Last week, our team headed on-site to celebrate the official topping-out ceremony of the St. Regis Longboat Key Resort and Residences.
Nine years in the making, the ceremony marks an important milestone not only for SB Architects and developer, Chuck Whittall, but for the Town of Longboat Key.
Developed by Unicorp National Developments, the elegant 166-room resort and 69 private luxury condominiums will be distinguished both for the property’s architectural expression and the level of luxury that the St. Regis brand will bring to the locale. Comprised mostly of glass, the buildings feature clean lines, fine detailing, and soaring floor-to-ceiling windows that draw in natural light and showcase stunning coastal views.
“We’re excited and proud to see the destination hit this incredible milestone. Our team at SB Architects is honored to have collaborated with Unicorp National Developments and our fantastic collaborators on this project. Our goal was to create a sense of relaxed comfort and elegance through contemporary design in both the resort and private residences. Drawing inspiration from the existing landscape for materials and celebrating the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico through visual connections to the ocean, the design channels the spirit of the St. Regis brand through a timeless expression of barefoot luxury.”
SB Architects is working alongside Hirsch Bedner Associates Miami (HBA), Marc-Michaels Interior Design, Enea Landscape Design, and Moss Construction to bring the vision to life. Slated to open in 2024, the new resort community nestled in the beautiful white sands of the Gulf of Mexico, will deliver luxury seaside living with the amenities and service of a world-class, five-star resort.
