“In March 2008, ground was officially broken to make way for The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort,” says Keith Fordsman, vice president of development for Starwood Vacation Ownership, Inc., a part of the Starwood hotels and resorts family. “Now, 18 months later, we have completed vertical construction for both our center hotel tower and private north residential tower. Our third 27-story tower, also designed for private residences, has been poured up to the 14th floor and is slated to be topped off this coming February.”
One of the most anticipated new developments in the Southeast, The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort is on a coveted piece of oceanfront property in the enclave of Bal Harbour Village.
Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., one of the leading hotel and leisure companies in the world, is taking the lead role in the success of The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort through its ownership, development supervision and, later, management of what will set the tone for 21st century luxury living in South Florida.
“It is very exciting to see the property transform from a concrete construction project engulfed by giant cranes to a soaring, architectural masterpiece,” adds Fordsman.
Currently, windows and sliding glass door frames have been installed up to the 26th level and interior framing is complete up to the 12th floor in the center hotel tower. Even the six-fixture baths are taking form as designer bathtubs and shower valves are mounted. Additionally, innovative technology plays an important role in the design of The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort, he says.
“We live by construction milestones and I remain impressed by the craftsmanship and quality of work being put in place by our dedicated team of talented individuals,” says Tom C. Murphy, vice president of preconstruction services for Coastal Construction Company, contractor for The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort. “We are working with the best in the industry and it shows by their commitment to detail and adherence to our timeline.”
Those with an appreciation for such fine detail and an eye for the incomparable are finding the perfect match at The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort. The one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom luxury tower residences offer ownership opportunities beginning at $1.9 million. Expansive floor plans, ranging from 1,777 to 6,868 square feet, provide the luxury of choice, with some buyers electing to combine units for larger homes.
Current design plans include 268 ultra-luxurious residences, 37 condo-hotel suites, 183 hotel rooms and 24 fractional suites. Highlights include signature butler service, a 12,000-square-foot Remède Spa and serene gardens with multiple pools, water features and sculptures.
