Remediation Begins on Yacht Harbor Condominium in Coconut Grove

June 24, 2013

Coconut Grove, FL – Yacht Harbor Condominium, is located at 2901 South Bayshore Drive, Coconut Grove. Built in 1975, it continues to be one of most desirable condominiums in the area. The balconies are the biggest in town, and units tend to be larger compared to other condos in Coconut Grove. The building is due for its 40-year certification, which required renovation of the elevators, balconies and recreational deck. Remediation has begun and is being managed by Development Service Solutions. DSS is working with KW Property Management & Consulting, The Board of Directors; Glazing Consultants International- the project engineers, remediators and the product manufacturer to optimize the plans and specifications. A bid package consisting of two contracts, rather than one has been implemented. This approach has saved the Association over $200,000 in duplicated markups. Total savings for the project is approximately $1,000,000. The project will take a year to complete.
