Suffolk Construction Head Calls Privé a ‘One-of-a-Kind Project’

Privé Island – December 10, 2015

“We’ve never built a project this luxurious.”

In a recent interview, Jeffrey Gouveia, President and General Manager of Suffolk Construction’s Southeast Region, discussed what it’s like working on Privé at Island Estates, an ultra-exclusive enclave with just 160 ocean-view residences in twin 16-story towers now rising on South Florida’s last private island.

Suffolk is a large, national construction company that has worked on hundreds of projects in Miami and across the U.S. but Gouveia says Privé is a one-of-a-kind project for the firm. The ultra-exclusive enclave, he says, is “a truly luxurious private island, so close to all that South Florida has to offer.”

As Gouveia noted in his interview, Privé has all of its permits and construction loan in place and is on track for completion in Q2 2017.


When completed, Privé will offer residents exceptional luxury and privacy, with graciously proportioned, impeccably appointed residences, unrivaled amenities and services, and splendid seclusion afforded by its eight-acre island setting.

These are just some of the reasons why Privé was recently ranked by Elite Traveler magazine as the #1 ultra-luxury residential development in Florida, and #14 in the world.

Spacious residences at Privé range in size from 2,585 square feet to more than 9,000 square feet and include private elevator entry, flow-through floor plans with 10-foot glass on both eastern and western exposures, 10-foot-deep balconies, expansive east/west water views throughout, European kitchens and bathrooms, and outdoor summer kitchens. Select penthouse residences feature private rooftop gardens with full-size swimming pools.

First-class, resort-style amenities and services include a 10,000-square-foot gym in each tower, private dining and social rooms, poolside café, wine and cigar rooms, kids rooms, tennis court, two pools, marina, private pier, nature trail, private beach, jogging path, full-time concierge, and 24-hour gated and roving security for the privately bridged island.
