Hurricane Ivan has SLAMMED Orange Beach !

A Walk Along the Beach--Page 1

We will add photos of Orange Beach condos and beach houses, and places where there are missing beach houses. It will be like a walk along the beach looking at Hurricane Ivan damage in photos. More photos will be added daily, so keep checking back for a look at your property. Because we are trying to add these Hurricane Ivan photos as quickly as possible, we will not take the time to do the normal photo editing we would to, so they may look a bit rough, but hey, this whole area is a lot rough right now !

Beginning with Enclave Condos in Orange Beach on the Beach Side and we will be moving westward. Eventually all the remaining buildings, damaged or undamaged, photos will be added (hopefully). 

Almost all condo buildings have lost their swimming pools, some have lost both outdoor and indoor pools. I'd say about 50-70% of all first floor condo units in Orange Beach are now history. Some condos have public spaces on the first floor, so individuals have not lost their whole condo. Most condos have foundation supports visible. Many beach homes that were between tall buildings are gone or near gone. This is also true for smaller homes located further (second & third tier) from the water but across from the space between the tall buildings where the water rushed thru the openings.

Additionally some condos have very damaged upper top corner units. It always seemed like the top floor corner unit would be the very best location---but after what I saw yesterday, I have decided---maybe not !

The ground floor of Enclave Condos in Orange Beach has extensive hurricane damage.
This looks like an electrician's nightmare !

 ivan-enclave-condo-7.jpg (11471 bytes)
This was Enclave Condo's indoor pool before Ivan.

ivan-enclave-condo-8.jpg (15783 bytes)

Hurricane Ivan inflicted really bad damage to Enclave's ground floor units.

As these hurricane damage photos show, ground floor condos may not be allowable under changes to the building code in the future.

ivan-orange-beach-windward-point-condo-2.jpg (21723 bytes)
Windward Point may have suffered less damage than many condo buildings.

The ShoalWater Condos

ivan-shoalwater-condo-1.jpg (16577 bytes)

ivan-shoalwater-condo-2.jpg (15651 bytes)

Like most of the condos, Shoal Water has many first floor condos with damage. ShoalWater used to have such a nice pool area.Now gone,gone,gone....


ivan-orange-beach-townhouses.jpg (13851 bytes)
Not sure of the name  of these townhouse type condos between Tradewinds and Shoalwater. Looks like a good bit of roof damage. They sit right next to the Holiday Inn Express

The Holiday Inn Express is next and it has very little hurricane damage.I think it would behoove people to find out who built the Holiday Inn Express, and choose a condo built by that builder !

Tradewinds Condos in Orange Beach

ivan-tradewinds-condo-1.jpg (19841 bytes)

ivan-tradewinds-condo-2.jpg (17015 bytes)

Tradewinds has lost it's pool as have almost all of the buildings from Hurricane Ivan's Damage. Other than the lowest level, Tradewinds looks pretty good compared to most.

Seaside Beach and Racquet Club condos.

ivan-seaside-beach-and-racquet-6.jpg (19330 bytes)

As is the case all along Orange Beach, the lowest level of condos is heavily damaged in the parts of Seaside Beach and Racquet Club facing the water. The smaller buildings have mostly roof damage.

Beach Houses behind Tootie Greens & The Silver Shop

It is a pretty big mess in this area, most houses have damage or are missing.

ivan-beach-houses-behind-tootie-green--4.jpg (12197 bytes)

ivan-beach-houses-orange-beach-damage-1.jpg (15287 bytes)
There appear to be some beach houses missing in this area behind the shops. The tall, strong buildings may have caused more water to rush thru this area. It is really badly torn up.

Moving west just past these beach houses is Romar Tower.
