Underneath the Mexican Moonlight
Take a virtual stroll through Icon Vallarta, a luxury resort style beachfront high rise condominium project in Puerto Vallarta. Scheduled to open Winter 2009, this project was put together by real estate developers, The Related Group. While the views are breathtaking, the contemporary architecture by Arquitectonica and interior design by Yoo by Phillipe Starck steals the show.
Public spaces feature massively scaled vases, doorways, windows and columns with intimate seating areas designed to encourage mingling. And of course, no Phillipe Starck design is complete without his Louis Ghost Chair, Soft Egg Chair, Emeco Icon Chair, or Bubble Sofa & Chair. Private residences include 336 one to three bedroom units, 3 penthouses with
private rooftops, and 7 two-story, two bedroom
villas, complete with private roof top terraces
and private pools.
The condominium amenities include a 400 foot infinity edge pool, on-site restaurant, a 20 seat theatre, ocean front gym & spa, a full service beach bar, juice bar and membership to the "private" Aqua Club and access to a private golf course. Prices range from $775,000 to $1.4 million. I'm wondering how much the monthly HOA dues are and if the H1N1 scare is affecting sales...
