Lucas Fox International Properties, the Barcelona-based luxury real estate specialist has today announced their exclusive appointment to manage the marketing and sales of a luxury residential marina development in Ibiza, designed by world-renowned French architect, Jean Nouvel.
The development comprises two buildings, both of which will be completed in the summer 2012. The first, Las Boas de Ibiza, offers 179 beautiful apartments, each with its own unique design and boasting huge terraces with panoramic views of the Mediterranean, Ibiza Old Town and the island of Formentera. The second, Patio Blanco, offers 107 properties, all with terraces and clean lines based on a traditional Ibiza building, skilfully executed to produce light filled apartments that appear to float on an island of water.
In both buildings, Jean Nouvel’s award winning contemporary architecture is complemented by the stunning visual impact of gardens (designed by eminent botanist Patrick Blanc) and water features, the intention of which is to blur the line between nature and the artificial. The terraces of the apartments also showcase the vibrant work of renowned painter, Alain Bony. The apartments range from a spacious 65m2 for a one-bedroom apartment to a huge 300m2 for a penthouse and all feature the highest quality fixtures and fittings.
This exclusive development is perfectly located on the Paseo Juan Carlos, just metres away from the famous Marina Botafoch. It offers great access to Ibiza’s best boutique shops, restaurants and nightlife, including Pacha nightclub.
Alex Vaughan, Director of Lucas Fox stated, “We are very excited to have been given the opportunity to work on the marketing and sales of Life Marina Ibiza. In my opinion this is the most interesting and exclusive development currently for sale in the Mediterranean and an excellent long-term investment opportunity. The collaboration of the renowned Jean Nouvel with talented designers has resulted in luxurious, exceptional apartments, which still very much express the creative, hedonistic side of Ibiza. Each individual property is like a piece of art.”
“We are also very optimistic that the unique qualities of this development and the healthy Ibiza property market will allow us to quickly sell the remaining units” he continued, “Our Ibiza operation has been gaining strength and, as has been shown in our latest market report, the higher end of the market in Ibiza remained stable throughout 2011 and there appears to be ever increasing interest in luxury properties across the island. We feel very confident we can transfer our success with foreign investor clients on Ibiza to the Life Marina project.”
