Laketown Wharf to Undergo $10 Million Renovation

by April 15, 2013 • 6 comments

Looks like they’re trying to breathe some more life into Laketown Wharf.  I have history with this resort and have always thought it was a fantastically interesting place.  The developer certainly went big when it was developed and I’ve always thought it had huge potential.

There are several pools, the condos are large and quite nice and most of them have wonderful views of the gulf.

The renovations include adding new amenities including a grocery store and deli, leasing center, redecorated hotel lobby, conference/meeting rooms, business center, new pool and boardwalk furniture, family zone, owners’ lounge and arcade.  Additional renovations include expanding the deck, adding new fountains and landscaping, opening the lake to the public and more. Plus, area residents and visitors should be on the lookout for Laketown Wharf turtles that will be coming to town soon. The project is expected to be completed by June 2013.

I’m so stinking excited about these projects becoming reality soon. We (the residents) here at Laketown Wharf have been informed about what’s coming our way for sometime now so, to see it actually happening is really exciting. Yeah, the contracting is a bit of a headache but, it’s really worth it. Something tells me Laketown Wharf could be selling big sooner or, later.

Yikes! $10M!? I wonder what the assessment will be for each condo owner?? That will be passed to the tenant.

I wonder if they ever found Jerry “The Deal Maker” Wallace? Last spotted in Belize me thinks…

It would be nice if they could fix the stiff that really needs fixed, like the kids playground, out is full of mildew and cracking, my child got cut on the cracks. The elevators don’t work when the winds blows and the fire alarms going off all the time. Where is the money for that? Laketown really needs to think about fixing the problems before starting new projects..

Better sure you license those dive-in movies, Laketown Wharf! MPLC umbrella license doesn’t cover it, and each individual movie has to be licensed each night. Just a friendly reminder so that our friends at LW don’t end up with huge fines and lawsuits :)
