Costa Blanca, the highly anticipated oceanfront development by Group Metro, one of the largest real estate development corporations in the Dominican Republic, has announced expansion plans to their billion dollar project. The project will now include a Chris Evert Tennis Center to compliment the championship Greg Norman Signature Golf Course. In addition, the development includes a world class marina, a marina village, oceanfront condominiums, villas, a private beach and the exclusive founders club. Group Metro has already achieved tremendous success with the launching of its founders club, which produced almost US$100 million in sales on the first day of ground breaking.
The facilities will house a professional tennis center encompassed by eight tennis courts, and one tournament stadium-style court, as well as pro-shop. Evert explains why she chose Costa Blanca and Group Metro, “Costa Blanca is going to be a wonderful destination in the Dominican Republic. I look forward to working with the Development team of Group Metro to help facilitate not only a world class golfing facility, but my first Tennis Center in the Caribbean that will feature superior facilities but also unparalleled service for our members and guests.”
Due to the continued demand at Costa Blanca, the developers are now enhancing the master plan, designed by EDSA, to offer a new selection of additional products. The updated plan now presents buyers with uniquely diverse selection of residences, including half-acre private estate lots for luxury homes of up to 15,000 square feet (1,400 m2). From modern, sleek condos and private villas to a home directly on the Caribbean sea, Costa Blanca will provide an assortment of sizes and styles to suit every taste.
Juan Dolio, only thirty minutes from the country’s capital, has recently seen an influx of activity with over 10 new projects this year. The region is quickly becoming the Caribbean’s latest “hot spot” and Costa Blanca is leading the pack as the area’s most prestigious property.
Group Metro has established a formidable international reputation through-out its four decades of experience in both real estate and transportation. From their landmark property, Metro Country Club, to their oceanfront condominium developments of Costa del Sol, Marbella and Las Olas, Group Metro has become the definitive business for real estate and tourism in the Dominican Republic. Lead by their visionary CEO, Dr. Luis Jose Asilis, the company has played an integral role in putting the Dominican Republic on the map as a top Caribbean destination. Group Metro will be one of the first developers in the Dominican Republic to ever provide internal financing to buyers.
Here is what the tennis center actually looks like in 2017.
I love the qualifier: due to the continued demand at Costa Blanca, the developers are now enhancing the master plan, designed by EDSA, to offer a new selection of additional products. Those products are apparently old bits of concrete, tall grass an inexplicable blue-window-glass-1970’s-style clubhut (nobody with sense would consider this a clubhouse…clubhut, clubhovel).
I like to think that this broken street or cart path must lead to the tennis center.
