. A brief tour shows that the community has some of the most elegant homes and luxurious surroundings that Provo has to offer.

The strong sales activity in the Columbus Haven and Pelican Beach districts has brought forward the release of lots for pre-construction sales in the eastern canal development of Leeward Gardens. And once again, sales activity is astonishing. In only six weeks, 14 of the available 56 canal lots in Leeward Gardens have been reserved, pending completion of the construction. These are the last canalfront lots that will be available within Leeward.

An aggressive sales and marketing strategy on the part of Leeward Limited and Prestigious Properties, combined with strong buyer interest in owning within an exclusive and desirable community, explains Leeward’s tremendous success.

Also within Leeward’s protective gates are two specialized developments: Leeward Landing luxury townhomes and The Residences of Leeward single-family homes.

Situated on six acres in a private setting within the Leeward Community and surrounded by colorful tropical landscaping, Leeward Landing boasts the ultimate in island living. Each of ten Caribbean-inspired buildings will house four stylish townhomes. The 1,400 sq. ft., two-story units feature 2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and spacious, open concept living/dining areas opening out to a screened porch–perfect for entertaining. The second floor master bedroom, with his-and-hers closets and ensuite, also has a private screened balcony where you can relax in the evening breeze. Central air conditioning, a pool and lighted tennis court, and many more amenities add up to a lifestyle of luxury and comfort with the convenience of townhome living.
This spectacular property is within walking distance to Leeward’s intimate white sand beaches and is close to all the water activities available at Leeward Marina.

Pre-construction pricing for the first four units ranges from $269,990 to $274,990. A 10% deposit, combined with a 10% fixed rate mortgage for a two year term provided by Belize Bank (subject to standard bank approvals), make this a very attractive investment. Cash offers will receive a substantial discount when purchasing in the early stages of this development.

In a joint venture between Sundance Homes Ltd. and Johnston International Ltd., building and civil engineering contractors, construction for Leeward Landing commenced in February, 2001. Johnston has been the contractor for some of the largest and most successful projects in the Islands and throughout the Caribbean.
With the Leeward Landing luxury townhomes destined to become one of the most sought-after addresses on Provo for on-island professionals and offshore investors alike, it is anticipated that this new product offering will significantly expand the market within Leeward.
