Smith & Associates Real Estate Announces Virage Bayshore is Sold Out

Brisk Demand From Project Start Fueled Successful Sales

Virage Bayshore, a 24-story luxury high-rise tower with a prime South Tampa location on iconic Bayshore Boulevard, announced today that all seventy-one residences have been sold. The condo tower broke ground in the Fall of 2017 and immediately set sales records in the Tampa Bay region for pre-construction buyer demand. Within the first year of coming to the market, 70% of the condos were reserved.

“The Virage brought a new level of luxury to Tampa Bay that buyers were excited about from the moment the project was unveiled. With the perfect mix of luxurious amenities, spacious interiors, and urban living, it is no surprise that sales were so successful,” says Sandi Kerr-Lewis, Realtor, Smith & Associates Real Estate.

Virage has 71 residences, including 61 tower residences priced at $1 million to $2.5 million, and 10 estate and penthouse residences priced at $3 million to $5 million.

Among the premiere features, the top two floors have a single penthouse residence each, with 6,700 square feet of space and 360-degree views of Hillsborough Bay, South Tampa, and downtown. The following four floors are devoted to Estate Residences with just two 4,400-square-foot residences per floor. The Tower Residences range in size from 2,400 square feet to 3,300 square feet.

Every residence has a private elevator entrance, 10-foot ceilings, and access to resort-style amenities such as an infinity-edge pool overlooking Bayshore, state-of-the-art wellness center, pet grooming facilities, and 24-hour staffed reception. Designed by local architect Curts Gaines Hall Jones, all of which have been oriented to maximize views of downtown Tampa and Hillsborough Bay.  

“We are so proud to close-out condo sales and bring this iconic tower to life,” said Jay Tallman, Principal of Ascentia Development Group, which built Virage in partnership with Batson-Cook Development Company, (BCDC). “During such uncertain times, it is very rewarding to come full circle and see the homes serving to create happy memories for their new residents.” 

Bob Glaser,  President, and CEO of Smith & Associates Real Estate said Tampa Bay is experiencing an influx of buyers with interest in luxury properties. “Discerning buyers are discovering Tampa Bay’s appeal for luxury urban living with tremendous value. We have several exciting projects ahead that will surely follow the successful sales trend we received from the Virage.”
