Stantec Celebrates Groundbreaking of LA CLARA Luxury Condominium Tower in West Palm Beach, Florida
Posted on: May 16, 2019

WEST PALM BEACH, FL - Global design and engineering firm Stantec celebrates the groundbreaking of LA CLARA, a luxury 25-story residential building by internationally award-wining Canadian real estate developer Great Gulf. Stantec is the architect of record, working in partnership with design architect Hariri Pontarini Architects, for the waterfront development located at 1515 South Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway, LA CLARA provides a new twist on Floridian Modernism with expansive private terraces, luxury finishes and unobstructed views. It includes 83 residences comprised of one-, two- and three-bedroom units ranging from 1,500 to more than 4,000 square feet.

“The goal of LA CLARA’s design is to maximize the views towards the Intracoastal and the Atlantic Ocean from every angle of the building,” said Jennifer Llop-Noy, project manager in Stantec’s Miami office. “We’ve accomplished this by staggering the floorplans, implementing a floor-to-ceiling glass envelope and creating exterior living areas for each unit.”

The structure’s façade will feature a contemporary Florida Modernist style with a muted neutral palette consisting of stucco, Roman travertine, coral stone and granite with bronze accents.

The luxury condominium is designed to achieve LEED Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Stantec is a recognized global leader in architecture, design and engineering, ranked among the top 10 architecture firms by Architectural Record and top 10 global design firms by Engineering News-Record. The firm has designed numerous prominent projects throughout Florida, including Solitair Brickell; Luma at Miami Worldcenter; YOTELPAD in Downtown Miami; Yard 8 in Midtown Miami; 17 West in Miami Beach; Avalon Doral; and Park-Line in Miami and West Palm Beach.
