Progressively Palm Beach

The Bristol promises to be a modern take on luxury condo living

By Leslie Kraft Burke

The Bristol, one of the newest condo buildings set to be built in West Palm Beach, will likely set a modern standard for gracious, ultra-luxury living. The groundbreaking for the 25-story waterfront structure is planned for early 2016 by developer Flagler Investors, with completion expected by early 2018.

Breathtaking, unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway and the city of Palm Beach will take center stage in the airy, modern design of the Bristol, which was created by architects Solomon Cordwell Buenz and Revuelta Architecture. Interiors and public spaces have been created by New York-based designer Amir Khamneipur.

With floor-to-ceiling glass windows, clean lines, soaring ceilings, light woods and marble, the Bristol will be sure to stand out in a town noted for its Addison Mizner Mediterranean-style architecture. All exterior glass in the building will be high efficiency and noise-reducing.

The project will have 69 residences, ranging from three to five bedrooms and 3,700 to 14,000 square feet. Prices start at $5 million for the units, which are delivered furnished and can be accessed via private elevators that open directly to each one. There also are separate service elevators for staff and deliveries.

All residences will have expansive terraces with porcelain tile floors, “lift & glide” floor-to-ceiling doors and frameless glass balcony railings. Kitchens will feature Gaggenau double ovens, gas and electric induction cooktops and wine cooling areas.

The fitness center will include a yoga and personal training room along with men’s and women’s spa areas each with hot tub, steam room, sauna, relaxation room, fireplace, lockers and indoor and outdoor private massage treatment rooms. A dedicated beauty suite is planned as well for private hair, manicure and pedicure appointments.

A 75-foot-long outdoor lap pool, hot tub, children’s pool facility and dog walkway will be set among the Bristol’s landscaping. Public areas will include a club lounge, card room, dining area, catering kitchen, conference rooms and business center.

Door, valet and front desk staff will be on duty 24/7, and there will be a full-time concierge who – among other duties – will regularly arrange car service to nearby shopping and restaurants. Private air-conditioned storage areas are also planned, while two- and three-car, air-conditioned garages are available for purchase.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
