St. Regis Longboat Key Resort and Residences Breaks Ground

SB Architects and Unicorp National Developments, Inc. have hit a huge landmark with the groundbreaking and the official start of construction of the St. Regis Longboat Key Resort and Residences.

Over eight years in the making, the ceremony marks an important milestone not only for SB Architects and developer, Chuck Whittall, but for the Town of Longboat Key.

Developed by Unicorp National Developments, the elegant 166-room resort and 69 private luxury condominiums will be distinguished both for the property’s architectural expression and the level of luxury that the St. Regis brand will bring to the locale. Comprised mostly of glass, the buildings feature clean lines, fine detailing, and soaring floor-to-ceiling windows that draw in natural light and showcase stunning coastal views.

“Our goal was to create a sense of relaxed comfort and elegance through contemporary design in both the resort and private residences. Drawing inspiration from the existing landscape for materials and celebrating the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico through visual connections to the ocean, the design channels the spirit of the St. Regis brand through a timeless expression of barefoot luxury.”

Pinar Harris, Vice President and Principal, SB Architects

SB Architects is working alongside Hirsch Bedner Associates Miami (HBA), Marc-Michaels Interior Design, Enea Landscape Design, and Moss Construction to bring the vision to life. Slated to open in spring 2023, the new resort community nestled in the beautiful white sands of the Gulf of Mexico, will deliver luxury seaside living with the amenities and service of a world-class, five-star resort.
