VENICE, Fla. — Venice-based J.E. Charlotte Construction Corp. (www.JECharlotte.com), a commercial construction company that offers a full range of construction management services, was recently awarded a contract for the construction of the clubhouse at Watercrest, a new gated community in Venice.
Centrally located at the roundabout at Venice Avenue and Jacaranda Boulevard, Watercrest will feature 294 homes, including attached villa Cottage Homes and detached single-family Grand Villas by WCI Communities. The new 3,146- square-foot British West Indies-style clubhouse will be the centerpiece of the resort-style lifestyle of Watercrest.
The clubhouse will feature a 1,000-square-foot fitness center inclusive of various workout equipment, a beach-entry swimming pool, bocce ball court, outdoor fireplace, restrooms and an outside community area for residents.
“We are excited to work with Jeff and his team at J.E. Charlotte Construction Corp.,” said Alex Hays, development director for Vanguard Land. “Jeff’s reputation within the community is excellent, and his company is highly respected. J. E. Charlotte has significant experience building recreational and country club amenity centers, which sets them apart from other contractors.”
A wide selection of two- to four-bedroom floor plans will be offered, ranging from 1,557 to more than 2,500 square feet. Home prices start from the 200,000s. The community is maintenance free and has no Community Development District (CDD). Slated for completion in April 2017, construction on the clubhouse began in October.
J.E. Charlotte Construction will draw from the company’s extensive expertise on recreational and country club expansions to help with this project. Previously, the commercial construction company has worked on Plantation Golf & Country Club, Sarasota Family YMCA – Welch Family Teen Center, Bradenton Country Club Pro Shop and Cart Barn, Cedar Hammock Golf & Country Club and the Residence Club at Country Club East.
