Sail Away


As everyone heads to the coast to enjoy the end of summer, Abode2 take a tour of luxury condos throughout the US with architecture inspired by the sea. These exciting new developments feature nautical-inspired designs, following the latest trends in luxurious yachts and evoking the felling of freedom when the wind fills the sails of a ship.

The St. Regis Residences, Boston

Situated directly on the waterfront in the heart of Boston's Seaport District, The St. Regis Residences, Boston has been designed by acclaimed Boston-based architecture firm Elkus Manfredi Architects to pay homage to Boston's storied seafaring history. The 22-story building sports an eye-catching glass façade that evokes the sails of a ship and the curve of a ship's bow. The dynamic, twisting shape emulates the movement of water and ensures the residences have unobstructed water views. The St. Regis Residences, Boston is located on the last remaining residential waterfront development site on the Boston Harbor and is the first development in Boston to offer hotel-branded residences without an attached hotel.

Cipriani Residences Miami

Soaring 80 stories above the Brickell skyline and Biscayne Bay, Cipriani Residences Miami marries Miami's modern and sleek aesthetic with Cipriani's nautical, Venetian heritage. The Arquitectonica design team envisioned incorporating unique design elements and subtle details that portray that of an Italian luxury yacht, such as a porte-cochere embellished with wood bands and portholes at the corners, and flowing lines that bend around the building creating curved residences. The goal was to translate the generations-long legacy of the Cipriani brand, which started with the historic Harry's Bar in Venice, into the fabric of the building and create a standard for Cipriani Residences that is not only authentic to the brand, but also the family, who were very involved in Arquitectonica's process.

Two Waterline Square

Designed by the internationally renowned firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), Two Waterline Square sports a dynamic cascading form resembling a ship's prow. The sculptural façade features striking cantilevers and terraces that mimic the movement of sails in the wind and reflect the building's location at the edge of the waterfront. Two Waterline Square is one of three residential buildings that make up Waterline Square, the iconic development on one of the last remaining waterfront sites on Manhattan's Upper West Side.
