Privé Construction Superintendent Talks About Building an Ultra-Exclusive Island Enclave

Privé Island – December 24, 2015

Twin Luxury Towers Rising Quickly; Project on Track for 2017 Completion

What’s it like leading a construction project unlike any other? In a brief on-site interview in November 2015, we spoke with Bill Gardner, Suffolk Construction’s General Superintendent for Privé at Island Estates, an ultra-luxury residential development rising on South Florida’s last private island.

Gardner, who has been in the construction business for more than 40 years and built numerous high-rise projects, calls Privé “absolutely one of the most prestigious jobs I’ve ever had the opportunity to do.”

Working on Privé An Honor

Gardner says his entire team is excited to be working on Privé, and he considers it an honor to be a part of this one-of-a-kind project, which he describes as “close to everything, but as private as you could possibly be without living on a boat in the middle of the water.”

All of Privé’s building permits and construction loans are in place, says Gardner, and the project is on schedule for completion in 2017. At the time of the November interview, crews were preparing to pour the third floors of the twin 16-story towers. Construction has continued to progress on schedule since then.


#1 Ultra-Luxury Residential Development In Florida

Privé was recently ranked by Elite Traveler magazine as the #1 ultra-luxury residential development in Florida, and #14 in the world. The unique development features 160 impeccably appointed residences in an eight-acre island setting offering exceptional luxury and privacy along with unrivaled amenities and services.

Select penthouse residences also boast private rooftop gardens with full-size swimming pools.

Privé residents will be able to take advantage of an array of first-class, resort-style amenities and services that include a 10,000-square-foot gym in each tower, private dining and social rooms, poolside café, wine and cigar rooms, kids’ rooms, a tennis court, two pools, a marina, a private pier, nature trails, a private beach, a jogging path, a full-time concierge, and 24-hour gated and roving security for the privately bridged island.
