The View at the Bay

The View at Brandywine Bay
by Richard Finnegan, Roger Downing & Partner

Where you choose to live in Tortola is all about the view. The View Apartments at Brandywine Bay is a contemporary oceanfront residential and commercial property on the last sand beach on Tortola’s south shore.

The View was designed by architect Richard Finnegan of RDP Architects & Engineers, well known for the recent modern, iconic building in orange and black—Commerce House—in the heart of Road Town. The design concept was to provide contemporary spaces using durable and safe construction methods with convenient access to work and leisure.
Tropical landscaping (watered from collected grey water) greets residents with shade and fragrance as they walk through covered, secure entryways into a clean, modern building lobby and elevator. A French café/boutique at street level has steaming espresso and fresh croissants, with outdoor seating where residents can enjoy the breeze and listen to the sea just steps away. Living space is all on one floor with elevator service to all floors, so stairs only become an option for those looking to stay in shape. Floor-to-ceiling operable glass doors and windows are oriented to the trade winds for natural passive cooling and to take advantage of the spectacular views of the beach and channel beyond. Solar power-equipped air conditioning systems, combined with insulated glass, louvers and the nearby beach take care of hotter summer days and those hefty electrical bills for mechanical cooling systems.
The open-concept plan incorporates living, dining and kitchen areas into one great room with adjacent entertainment-sized decks overlooking the white sand beach of Brandywine Bay. Gourmet kitchens feature maple cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances including dishwashers and washer and dryer units. Bedrooms are open plan with walk-in closets and spa-inspired bathrooms that have stall showers, granite countertops and soaker tubs. Interior décor furnishing packages that complement the modern interiors will be available thru RDP’s interior designer.

The steel and concrete structure with hurricane glass, water storage cisterns, sewage treatment plant and back up generator protects its occupants from storms, earthquakes and interruptions of water, sewage and power that occur all too often on Tortola. With floor levels starting at 30’ above sea level, the building protects against problems with flooding or storm ocean surges.
Public transportation in Tortola is limited, and many currently available residences lack sufficient parking. Onsite, paved parking is designed with an average of two spaces per unit with additional guest and commercial parking. The location is only five minutes to Road Town, one minute to HLSCC Community College, one minute to Brandywine Bay Restaurant and ten steps to the beach.
The View at Brandywine Bay offers a very appealing lifestyle with contemporary living spaces, adequate parking, café and boutique, adjacent white sand beach for walking, swimming and bbqs combined with a close proximity to town, the college and fine dining.
