Located along the Intracoastal Waterway and adjacent to the Royal Park Bridge, the design was inspired by the notion of a yacht sailing along the water and its ensuing wake. The contemporary architectural expression features an undulating, floor-to-ceiling glass façade, activating the elevations and evoking images of waves on the water. Deep, curving balconies add to the design’s fluidity, while also providing shade to the units.

The 25-story tower features 69 floor-through condominiums, offering all residents views of the water, each served by private elevators. The open floor plans orient the main living areas and primary suites to the east, capturing views of the waterway and Palm Beach. The Bristol offers a bespoke collection of luxury amenities. The elegant two-story lobby features white marble with brass architectural detailing and opens to a lushly landscaped waterfront terrace. The main salon provides a comfortable space for residents to meet, with an adjacent card room. A beauty suite and business center are also located on the main level. On the second floor, a well-appointed fitness center, with separate men’s and women’s spas, connects to a south-facing pool and sun deck.

From the Judges
Very Florida! The judges praised the continuous ribbon balconies and said the curved building “feels like it's from a glamorous era.” They noted the individual entry access for each unit, which felt a little more privatized.
