Balfour Beatty to develop Icon Marina Village project in Florida, US

WCN Editorial Team 13 Apr 2021 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

Balfour Beatty has secured a contract from Related Group to develop a mixed-used project, called Icon Marina Village, in Florida, the US.

Icon Marina Village will be a two-tower, 24-story luxury residential and mixed-use project in Florida’s West Palm Beach.

It will feature 399 luxury units.

Balfour Beatty broke ground on the project on 7 April 2021.

The new property will not only offer South Florida residents with a new rental community but also provide unhindered views of the Intracoastal Waterway, Palm Beach Island, the Atlantic and Downtown West Palm Beach.

After completion, Icon Marina will feature a rooftop with adjoining garage and other amenities, such as a heated European-edge swimming pool, semi-private beach club with day dock and sand beach, business lounge, a relaxing spa with sauna, and an outdoor kitchen and fire pit.

Related Group VP and project lead developer Arturo Peña said: “Each one of our Icon properties pushes the boundaries of what is expected out of a rental community, and Icon Marina Village is no different. We’ve been watching the West Palm Beach market very closely, and with this new project we’ll be ready to welcome new South Florida residents in search of a no-compromise living experience.” 

The project will consist of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, with each home featuring quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, Italian cabinetry, full height backsplashes, and a secure, high speed managed Wi-Fi system.

Each waterfront unit will be standardised with high-ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and sweeping balconies. At least, two of the penthouses will have private rooftop swimming pools.

Icon Marina Village symbolises the first phase of a 19 plus acre integrated master development, which Balfour Beatty has undertaken with the collaboration of superyacht refit and repair specialist Rybovich near the location of Rybovich Superyacht Marina.

Balfour Beatty president in the Southeast Scott Skidelsky said: “Our company has had the privilege of working with Related Group in Atlanta to deliver Icon Midtown in 2018, and we are pleased to continue our partnership to build another high-quality construction project for them in Florida. Our project teams are incredibly honoured to build a project with such prestige and prominence, and we look forward to utilising our team’s expertise on another multifamily and mixed-use opportunity in West Palm Beach.”

During construction, the Balfour Beatty team will employ lean construction methods and the latest technologies, such as Building Information Modeling, to efficiently deliver the Icon Marina project with Miami architect Arquitectonica.

With about 350 people working on the project, Icon Marina Village is scheduled for completion in 2023.
