Harvey Hanna & Associates breaks ground on phase 2 at The Residences at Lighthouse Cove in Dewey Beach
With the flick of a dirt-filled shovel and the snip of a ribbon, the developer of an ambitious and upscale condo complex in Dewey Beach marked the halfway point in the project’s construction. The Oct. 7, groundbreaking for the second half of the 27-unit Lighthouse Cove condominium, in the shadow of Dewey’s famed Rusty Rudder nightspot, puts the project on track for a summer 2018 completion, according to a spokesman for developer Harvey Hanna & Associates.
“Today we celebrate a milestone in creating a highly sought-after destination,” said company president Thom Harvey. “We created a great place for our guests to visit and our owners to call home. We’re proud of this transformational project in this great beach town.”
Though crews had already gotten to work on the 100-space concrete parking deck, the groundbreaking officially set in motion the third phase in the four-part project. Harvey said the workload was split this way to avoid construction-related disruptions during the beach town’s busy summer season. The facility will have 27 direct bay-front condos, ranging from one to four bedrooms. List prices will start at $459,000.
Once this next phase is complete, the project will expand to include new bay-front condos, a conference center, parking areas, retail and dining, and professional space. Future amenities will include a rooftop pool and plaza, an expanded public beach and a 400-foot-long public walkway along Rehoboth Bay. Thomas J. Hanna, managing director at Harvey Hanna, said he's seeing the southern end of Dewey Beach – a town with a reputation for visitors who party hard – developing into a more family-friendly environment.
“We’re seeing more baby strollers and dogs than I’ve ever seen in years past, and it’s exciting to watch,” he said. The existing Hyatt-branded property – which includes Hyatt Place hotel rooms on the lower three floors and The Residences condos on the fourth floor – now helps to support Dewey’s off-season economy by attracting winter weddings, events and conferences.
