Sapphire2IBC Bank and Strategyst presented a reception to celebrate the successful revival of Sapphire on Saturday at the Sapphire Courtyard.

Laredo-based IBC Bank recently acquired Sapphire, two majestic towers of high-rise luxury condominiums located at the southern tip of South Padre Island, in the paradise-like area nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Laguna Madre Bay. With the help of a real estate and marketing company called, “Strategyst, LLC,” more than 80 percent of the 230 Sapphire residences have been sold and only 42 luxury condominiums remain available.

Sapphire was designed by the widely acclaimed firm of architects, Ziegler Cooper Associates, which is known for its experience and expertise in high-rise residential buildings. Sapphire’s condominiums feature two and three bedrooms, bungalows and penthouses, all equipped with windows built to withstand the force of hurricane winds.
