Named after the lookout point where it is being built, the Bluepoint Condos development capitalizes on its phenomenal location. It overcomes the challenges of a compact, steeply sloped hillside with highly efficient land use and a terraced configuration. Thus, it offers an extraordinary panoramic vista to all buyers.

Designed by the multi-award winning architecture firm Paul Raff Studio, Bluepoint is a luxury development with high-end price points. At the same time, it is neither lavish nor grand.

Rather, it utilizes strategic design (site planning, architecture, interior, and landscape) to maximize usability and to provide a powerful sense of living in the landscape. This ecologically effective plan optimizes land use and connects people with nature. It also produces commercially effective means to produce more — for the developers and for the buyers — with less.

One way this is achieved is with Bluepoint’s louvered façades. The louvers give a unique and gracious look to the architecture while marrying the development visually with its natural surroundings. The louvers are configured to provide privacy for all the residences while maintaining floor to ceiling ocean views—one of the great challenges of all such developments. The louvers, as well as the development’s extensive green roofs, also reduce solar heat gain and associated energy consumption by greater than 60%. This reduces both capital costs and operating costs. The associated reduction in carbon footprint is a significant and attractive marketing feature.
