GROUND FLOOR—SITE PLAN
The La Vista building site rests adjacent to Perdido Key State Park which guarantees no future development will obstruct the magnificent views to the west and south west. On the Gulf side, La Vista boasts 185 feet of pristine white sand beachfront. The location is truly one of La Vista’s greatest amenities.
Residents will enjoy a secure maintenance free environment. Security for residence owners is a high priority, therefore, we will utilize the most advance systems available at the time of construction. The road side entrance to the project will be secured with a coded lift gate system. The buildings front entrance and dune crossover gates will be security coded plus the 2 high speed elevators will be individually coded for owner access to their individual floor.
Parking was another high priority for the design team and due to environmental regulations has become an issue for developments in the area. However, the developer and design team have been able to find a working solution for this issue and La Vista will have covered Parking for 50 autos with 2 spaces reserved for each residence. This is accomplished by utilizing an auto “lift” System. City Lift two level Puzzle System. La Vista will be the first residential condo project in the area to bring this type of parking system to the local market. The puzzle system is City Lifts most popular mechanical parking solution. This semi-automated stacker allows each space to be independently accessed and without the need for an attendant. Each Residence will be assigned 2 spaces, a pre-programed key fob for remote access to store and retrieve their auto (33 second average retrieval time). This also adds another layer of security for owners and their guest.
Amenities on the ground floor include:
- The secured ground level dune cross over allows for easy access to the beach.
- Security Features: Coded Lift Gate at Road Entrance. Secure Lobby Entrance, Coded Elevator Access, Coded Gates at dune crossover
- Covered Parking for 50 Autos: City Lift’s Two Level Puzzle Parking Pod Systems will accommodate up to 50 vehicles. *visit: CIty Lift Puzzle Parking Info
