Pink Beach developers seek extra penthouse

The company redeveloping the Pink Beach property is seeking permission to expand its plans, adding an extra penthouse condominium to the hotel.

According to planning applications submitted on behalf of Canadian-based developer Sardis, the new penthouse would be added to the eastern hotel building, bringing the building up to three storeys in height.

The penthouse would include three bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, a kitchen and dining-room area, and a terrace looking out over South Shore.

The plans also propose to install an elevator and a porte-cochère — a covered entrance that vehicles can drive under — to protect guests from the elements while entering the core hotel building.

Sardis announced in March 2014 that it intended to erect a new 34-room boutique hotel on the South Shore, Smith's, property as part of a $51.5 million redevelopment project.

The hotel itself would be divided into two buildings. While under the original proposal, one of the buildings would be two-storey, both will be three storeys if the changes are approved.

The proposal also included the erection of six guest condominiums, two guest suites, gym and spa facilities, a new beach club, two swimming pools and a private residence.

The construction of the hotel and beach club is part of the second phase of development, in the wake of civil works that are already under way, with the assembly of the spa building and residential units listed as being in the third and fourth phases of development.
