Boca Beach Club
The Waldorf Astoria Collection
Encircled by water on three sides, the site was completely transformed into a quintessential beachfront destination inclusive of renovations to the 215 room hotel, common areas, and commercial/retail spaces as well as the addition of 52 residential units, a club members’ beach facility, an oceanfront amenity deck with three pools and private cabanas and rooftop gardens. Combining vibrant upscale elegance with innovative solutions, the arrival sequence incorporated a new underground parking system that raised the vehicular arrival to the lobby level creating a more cohesive guest experience and highlighting the premier oceanfront location. Additionally, nearly 1,000 feet of the native beach dune system was restored including hand removal of invasive species, addition of substantial volumes of sand to restore the original profile, replanting with native dunescape, and reconstruction of protective boardwalks.
EDSA provided site planning and detailed design for the entire property, including construction administration for the pool garden, arrival, and members’ beach club.
