A jaw-dropping scheme to build a 166-room St Regis resort and 69 ultra-luxe private condominiums on a prime beachfront site has been crowned our latest Project of the Week.
Marriott International’s prestigious luxury brand St Regis has a spectacular spot in Longboat Key, off the west coast of mainland Florida, firmly in its sights for its latest outpost.
An extraordinary new hotel for Longboat Key
Located on the site of the former Colony Beach & Tennis Resort, The St Regis Hotel Longboat Key is expected to feature 166 elegant rooms and a variety of attractive F&B venues, including signature chef-driven steak and seafood restaurant CW Prime, classically inspired St Regis Piano Bar and all-day dining venue The St Regis Grille. The property will also boast its very own spa, salt-water lagoon, stream, heated infinity-edge pool and adults-only pool.
It’s envisaged that this newbuild five-star hotel will be able to host a variety of private events. Besides The Astor Ballroom, the scheme will incorporate a manicured beachside event lawn and extensive business meeting facilities, with every detail handled by meticulous event planners.
The project’s high-powered design team includes the likes of SB Architects, HBA and ENEA Landscape Architecture. Last week, SB Architects announced the appointment of vice president and principal Pinar Harris, who is leading the design for the St Regis Hotel Longboat Key.
A residence like no other
Alongside the hotel, there’ll be 66 condominiums split across three six-story buildings. Residents will have access to the facilities at The St Regis Hotel Longboat Key, but can also enjoy their own dedicated private amenities, such as a pool and spa with sundeck, wellness center and clubhouse.
Developer Unicorp National Developments, together with real-estate services provider Michael Saunders & Company, opened sales for The Residences at The St Regis Longboat Key Resort to the public in the summer of 2020.
The St Regis Hotel Longboat Key is scheduled to open in Q3 2023.
