5 Labor Day Happenings for Shores Residents

You know what’s just around the corner? Our residents’ first holiday at Shores! That’s right, summer is winding down and Labor Day weekend starts this Friday, August 31! For the Shores community, that’s pretty exciting stuff because we’ll be smack dab in the middle of the best Labor Day celebration spots. If you’re new to Shores and wondering how you should ring in the holiday, here are a few long-weekend ideas to help you make the most of your Labor Day plans (without having to get in your car!).

1. Celebrate at Shores

Sparkling Community Pool

You live in a community with just about everything at your fingertips, so why not take a mini-vacay right at home! Invite some friends over and hang out by the pool, soak in a Jacuzzi, barbecue some dinner and end the evening with cocktails on the Sky Terrace. Now that’s some worthwhile long-weekend activity.

2. Walk to Mother’s Beach


Just because Summer 2013 is officially over doesn’t mean you can’t hang out by the ocean. Spend the weekend soaking up the rays, kayaking or picnicking with friends. When you live at Shores, the only effort you need to expend on a Labor Day weekend is strolling across the street to Mother’s Beach.

3. Bike to the Park


Here’s a Labor Day idea: hop on your bike and pedal up to a park for the day. If you go to Yvonne B. Burke Park (about 1.7 miles), you can stop at Tony P’s for carryout and then have a picnic party or head a little farther to Burton W. Chace Park (about 2.1 miles away) and barbecue up some lunch. You can also feel free to bring your pooches along to either park (just keep them on their leashes) and let them enjoy the long weekend, too.

4. Attend a Yacht Party

Head up to the Fantasea One Yacht at 13509 Fiji Way and get in on the legendary Labor Day Yacht Party. Advanced tickets for Monday, September 2 are sold out, but you can still get tickets at the gate. Check in for ticketholders is at 2 pm, so get there early to secure your spot on the yacht!

5. Catch a Fisherman’s Village Concert

Fisherman's VillageAnother Marina-exclusive Labor Day weekend option is to catch the concerts at Fisherman’s Village. The venue is only 2.5 miles away so Shores residents can easily bike or walk to this oceanside spot for the Sullivan & Hall R&B band on Sunday and Susie Hansen’s Latin Jazz band on Monday.

Shores Welcomes First Move-Ins

It’s been just over one week since Shores swung open its doors and welcomed our very first community residents—and what a great first week it’s been for all of us!  With every resident who strolls through the courtyard, every piece of furniture that’s arranged in an apartment and every greeting we hear between new neighbors, we see Shores transforming into the genuine community we’ve been envisioning since the beginning.

We love to see our very first residents out on the courtyard, relaxing by the pool, spinning in the fitness center and enjoying coffee (and a stellar view) out on their balconies. And you know what else we love to see our new residents doing? Smiling. And we’ve been seeing quite a lot of that around the community, as well.

If you haven’t made it over to Shores yet, come by this week and see if you can meet one of your future neighbors! When you’re ready to make your move to Shores, just stop by the leasing office between 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekly or 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the weekends. You can also reserve your prime apartment online. We can’t wait to welcome you home like we’ve already welcomed so many others.

In the meantime, take a look at how gorgeous our community looks in the photos below!

Shores’ Grand Opening Is the Talk of the Town

When you woke up Monday morning, the world just seemed a little brighter, didn’t it? Well, there’s a reason for that…something you’ve been anxiously awaiting has finally come to fruition. Ready for this? Shores is officially open! Yes, after months of designing and building and refining—our community opened its doors on Monday and our very first move-ins already arrived.

A steady stream of Shores fans came down to 4201 Via Marina to get an up-close and personal look at the community everyone’s been obsessing about for months. And yes, there were a lot of smiles (and ooooohs and ahhhhhhs) happening from the Sky Terraces all the way to the model apartments.

If you weren’t able to stop by on Monday, come over during week to stroll around the two-acre courtyard, take in the Marina views from the Sky Terraces, walk through the top-of-the-line Fitness Center and check out the sparkling pool and Jacuzzis. And when you’re appropriately bursting at the seams to see more, tour the gorgeous apartment model and start thinking about which floorplan will best suit you and your lifestyle. Will it be the one-bedroom Venice (see model below)? The corner Playa plan? Or maybe the expansive two-bedroom Zuma? We’re pretty sure you’ll have your mind made up by the time you’ve finished your tour.

If you’re ready to lease after your visit, just stop at the sales office or—if you prefer—choose your apartment and lease online. We are so excited to finally welcome you home to Shores…we can’t wait to show you around!
