Stantec has been selected as the architect of record for South Flagler House, the new 89-unit luxury condominium project in West Palm Beach. The project is being developed by Palm Beach-based real estate investment firm Frisbie Group and global real estate company Hines; and Stantec will be working with Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA), who designed the development. It is RAMSA’s first luxury residential high-rise in Florida.
“The idea behind the project is to create a vertical village that connects with the historical Mediterranean Revival architecture of West Palm Beach. This will be achieved by applying era-appropriate materials such as terracotta roof tiles and a limestone and stucco façade. In addition, its human scale allows light and air between the buildings,” said Aida Sanchez-Gomez, senior architect at Stantec.
“The design will include a combination of large bay windows, balconies, awnings, and deep terraces with views of the Intracoastal Waterway to showcase the variety of living spaces within the development.”
South Flagler House features two majestic 28-story structures rising from a base lined with stepped gardens and townhouses. The architecture will blend with the timeless character and elegance of Palm Beach, while celebrating a prime waterfront location along Florida’s Gold Coast with permanent unobstructed views of the water.
Featuring 89 carefully curated residences, South Flagler House will offer three to six-bedroom homes, townhouses and penthouses, and one seven-bedroom townhome. Pembrooke & Ives designed elegant interiors to showcase the residences’ expansive layouts, spectacular views, and luxurious outdoor spaces.
SMI is the landscape architect for South Flagler House.
The project team will design the facility to achieve LEED Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council, Green Globe Certification by the Green Building Initiative, and WELL Certification by the International WELL Building Institute. All building systems will be raised 2’-0” to 10’-0” above FEMA flood elevation and the entrance’s circular motor court and lobby will also be raised 10’-0” above FEMA flood elevation.
