#Providenciales, June 29, 2019 – Turks and Caicos – We are pleased to announce ROCK HOUSE has broken ground and construction has commenced on the majestic 14-acre waterfront site with the official Groundbreaking Event taking place last weekend. Government officials and the community showed up to support Grace Bay Resorts and watched as CEO & Developer Mark Durliat gave a heartfelt speech to his faithful hospitality team, many of whom have worked with Grace Bay Resorts for decades.
ROCK HOUSE is the latest development from acclaimed Grace Bay Resorts. Unlike any resort seen before in the Turks & Caicos, this unique development and residential vision is located on the north coast of Providenciales, with 600 feet of frontage and peaks soaring 95 feet above sea level. Taking inspiration from the allure and sophistication of European hotels along the Mediterranean coast, South of France and remote isle of Capri, ROCK HOUSE has committed the same detailed attention to its method of construction, as it has to the design phase of its refined resort experience. Ensuring native trees, shrubs, orchids and succulents will be incorporated into the completed resort by preserving indigenous vegetation that has occupied the lush and varied landscape for hundreds of years.
“Reusing these natural materials and landscape from this historic site remains true to the Rock House spirit. We seek to ensure a very low environmental impact, with deep sustainability and a sense that this special resort property has been here for years.” – Mark Durliat, CEO & Developer, Grace Bay Resorts.
Only a scarce number of cottages and studios remain available.
Substantial completion is targeted for the first half of 2021.
