A Gulf front condo is being developed with a plan to break ground in 2014. It will be the first of its kind, since the last development 6 years ago. The 1900 98 project plans for a 12 story, 16 unit construction that will be listed under the Destin Real Estate Company. The project was designed by Chancey Design Partnership through a development order originally issued in 2007.
What’s Being Built and Where?
The project, called the 1900 98, will consist of 12 stories of luxury condominiums. There will be 14 single story residences and a pair of two story penthouses. Each unit will come with wide balconies. Expect clean lines, sophistication, and floor-to-ceiling windows that will highlight the dramatic Gulf views, especially from penthouse living rooms. The location will be east of the Black Porch Restaurant and Signature Beach.
Why is 1900 98 Special?
Destin Real Estate representatives are calling this a major project that will have a dynamic impact on the area. The project area is currently filled with run down townhouses, which will be torn down before the end of the year — and marking the beginning of 1900 98’s construction.
This project is another encouraging sign that the local area is finally showing recovery. The recession had hit the area hard, leaving many homes empty. Local business suffered financially. The developers of 1900 98 see the new condos as a boom to the community and a strong step in Destin’s “rebuilding.”
Changes in the real estate market delayed the project, but they also allowed for changes in the original design, which now incorporates features of the latest luxury condominiums.
What will the 1900 98 Condos Feature?
Influenced by European designs, there will be 14 single story, 3 bedroom/3 bathroom condos and two 4 bedroom/4 bathroom 2-story penthouses. Residents will be able to go up to the roof and enjoy the pool, a hot tub, and fire pit. There will also be a state of the art fitness center with all the latest equipment and amenities. There will be panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico from most points of the building.
Destin Real Estate boasts the entire construction will have a timeless design that’s never been seen in Northwest Florida. Current plans for interior designs include Pendini Italy custom cabinetry, marble and stone counters by Cabria, porcelain limestone tiling, and Thermador kitchen appliances. There will be two levels of parking beneath the building, a gated entry, as well as temperature controlled elevators and lobby. The first floor’s 12-foot deep balcony will come with a gas grill.
