For three years now residents of Kalea Bay have been able to enjoy their community’s incredible clubhouse and the many amazing amenities that surround it.
“I can’t begin to tell you the number of compliments we’ve received on our amenities over the years,” said Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. “And our onsite amenities have really helped propel our sales effort which recently set a 30-day, 23-sales record.
It all begins with the 88,000-square-foot main amenity area which is located on the north side of the large lake at the community’s entrance. It features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a children’s pool, plus expansive pool decks, an open-air bar, a fitness center, a lakeside fire pit, kid’s game room and event lawn.
All three pools overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy.
If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isn’t on a resident’s schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is.
“We have the perfect place for all three,” said Lodge. “Our restaurants serve incredible meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be.”
Two restaurants serve residents of Kalea Bay. The Driftwood Café offers a more casual fare while The Salt and Oak restaurant is designed for an elegant evening dining experience and includes such features as a private dining room, a banquet room and wine tasting room – among others.
For those residents who have young children or grandchildren, the clubhouse will delight one and all with a teen lounge, complete with virtual reality and PS4 games, foosball, WiFi and multiple TVs, and a kid’s game room with child-size furniture, books, chalkboard and TVs.
Adjacent to the clubhouse lies the tennis pavilion with four Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as eight pickleball courts. Guest suites for overnight guests are also located near the clubhouse.
While the current state-of-the-art fitness center features Peloton bicycles, assorted strength machines, free weights and stretch area, Lodge recently announced that the community’s amenities will be expanded to include a Wellness Center.
“We have finalized our designs for our 14,000 square foot Wellness Center,” Lodge noted. “Dedicated to the health and well-being of our residents, the Wellness Center is expected to include a dedicated yoga studio, sauna, spin room and Pilates. The spa will include treatment rooms while locker facilities and a large cardio and free weight area are also planned.”
According to Lodge, the construction of the Wellness Center is anticipated to begin in early 2021 and take between 12 to 16 months to complete.
The amazing amenities offered at Kalea Bay are only part of the formula for the high-rise community’s incredible success. The beautifully designed residences, with open floor plans and luxurious features, is another.
“For a 30 day period shared between December and early January, we sold a record-breaking 23 luxury high-rise residences at Kalea Bay for a total sales volume of more than $50 million,” said Lodge. “What makes this record-breaking milestone even more incredible is that it took place during the holiday period, which is often a very slow time for real estate sales.”
Although a few residences remain in the community’s second tower and are available for immediate occupancy, the majority of the 23 sales occurred in Tower 300 at Kalea Bay, which is under construction and due to be completed in October of 2022.
The recent sales boom pushed the community’s third tower over the 50 percent sold mark.
Like its two predecessors, Tower 300 will feature 120 luxury residences. Specifically, it’s 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Rooftop amenities are also similar to those found in Tower 100 and 200 including a rooftop pool, open-air fitness center and a sky lounge.
“And the views of the Gulf of Mexico from the rooftop are simply incredible,” Lodge noted. “There’s nothing like it in Southwest Florida.”
Six floor plans are available in Tower 300 ranging between three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-baths to four-bedroom/four-and-a-half-baths. The size of the residences ranges from 3,722 to 3,922 total square feet.
Each floor plan, following an open-concept design, allows the living, dining and kitchen areas to spill out onto an expansive lanai, creating a true outdoor living room.
Kitchens include such standard features that most consider upgrades such as luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops and a large island, as well as SubZero and Wolf appliances.
The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and a glass-enclosed shower.
Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that retract across the entire living area bringing the outdoors in. The large lanais are constructed with transparent glass rails for uninterrupted views of the gulf. Smart home ready and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features.
Residences in Tower 300 are currently priced from $1.5 million.
