The Coastal Collection, a joint partnership between Build America, LLC, and Barkett Realty, held a groundbreaking ceremony on September 30th,on their construction of five premium, luxury waterfront townhomes in Treasure Island. The event was orchestrated by the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce and moderated by their CEO, Robin Miller. Attendees included Treasure Island Mayor Tyler Payne and other local dignitaries.

Located one block from the sandy beaches of Treasure Island, each unit of The Coastal Collection includes a private dock with direct access to deep-water boating and a rooftop terrace. The three-story units feature three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a private elevator, and a chef’s dream kitchen.

“The demand for luxury residential living along the beach communities has been incredible and we’re ecstatic to get started on this project,” said Qemal Hasanbelli of Build America, LLC. He added, “The quality of this project is what really stands out—from the elegant design to the block construction, energy efficiencies to the magnificent views it offers, even structurally engineering the rooftop terraces to be able to hold hot tubs.”

The Coastal Collection offers a unique opportunity to own a high-end, semi-custom home combined with the functional, low-maintenance lifestyle of a townhome. The development currently has two available units remaining. Construction on the project is expected to be completed in 2022.

“This area continues to evolve and elevate its housing options as well as hospitality and retail,” said John Barkett, owner of Barkett Realty. To attend to the growing demand for luxury residential real estate along the coastal neighborhoods in Southern Pinellas County, Barkett’s boutique real estate firm is opening a sales office on St. Pete Beach this fall. “The Coastal Collection is the epitome of upscale, coastal living that we will be offering to our clients,” he added.

Steps away from renowned resorts, fine dining, and white sand beaches, The Coastal Collection: Treasure Island is located at 11793-11801 1st Ave East, Treasure Island, FL 33706.
