JMC Communities is transforming a section of the Belleview Biltmore Hotel into the centerpiece of its newest development, Belleview Place in Belleair, featuring mid-rise condominium residences and carriage homes and unique, luxurious amenities
Belleair, Fla. (August 18) – The historic Belleview Biltmore Hotel’s celebrated elegance and prestige, along with a 38,000-square-foot section of the original hotel, will be preserved and set the tone for JMC Communities’ newest development, Belleview Place in Belleair, Florida. Flanked by the Belleair Country Club, Belleview Place’s sales center opened in June and started sales of the first mid-rise building, the Allamanda, which is now 50 percent sold. The community will feature a total of 28 carriage homes and 104 mid-rise condominiums. Each of the four condominium buildings, six-stories over two floors of parking, will feature 26 spacious residences ranging from 1,724 to 3,676 square feet with two or three bedrooms. Two-story carriage homes will offer 2,153 to 3,274 square feet of living space and will include elevators and two-car garages. Pre-construction pricing starts in the mid-$600,000s and the initiation fee for a golf and social membership at the Belleair Golf & Country Club will be included. Groundbreaking is anticipated in October and completion of the first building is expected within 16 months.
“The penthouses and larger corner residences were the first ones that sold and we have already started a waiting list for the next building,” stated Belleview Place Sales Director Claudia Emery. “Our buyers love our convenient location and the fact that we offer a combination of new construction residences with all the benefits of an established country club lifestyle.” The Belleair Country Club includes two Donald Ross-designed championship golf courses, a full-service restaurant and bar, a resort pool, a full fitness center, a marina and variety of social activities.
Graceful residence features will include high ceilings, gas water heaters and cooktops, quartz or granite counter tops, wood floors and cabinet doors, insulated windows, high-efficiency heating/cooling system, large covered terraces and thoughtful floorplan designs with one or two master suites. Each home will come with a double car garage or dedicated under-building parking spaces. The mid-rise buildings’ garages will be inside the limited-access parking garage.
In addition to access to the Belleair Country Club, Belleview Place will have its own amenity center at the signature Belleview Inn which will feature 35 hotel guest rooms, a resort-style pool, a fitness center and social event spaces as well as a grand lawn for outdoor events. “We are dedicated to reimagining the spirit and ambiance of the original hotel in the Belleview Inn which will regain its status as a social centerpiece for our community,” said JMC CEO J. Michael Cheezem. The Inn will reflect its famous heritage in several historical displays and preserved details such as original stained glass, 118-year-old heart pine planks, fireplaces and grand staircase, as well as a contemporary interpretation of the original Maisie’s Ice Cream Parlor and the Tiffany Room.
“The historic significance of the original hotel is preserved in the Belleview Inn but also in the architectural details and color scheme of our surrounding residences. We’re thrilled with the positive response we have received from the community. Several prospects know us from our other developments including Ovation, Rowland Place and Victoria Place, and quite a few are considering downsizing from single family homes in Belleair and Clearwater. Others want to move away from the crowded beaches to avoid the increasing traffic congestion,” added Cheezem. Belleair Place offers privacy in an unequalled country club lifestyle in an easily accessible location for shopping, dining and beaches.
