Palm Cay Opens New Condo Sales Reservations – Reservations for the third phase of condominiums at Palm Cay are brisk following on the heels of a 95% sell-out of the first two phases at the secure oceanfront community with beach, marina, restaurant and clubhouse on Nassau’s southeastern shore. NASSAU, Bahamas -- Reservations for the third phase of Palm Cay’s condominium project, The Anchorage, are brisk following a near sell-out of the development’s first two condo offerings, a spokesperson for the popular oceanfront community on New Providence’s southeastern shore said today.

“The response to our 2- and 3-bedroom condos was incredibly positive. We hit the 95% mark with 19 out of 20 units sold and we believe that augers well for our current offerings in Phase 3,” according to a statement by the developer.

Phase 3 will consist of 12 units, four 2-bedroom units with a study and eight 2-bedroom. Developers are banking on continued acceptance of the condo offerings priced at between $344,000 and $399,000 in a secure community with clubhouse, private oceanfront, pools, 1,200 linear feet of beaches, restaurant, marina, tennis and an active calendar that includes sailing, yoga and jazz or soft live music at the restaurant.

If interest in the latest phase of The Anchorage follows the pattern of the first two phases, appealing to a wide market ranging from young professionals to those facing empty nests or retirement and wanting to downsize, spending less time maintaining and more time enjoying their leisure.

The Anchorage’s offerings include a 1,200 square foot single storey residence and a 1,400 square foot style on two levels. Residences feature 9-foot ceilings, impact-rated windows, granite countertops and top quality finishes.
