New developments launching around the world.

About: This community of just 117 options for ownership is for ocean lovers. Amenities include a private beach club that features three pools and a swim-up bar; a wellness center with gym and two tennis courts; equipment for kayaking, sailing, and snorkeling; a Nut House for kids with games and scavenger hunts; and a Marina Village with restaurant and bar, a games room, a boutique, and 93 berths with accommodations for a yacht of up to 130 feet. Timeline: Ground broke in 2008. Post Hurricane Irma, which directly hit the community for 4-5 hours with 200mph winds, there was minimal structural damage due to the high quality of construction and engineering. The property continues to grow, with 40 properties sold and 37 homes set for completion in the next 18 months. The Marina Village will also expand with a green space park, watersports deck, art gallery, and additional retail. Pricing: Lots from $2.95M
