We are so excited to strategically position this unique property to reach the perfect buyer who will contribute to the spirit and growth of Clearwater Beach.

Engel & Völkers today announced Kelly Montgomery-Kepler, License Partner of Engel & Völkers Belleair and advisor, Sylvia Tzekas have obtained the co-listing of one of the last vacant, buildable lots on Clearwater Beach. Listed at $26,900,000, 551 Gulf Boulevard is situated at the base of the Sand Key Bridge and offers the opportunity to develop 3.2 acres into the next destination resort, condominium or restaurant.

“My husband and his family proudly served the community with their restaurant for nearly three decades,” said Tzekas. The property is ready for its next chapter. I believe this is an incredible opportunity for a discerning investor to build a destination resort on the number one beach in America,” said Tzekas. “The white sugar sands and picturesque sunsets offer absolute tranquility.”

The property was once home to the iconic Fisherman's Wharf restaurant, opened by Dalip Tzekas, an Albanian-immigrant, in 1963. Owned and operated by the family of eight, the Fisherman's Wharf served the community for 27 years. The property has also been leased to Leverock's Great Seafood, Shells Seafood Restaurant, and Five Five One. Known for its infamous and rare basement, the building was recently demolished in April 2020, leaving the property bare and ready for its next chapter.

“We are so excited to strategically position this unique property to reach the perfect buyer who will contribute to the spirit and growth of Clearwater Beach,” said Montgomery-Kepler.
