FIRST IMPRESSIONS NEVER LIE
The inaugural project in Koraal Tabak is given the name Porta Kurá Bunita. This gated enclave right next to the entrance is a triangular piece of land, overlooks the former tobacco plantation. While the the master plan stretches throughout the entire Koraal Tabak terrains, Porta Kurá Bunita gets the V.I.P. treatment.
I talk with architectural master minds, Studio8, about the vision for this prime property. Harm Rooijakkers explains: “this high situated piece is designed to become a comfortable and social living area for a mixed group. With a central community swimming pool and recreational area, we stimulate social interaction, while the houses and apartments offer privacy. Porta Kurá Bunita is a statement: here you enter Koraal Tabak”. The architecture of the 18 detached houses and 4 apartment buildings is contemporary. Everything is leveled to guarantee life long enjoyment of these dwellings. Lots vary in size, and there is enough parking space calculated in the floor design. Rooijakkers follows: “we aim to attract both local buyers as well as international public that are looking for an investment or a second home on Curacao. We made provisions for young couples, young families, empty nesters, pensionados and investors”.

This closed community compound is like a blue print for Koraal Tabak’s vision points for sustainable and environmental conscious development. For instance, household water will be recycled for irrigation of landscaping. Sale of houses and apartments will commence in September 2020. Construction will start in early 2021. So, if you are looking for the V.I.P. treatment, make sure you are the pioneer that settles first in Porta Kurá Bunita.
