Key Largo’s Ocean Reef has a new community

Aimed at merging modern luxury with the upscale tradition of Key Largo’s Ocean Reef Club, 121 Marina is the first new residential condominium development to be built within the community in nearly two decades.

The project, which includes 29 three- and four-bedroom residences, is situated on the marina in the heart of the Ocean Reef complex, which is at the northern tip of Key Largo and has a history dating to a fishing camp that started in 1948. It has 2,500 acres, two 18-hole golf courses, shopping, an airstrip and school from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade.

The condominiums were designed by Stofft Cooney Architects and the Coral Gables-based architecture and interior design agency Edge of Architecture. Units start at $4.6 million and are configured in three-story buildings. Floor plans range from 2,971 square feet to more than 4,695 under air.

121 Marina - InteriorThe designers emphasize fine finishes to accommodate an entertaining- and outdoor-oriented lifestyle. Kitchens have Italian cabinetry, stone countertops, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, plus an integrated espresso/cappuccino bar area with Sub-Zero wine coolers.

Each residence, prewired for high-speed internet and smart home technology, also boasts a terrace of more than 500 square feet-—with some more than 1,000. All feature summer kitchens with a barbecue and sink, as well as sunset views.

There are two parking spaces and one golf cart space per residence, along with electric vehicle charging stations.

121 Marina, which has 750 feet of marina footage, has a prime position within the Ocean Reef complex; it’s within walking distance to the Buccaneer Island swimming lagoon and beach, Carysfort Hall and the Fishing Village shops. It includes a junior Olympic-sized swimming pool with lap lane and deep lounge steps. Private pool amenities include cabanas, sun deck and barbecue area.

A fitness center overlooks the pool deck and marina, and other recreation areas include a putting green and yoga lawn. There’s also a special club room planned for children, to be outfitted with multimedia facilities and gaming tables.

121 Marina - Fitness CenterAll residents of the controlled access community will have access to personalized concierge services and private, individual storage areas, which are considered a premium find in the Florida Keys.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
