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.
