Jim Wells with Wells Realty Inc. is overseeing Isola Bella for developers Padre Bella Inc., a partnership of Monterrey, Mexico-based Ricardo Martinez and Felipe Benevidas. Wells tells GlobeSt.com that the engineering has been completed and the soil borings are done, but the project will likely be fall about a month behind schedule due to the causeway collapse. Wells says he is taking the downtime to get the paperwork completed on the project. The original plan called for a groundbreaking within 60 days and carries an 18-month construction timeline.

The luxury condominiums will be priced from $495,000 to $595,000, with each of the four penthouses priced at $1 million. The two towers are 17-story designs.
