Tampa, FL (PRWEB) January 13, 2005
Beachwalk, the condominium community that recently opened in Tampa, is paying more than lip service to the concept of giving back to the community. The developer, CSC Bayside I Limited Partnership, is donating more than $45,000 to Tampa Bay Watch, a nonprofit stewardship program dedicated to providing habitat restoration and protection activities on behalf of Tampa Bay.
Beachwalk is located on Old Tampa Bay adjacent to Rocky Point and Dana Shores. The resort-style setting overlooks miles of open bay, pristine wetlands, a nature preserve and beautiful courtyards. Part of the communityÂs appeal will be extensive boardwalks to the bay culminating in gazebos providing seating and shade. Because these boardwalks will span across protected plant and animal habitats, Beachwalk enlisted guidance and support from both Tampa Bay Watch and Tampa Bay Estuary Program, a government agency responsible for protecting Tampa Bay, the largest estuary in the state of Florida.
ÂWe know that the people choosing to buy at Beachwalk not only appreciate our exceptional location on the bay, they also care about preserving its delicate ecological balance,Â says Adam Schlesinger, the developer. ÂThatÂs why we are implementing a club for owners who want to actively participate in cleanup, wildlife protection and related environmental activities. We call it BeachwalkÂs B.E.S.T., an acronym for BeachwalkÂs Environmental Stewardship Team.Â
ÂThatÂs also why we are donating a portion from the sale of every residence at Beachwalk, reaching more than $45,000, to Tampa Bay Watch,Â adds Schlesinger. ÂTheir assistance has been invaluable in helping us create a more beautiful community while heightening awareness of the fragile nature of the environment that surrounds us.Â
Peter A. Clark, Executive Director of Tampa Bay Watch, says, ÂThe concept of enhancing environmental awareness as a part of BeachwalkÂs condominium project is commendable. I am particularly pleased that the boardwalk is routed to avoid impacting mangroves, while eliminating invasive species in the process.Â Clark also notes that Âthis is an example of how a well-planned addition can improve the environment while also enhancing enjoyment of the area for residents and friends.Â
Giving back to the community is an integral part of the business philosophy of Ceebraid-Signal Corporation, the developer of Beachwalk. The company, whose principals span three generations, has made significant donations to major charities on behalf of their many other projects. At Audubon Condominium at Feather Sound their affiliation and donation has been with the local Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Within BeachwalkÂs relaxed village setting are cottage-style one and two-bedroom residences. The spacious, designer-appointed floor plans feature private entries, oversized decks, custom crown moldings, ceramic tiled floors, plush carpeted bedrooms, energy-efficient appliances, private garages and more.
BeachwalkÂs three fully furnished models are created by award-winning interior designer Leslie Schlesinger. Her highly praised portfolio of work includes Audubon Condominium at Feather Sound as well as feature stories in Architectural Digest, The New York Times, Haute DÃ©cor and Traditional Home magazines.
Some very special and unusual amenities are part of BeachwalkÂs stylish clubhouse. These include a community wine cellar, virtual golf and a rock-climbing wall. Designed for entertaining and activity, the clubhouse also offers residents a complete fitness center, Cyber CafÃ© with Wi-Fi high-speed internet access, a sun deck featuring a swimming pool with custom waterfall, a club room with a catering kitchen and a casual juice bar.
In addition to the scenic boardwalks, an array of other features will add to the exceptional quality of life at Beachwalk including a private boat dock, 24-hour attended entry gate with remote control access, concierge services and the convenience of a pet walk area.
Beachwalk is located in the heart of the Tampa Bay area just minutes from Clearwater and major business centers, top-flight shopping, The International Mall, fine restaurants, Raymond James Stadium and Tampa International Airport.
ÂProperties like this sell out fast,Â says Don Egnor, sales director at Beachwalk. ÂAnd for good reason. We offer spectacular views, great floor plans, terrific value and amenities rarely found, even in communities selling at twice the price. WeÂve sold over a third of our residences in just over a month and IÂm not surprised. Once people see it, they are eager to call Beachwalk home.Â
