GRENADA, West Indies, Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Prickly Bay Waterside, one of Grenada's newest ultra-luxury, water's edge residential developments, recently garnered the top spots for Best Development and Best Architecture at the 2009 Americas Property Awards, presented in association with The New York Times and KOHLER.
Inspired by the island's active yachting atmosphere and lifestyle, the development boasts a unique architectural design modelled around nautical cues. Thanks to its original design concept and use of high-tech materials, Prickly Bay Waterside has helped redefine the residential market in Grenada and has brought a new contemporary building outlook to the Caribbean.
"We are thrilled to receive these very prestigious awards, and are very proud of our accomplishments in both development and architecture," said Prickly Bay Waterside Sales and Operations Manager Harrison Milborne. "Savvy prospective buyers will recognize the Americas Property Awards' symbol of excellence and appreciate its significance. We are confident that our achievement will bring Grenada into the spotlight for the international property market and serve as positive reinforcement for the destination's growth."
Located on the fashionable Lance-aux-Epines peninsula of Grenada, Prickly Bay Waterside has already inaugurated the first 18 residential units of phase one of the development, which will eventually encompass a total of 78 water's edge residential units of up to 6,179 sq. feet in size. An Olympic-length swimming pool suffused with ten thousand fibre optic points of light and a beachside boardwalk are already being enjoyed by residents, as is a restaurant/pizzeria and Tiki bar. The master plan eventually calls for a luxury boutique hotel to be built on the premises, where residents and their guests will be able to indulge in a state-of-the-art spa, swimming pool and variety of boutiques.
An outstanding example of fresh, exciting architectural design, Prickly Bay Waterside is also one of the first developments in the world to feature ultra-modern materials and technologies usually employed by automotive and aeronautical industries. These include carbon fibre and other composites that adjust well to the salty environments and atmospheric conditions of the Caribbean.
Grenada is an internationally acclaimed destination for yachting and sailing enthusiasts, and is located in the southeast Caribbean Sea. The island offers residents and travellers pristine beaches, world renowned wreck diving, and excellent weather conditions. Daily direct flights to its International Airport are available to and from major gateways such as London, New York, Miami, Toronto and Frankfurt.
