The $3.5 billion Baha Mar Resort & Casino at Cable Beach is scheduled to open at the end of this year. Baha Mar will feature the largest casino in the Caribbean, a Jack Nicklaus golf course and four hotel towers including the Mondrian, Rosewood, Grand Hyatt and the Baha Mar. Each tower will have a number of condo units available for sale with prices starting at $1.2M. We expect that the resort, which will have 2,500 rooms, will attract wealthy clientele from all over the globe. This project is going to have a huge economic impact, and we expect that it will significantly drive up real estate prices, particularly on the western side of Nassau.
