Schmid Construction, a Clermont-based company, will build Bella Collina's planned condominium-hotel Siena Towers. Potential sub-contractors may bid on the project. The deadline is 2 p.m. Oct. 23.
Work available for bid includes: Site, Landscape, Retaining Wall, Fence, Concrete, Masonry, Hollow Core Planks, Stone, Structural Steel, Roofing, Millwork, Doors & Hardware, Windows/Storefront, Drywall/Metal Framing, Stucco, Flooring, Paint, Elevator, Fire Sprinkler, Plumbing, HVAC, and Electrical, Schmid said.
Bella Collina was a victim of the real estate crash but has rebounded in the past year. Sixteen new homes, averaging $2 million each, are under construction in the community, said Greene
All that traffic has created demand for an ultra-luxe lodging space for golfers, wedding guests, and parents of the international boarding students at the nearby Monteverde Academy, Greene said.
"We have actually had to turn away some of these weddings that were a couple $100,000 in costs," because there is no on-site hotel, Greene told GrowthSpotter.
Build-out is expected to take 16 months.
The hotel will consist of two seven-story towers overlooking Lake Sienna, with 100 units total. Every unit in the hotel will have either two bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths or three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths.
The units will be financed by the developer and sold as condominiums, GrowthSpotter first reported on Aug. 21. Greene said negotiations are underway with a few select high-end hotel chains to brand and handle a reservation system that will lease the units out for owners when they are not using them.
