Tampa Bay’s First Energy-Efficient Luxury Homes Break Ground
Community and business leaders gathered along with the teams from Belleair Development Group and Douglas Elliman Development Marketing at 87th Avenue North to celebrate the kickoff of construction for what will become Tampa Bay’s first energy-efficient luxury community. Terraces at 87th is made up of 92 thoughtfully designed multilevel homes perfectly situated in north St. Petersburg. With spacious 3,753 square-foot, three- and four-bedroom floor plans, each three-story home will feature welcoming open-concept layouts, three bathrooms, expansive four-car garages, and private third-story terraces with outdoor summer kitchen and Jacuzzi upgrades.
Belleair Development Group envisioned and designed the first sustainable luxury community, unprecedented in the Tampa Bay market. Each residence is equipped with energy-efficient solar panel capabilities and appointed with top-of-the-line gas appliances and prewiring for a 220V electric vehicle charger. “The Terraces at 87th will truly be a defining community in Tampa Bay,” said Belleair Development Group’s owner, Carlos Yepes. “The Douglas Elliman team and I are excited to welcome future residents as we have been taking the time to design and develop these sustainable luxury homes.” An effervescent enclave, Terraces at 87th includes a collection of luxury resident-only amenities.
With a focus on ease of living both inside and out, residents of the Terraces at 87th will retreat to the resort-style swimming pool surrounded by a sundeck with lush landscaping and spacious cabanas, fire pits, grilling areas, and a fenced-in outdoor dog park for off-leash play. “We applaud Belleair Development’s visionary design for the Terraces at 87th and the firm’s commitment to creating a true luxury residential offering that brings sustainability to the forefront,” said Jay Phillip Parker, CEO of Douglas Elliman Florida and President of Douglas Elliman Development Marketing, Florida.
“We look forward to connecting with buyers as they discover the many reasons to purchase a home in this exclusive and centrally located residential enclave.” Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is the exclusive sales and marketing team for the Terraces at 87th. Known for leading prestigious and market-defining residential projects across Florida and the US, the firm brings distinct expertise to Tampa Bay for this collection of contemporary homes.
