JW Marriott First Residential Development Comes to Baja, Mexico

By: MP Mexico News Staff

LORETO, Baja California Sur, Mexico, /PRNewswire/ — Drawing on its partners’ long history of successful real estate experience in the U.S. and abroad, Scottsdale-based NG Properties Mexico, LLC has signed an agreement with Marriott International to create the first JW Marriott Residences property in Mexico. Located along the Sea of Cortez, in the 300-year-old town of Loreto, the JW Marriott Residences Loreto (www.liveloreto.com) will encompass more than 800 feet of private beachfront shoreline and offer 201 whole-ownership condominiums. This future LEED Green Building-certified development is slated for first phase completion in 2010 and will be staffed and operated by JW Marriott.

Prospective homeowners of the JW Marriott Residences Loreto will be able to choose from a number of options, including two, three and four-bedroom condominium residences and rooftop penthouses. Prices will range from the mid $700,000s to more than $3 million.

The JW Marriott Residences brand appeals to those who appreciate and value authenticity, unobtrusive personal service and luxurious but unpretentious surroundings. In a 2007 North American hotel guest satisfaction survey conducted by a leading consumer research company, the JW Marriott brand was the second-highest rated in the “Luxury Hotel” category, right behind The Ritz-Carlton, which is also owned by Marriott International. The JW Marriott Residences Loreto property will represent the Mexico launch of the residential offering developed under the JW Marriott luxury brand. This achievement represents the culmination of Marriott International’s residential and hospitality expertise, combined to serve the luxury whole-ownership market.

“We are thrilled to be working with the JW Marriott Residences team on our Loreto project,” said Neil Ginsberg, developer and co-managing partner of the JW Marriott Residences Loreto. “We knew we wanted to design a private residence community in a spectacular beach location and also offer resort-style amenities with a highly personalized level of service for homeowners. With their extensive experience managing Ritz-Carlton Residences worldwide, this relationship was the natural choice for our Loreto project. We know we have the best for our residents with the JW Marriott Residences brand at the helm.”

The JW Marriott Residences Loreto will feature a dramatic two-story lobby with mezzanine lounge, business office, concierge service and a plush 35-seat movie theater with reclining leather chairs. Beach Club amenities will include expansive freeform resort pools with wet and turf sunning terraces, a beachside spa grotto, spectacular swimming beaches and a secluded infinity-edge pool for adults with swim-up bar. Families and children will enjoy a central game pool, dedicated kids pool with waterslides, lazy river float and beach entry, an aquatic center offering small watercraft and snorkeling gear, indoor game room with billiards and video arcade, and an Adventure Center with multi-purpose sports court, climbing boulders and sand playground. Completing the amenity offering is a full-service spa and state-of-the-art fitness center, beachside restaurant, an 18-hole putting course, ample covered parking with the option of private garages, and more. There is also easy access to five neighboring islands whose white sand beaches frame the Bay of Loreto National Marine Park.

“This is an exciting new opportunity to extend the JW Marriott Residences brand,” said Stephen Mudge, Executive Vice President of Mixed-Use and Residential Development for The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company of Marriott International, Inc. “This is an experienced developer and a charming location. Loreto, Mexico has a unique, viable culture and marketplace, and the location, friendly residents and responsible development practices all make it an ideal vacation home destination.”

JW Marriott Residences Loreto will be opening for pre-sales November 2008. Pre-construction prices are available from the mid $700,000s. For more information Call (888) 8-LORETO / (888) 856-7386 (outside North America dial 480-857-9200).
