BOCA RATON, Fla., March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Siemens Group, renowned real estate developer, announces plans to break ground on a new luxury condominium this fall that will change the residential landscape of Boca West Country Club. Akoya, set to be a sanctuary of modern architecture, will boast every conceivable amenity and white-glove services within the gates of the #1 Private Residential Country Club in the Country. Slated to open fall 2015, Akoya has been thoughtfully designed by GarciaStromberg, famed architects of One Thousand Ocean, and award-winning Interiors by Steven G., known worldwide for fashionable metropolitan style. Akoya will be the first new residential development in Boca West Country Club in more than two decades. Pricing ranges from $1.2 million to more than $2 million.
"Akoya is truly a rare opportunity without precedent," says Richard Siemens, president and CEO of Siemens Group. "Akoya offers a high-style, highly serviced luxury lifestyle all within a resort-style community that will provide owners with the highest quality living experience possible."
For 40 years, Richard Siemens and family have left their mark on the South Florida real estate industry through such innovative developments as the Polo Club Boca Raton, Gleneagles Country Club, and Harbour's Edge. And now, for the first time in area history, a private country club is inviting a developer to build a luxury high-rise condominium within its community. Siemens Group plans to break the mold once again with the much-anticipated Akoya.
"It's been a long time since any new developments have been built in Boca West, and Akoya is truly a one of a kind building for this area," Siemens says. "We know discerning homebuyers will appreciate the word-class amenities and services that Akoya will offer. We're creating a private sanctuary for a privileged few who demand the very best."
Akoya residents will enjoy the resort-style amenities and more than 300,000 square feet of award-winning club facilities Boca West is renowned for, including 31 Har-Tru tennis courts; six distinguished restaurants; an expansive aquatic and fitness center; a world-class 38,000-square-foot European-inspired spa; and four championship golf courses designed by legends Arnold Palmer, Pete Dye, and Jim Fazio.
Akoya will comprise nine stories, 120 private residences, three dramatic porte-cochere arrival courts, a resort-style swimming pool with tropical sun deck and intimate lounging area, a 24-hour fitness center with state-of-the-art training equipment, men's and women's card rooms, a lavish Grand Room and more. Residences, from two to three bedrooms with den and offices ranging from 2,676 to 4,780 square feet, will feature secured elevators opening into the foyer of each residence, expansive terraces creating an outdoor environment that takes full advantage of South Florida living, designer kitchens, spacious master suites and floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Truly a full-service building, Akoya's professional valet, front desk staff and dedicated concierge will deliver white-glove service catering to residents' every need. A state-of-the-art security system will ensure peace of mind for residents 24/7.
Akoya will be perfectly situated within walking distance of the 300,000 square feet of club facilities and resort-style amenities Boca West has to offer—not to mention its convenient location in Boca Raton, with easy access to shopping, dining, entertainment, all major highways and the private airport.
On Tuesday, April 1, Akoya will co-sponsor "The Concert for the Children," starring the legendary Diana Ross. The concert will take place at Boca West Country Club in the Akoya Amphitheater.
The Akoya Sales Gallery is located in the Boca West Sports Complex, 20583 Boca West Drive, Boca Raton. For more information, visit www.akoyabocawest.com or call 561-362-2719.
