Project of the Week: Mandarin Oriental Boca Raton, Florida

by | 22 Feb 2021 | News, Project of the Week, Projects

Designed by the likes of SB Architects and HBA, Mandarin Oriental’s opulent hotel-and-branded-residences scheme is a worthy winner of our Project of the Week crown.

Mandarin Oriental’s latest site forms part of an upscale mixed-use development in the downtown area of Palm Beach County’s southernmost city, which will incorporate 65,000 sq ft of luxury lifestyle retail plus an exclusive private club.

A new luxury lifestyle hub

Mandarin Oriental first announced that it would manage a luxury-hotel-and-branded-residences project under development in Boca Raton back in 2015. The ambitious scheme spans two adjacent towers on East Boca Raton Road.

The hotel will accommodate 164 rooms and suites with ocean or city views, a signature rooftop restaurant with outdoor terrace and bar, a lobby lounge, a club lounge and a Mandarin Oriental cake shop. There’ll also be a spa, a fitness centre, a rooftop pool, a 4,500 sq ft ballroom and several adaptable conference rooms.

Meanwhile, the branded residences will enjoy exclusive access to the hotel via a skybridge. The complex will feature 89 residences in total, ranging from 1,425 to 8,800 sq ft.

An enviable project team

The project is being developed by Penn-Florida Companies, with architecture from SB Architects and interiors courtesy of HBA.

For its part, SB Architects aims to pay tribute to the Mediterranean-influenced architectural heritage of Addison Mizner that Boca Raton’s known for. Inside, the hotel will embody a sophisticated and contemporary style, all while reflecting Mandarin Oriental’s Asian heritage.

The new development lies amid the city’s most affluent residential neighbourhoods, just a short walk from its famous beaches. The surrounding area boasts a range of golf courses and parks, as well as various cultural attractions.

Through this property, Penn-Florida Companies aims to set new standards of luxury hospitality and contemporary living for Boca Raton. The hotel is currently slated to make its debut in the third quarter of 2022.
