Sonesta Resort Key Biscayne
Key Biscayne, Florida
Designed to replace an aging hotel on prime beachfront property in the upscale South Florida community of Key Biscayne, the Sonesta Resort is a collection of luxury residences housed in 4 distinct towers resting atop a 2 level subterranean parking structure. The sleek, modern 13-story towers house over 160 residential units, ranging in size from 2,500 to 8,400 square feet. Additional luxury villas offer poolside living just steps from the beach. The lushly landscaped site features a series of dramatic resort pools for both active and passive use, grass tennis courts, a sculpture garden, a dune crossover, 2 open air pool bars, and a large function lawn suitable for weddings and special events. Additional amenities for the residents include a specialty restaurant facing the gulf and offering outdoor dining overlooking an elaborate water garden, a luxury spa, dedicated entry courts and reception lobbies for each tower, and rooftop pools atop each tower. This 1,030,000 square foot complex was carefully designed to fit on its 10 acre site in full compliance with a highly restrictive zoning ordinance governing unit density, building height, massing, and lot coverage. With no undeveloped beachfront property left in Key Biscayne, the Sonesta Resort will offer residential units unlikely to be surpassed in size or luxury for the foreseeable future.
