Rosemary rising: Community to break ground for amphitheater this spring

Published: Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 05:41 PM.

A terraced lawn will lead up to the performance space, which will be a covered platform designed to heighten acoustic quality. Louvered doors from the main and side stages will open onto the pool area and, when opened, the performances will be backdropped by a water wall visible in the pool area.

The pool will be a relaxing sanctuary with a zero-edge entry, a sun shelf and a 25-meter lap section. The deck surrounding the pool will include a large dining area as well as cabanas.

An upstairs bar complete with a Juliet balcony will overlook the pool oasis. Owners can relax on the second story, which will also be available for added drama in performances.

The entire pool and amphitheater area will be anchored by an “iconic” Rosemary tower.

The cost to build the performance venue and pool will be around $3 million, all of which will come from Rosemary’s own coffers.

“All is on track for the project,” according to Kemp, and the ground-breaking for the building is set for April 1, 2013.

Those who have witnessed the project grow from concept to reality are excited to bring to the community a place to watch various artistic performances and host community events, from music and dance performances to Rosemary Unleashed, an annual Rosemary event to benefit Alaqua Animal Refuge.
