Press Release

The Cove at Tiburon completes multi-million-dollar transformation

Luxury Community a Showcase for Resort-style Living on the Marin Waterfront

(Tiburon, CA September 13, 2018) – The Cove at Tiburon (a Maximus community) announces the imminent completion of its 5-year, $50+ million transformation from ‘weary to WOW.’ Now a stunning property and revitalized marina with 283 luxury apartments, The Cove is at the forefront of the rising trend in resort-style, lifestyle communities as a compelling alternative to home ownership.

The transformation will culminate with the completion of The Pointe at Cove, a collection of 11 luxury residences scheduled to open in October. These 2-4-bedroom homes were designed to appeal to the most discerning individuals, featuring soaring interiors, exceptional finishes and design (by Holly Hulburd Design) as well as stunning views of Richardson Bay and the San Francisco skyline beyond. The homes at The Pointe have outdoor fireplaces and/or overhead heat lamps on their balconies in order to enable each resident to partake in nature’s beauty regardless of the seasonal chill. Homes are located over the water, immediately adjacent to the Audubon Sanctuary and accompanied by a private beach. With each home featuring ample outdoor space, there is no place to live in nature more peacefully than The Pointe.  At the top of The Pointe sits the most exclusive residence: 4 bedrooms and 2,600 square feet of luxury design, comparable to the finest custom homes in Marin, with unparalleled vistas of all that nature and the City can provide.

“People who haven’t recently visited The Cove will barely recognize it,” said Brandon Elliott, Vice President Operations of Maximus Real Estate Partners, which purchased the property in 2013. “It was a diamond in the rough when we acquired it, but we immediately saw the potential of the location and the opportunity to imagine what The Cove at Tiburon could become. We believe we have created something very special that captures the best of living in Marin, far exceeding the community’s expectations and current standards otherwise available.”

The Cove reflects a national trend in community living, as developers create concepts for residents that are looking for much more than an apartment to live in and a staff to maintain it.  Resort-style, lifestyle centric communities like The Cove provide lush landscaping (by RHAA Landscape Architects), concierge style service, amenities and activities that make residents feel they are on vacation every day of the year.

“Renters have much higher expectations than they did even a few years ago,” said Elliott. “They want to come home to a beautiful setting, a better-quality home, more thoughtful amenities, as well as individual and group activities that are not only fun, but also create a sense of community. When we provide the value, discerning customers are willing to pay for it.”

As a waterfront community, The Cove has a beach, complimentary kayaks and paddleboards and a private marina with 50 slips – including a dedicated sailboat (with Captain) that residents can charter. A full-time Activities Director manages a busy schedule of events and classes for both adults and children.  Residents also gather at the state-of-the-art Clubhouse fronting the marina, the Sunset Lounge and yoga studio overlooking the bay, freshwater pools throughout the property, and The Grove – a park that features a natural-tree play structure carved by local West Marin artist and arborist Evan Shively.

The Cove apartments currently range from $3,115 per month for a one bedroom, one bath home, to over $15,000.
