After The Spear Group and Braddock Financial purchased the two-acre site in 2012 with plans to develop, we, as the North Beach real estate experts, are thrilled to see their vision come to fruition. The 43 four-story waterfront townhome development, aptly named after the national flower of France in recognition of the neighborhood’s French roots, played host to dozens Monday, March 14 for its grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony.

To date, all the waterfront residences in Phase 1 have been closed and buyers are moving in. Sales for Phase 2 have already begun, as this portion of the project prepares for groundbreaking in the spring of 2016.

Vice President and Broker of Urban Resource Laura Veitia adds:

“The steady sales activity for Phase I at Iris on the Bay shows that this hybrid model of the townhouse which marries the ease of condo living, with the space and surroundings found in single family homes, works in North Beach. Residents are provided with a product that is ready to move in with fresh modern interiors, in an ideal setting typical of what can be found in North Beach. From this location, a family has instant access to Fairway Park, the waterway, and Normandy Village. I predict sales activity to continue swiftly with Phase II as more people discover the quality of life that can be enjoyed in North Beach.”

Iris on the Bay is a gated community that features a waterfront promenade with boat slips, a bay front pool, lush landscaping, and a clean, modern design by award-winning architects Beilinson & Gomez. The creative teams of Michael Wolk Design Associates and TUI Lifestyle designed the interiors of the 2,150 to over 2,500 square-foot townhomes, which come equipped with summer terraces, private elevators and two-car garages. Expansive windows provide natural light and exterior views of Indian Creek waterway, a green city park and an 18-hole golf course. The surroundings for Iris also command attention — picturesque canals, MiMo architecture, an eclectic restaurant scene, weekly farmers’ market, and upgraded community facilities like the Bandshell and tennis courts.

“There are new residents coming into Normandy Isle because of this development; entrepreneurs, realtors and other professionals that’ll undoubtedly infuse the area with new energy,” said Harvey Allon, CEO of Braddock Financial.

We agree, as we’ve witnessed this in North Beach and expect it to continue with the positive attention and City improvements the area is receiving.
