JW Marriott Residences Clearwater Beach, Florida

Gulf Coast Beachfront Condo Hotel Units

May 19, 2017

Hello. Joel Greene here from Condo Hotel Center.

I have a story for you today about a Florida bottlenose dolphin named Winter. You might have even heard about her as she’s become a bit of a celebrity.

When Winter was about two months old, she was found by a fishermen in a lagoon. She was entangled in a crab trap line with the trap still attached. The line cut off circulation to her tail.

After she was cut free, she was transported to Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Clearwater, Florida for treatment of her extensive injuries. Unfortunately, despite exhaustive efforts, her tail deteriorated and could not be saved. Without it, she had difficulty swimming and her future was uncertain. But this is not a sad story.

As word got out about the disabled dolphin, Kevin Carroll, a dolphin lover and maker of prosthetic limbs for people, offered to work with the aquarium’s marine biologists to design the world’s first prosthetic tail for a dolphin.

Over the course of several months, they developed a working tail, and Winter learned how to swim with the prosthetic. Today, Winter is a happy, healthy dolphin at the Clearwater Aquarium.So, what does all this have to do with real estate? Winter, the world’s first dolphin to have a prosthetic tail, can be seen at the Clearwater Marina Aquarium, which is just up the road from today’s featured property.

Gulf Coast’s Newest Hotel

JW Marriott Residences Clearwater Beach will be a luxurious, 15-story beachfront condo hotel overlooking the beach and Gulf of Mexico. While Marriott is a well-known, well-respected name in the hospitality industry, this will be the first JW Marriott Residences property in the United States and the Gulf Coast’s newest luxury hotel.

The hotel portion of the property will include 166 rooms. The Residences will comprise 36 luxury condo hotel units available for individual ownership. Owners will be able to use their unit when they’d like and place it in the optional rental program when they’re not there.

JW Marriott Residences will have 166 hotel rooms and only 36 condo hotel units.

Beautiful Clearwater, Florida

Clearwater is located in Florida’s Tampa Bay area known for its sunny weather and pristine Gulf Coast beaches. Clearwater Beach, on a barrier island, is a three-mile stretch of white sand backed by hotels and restaurants.

When you’re not working on your tan or swimming in the Gulf, you can go for a stroll on the Beach Walk, a $30-million redevelopment initiative. It has a broad, winding promenade lushly landscaped and surrounded by resorts, beautiful white sand, entertainment and artwork.
Other nearby attractions include:
  • Clearwater Marine Aquarium (say “hi” to Winter)
  • Pier 60 – artisans, crafters and street performers
  • Phillies spring training – Spectrum Field, Clearwater
  • New York Yankees spring training – Steinbrenner Field, Tampa
  • Award-winning Salvador Dali Museum – St. Petersburg

Groundbreaking on the JW Marriott Residences is expected in Sept. 2017.

Construction Status & Living Restrictions

Construction on JW Marriott Residences is expected to begin in September 2017 and to be complete approximately 22 months later, summer 2019.

Condo hotel owners will have the option of participating in the rental program.

As an owner in the rental program, your residence will be available to you for up to 30 consecutive days and a maximum of 60 days per year.  It will be rented for you when not in use and you’ll receive a portion of the income it generates.

Owners not participating in the rental program are able to reside 30 days consecutively. Then they must leave for one full day before returning for the next 30 consecutive days.

JW Marriott will have a private beach with alcohol and food service available.

Prices Start at $550,000

The condo hotel units are located on the 11th-15th floors, giving them unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico and magnificent sunsets. The units have from one to three bedrooms and range in size from 788 square feet to 1,395 square feet.

Prices range from $550,000 to $1,325,000, plus furniture packages, which range from $15,000 to $35,000. With only 36 residences in the building – the rest are Marriott hotel rooms – I don’t expect these units to last long. Want to know more? Just request my JW Marriott Residences data sheet below.

In the beginning of this Property Alert I told you about Winter, the injured dolphin that was saved by the Clearwater Aquarium and now has learned to swim with the world’s first dolphin prosthetic tail. The story of Winter’s rescue and rehabilitation was so moving that Warner Brothers and Alcon Entertainment produced a movie about it in 2011.

Winter played herself in Dolphin Tale and co-starred with Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, Harry Connick, Jr., Kris Kristofferson and others. The movie was filmed at the Clearwater Aquarium and was so successful that a sequel, Dolphin Tale 2, was released in 2014.

Again, you can visit Winter and see other marine life at the Clearwater Aquarium, when you stay at the JW Marriott.

To all the fabulous moms who read my Property Alerts, I hope you enjoyed a happy Mother’s Day. My girls, Haley and Lindsay, and I made sure Jackie felt special.

As always, thank you for your interest in the properties we offer. If I can help you find that Florida home of your dreams or investment property here in the U.S. or abroad, I hope you’ll give me a call.

Have a sunny day!
