Legendary Marina Resort at Blue Water Cay will break ground this Summer, and in the spirit of being good neighbours a Town Hall meeting attended by residents who live in close vicinity to the project met with the developers, arranged by their Member of Parliament Hon. JoBeth Coleby-Davis.
Vice-president of Marina Development Rodney Chamberlain and Managing Partner William Pizzorni shared details of the project, the socio-economic and environmental benefits and discussed any concerns. The Legendary Marina Resort at Blue Water Cay development is situated along Yamacraw Lake in the Yamacraw area of Fox Hill and Hanna Roads. For many years, this site has sat undeveloped and in an undesirable state. Clean-up and beautification initiatives are ready to roll out, including removing sunken boats, an automobile, and garbage and installing a culvert to open the ocean to flow into the adjoining marshland. Additional elevation will protect the homes across the way, and to help with noise, the installation of large trees along the northern peninsula is planned. Much of the native trees and vegetation will remain at the site or be transplanted.
“We are happy to say that we have received the Town Planning approval and Certificate of Environmental Clearance and have completed the signing of the Heads of Agreement with the government,” said Chamberlain. “We have been working closely with the Honourable Minister, JoBeth Coleby Davis on this project for a long time to ensure that our project has a positive impact for as many residents as possible. We are honored to be a part of the Elizabeth constituency and intend to be a good neighbor and responsible environmental steward. I welcome this town planning meeting, the first of many.”
Legendary Marina Resort at Blue Water Cay will be the premier destination for boating in The Bahamas, featuring a top-notch facility with personalized service. The marina's plans include a 120-slip wet dock for boats up to 100 feet or greater in length, along with dry storage boat racks. The enclosed dry storage facility, capable of withstanding a Category 5 hurricane, will provide over 700 slips for boats up to 55 feet in length. The $110 million development will also feature luxurious accommodations for overnight guests, including 20 condo units, 22 oceanfront villas, and a 130-room hotel. Waterfront retail and restaurant spaces, a tiki bar with a pool, a general store with essential items, and on-site fuel services ensure convenience and ease.
One of the highlights of the development is a public beach for residents to enjoy. "This is something that the developer and I came up with," said Minister Coleby-Davis, "And it is their gift to the community."
