The Olympia

Destin, Florida

The Olympia is an 18,000 square foot, five story condominium that transcends typical waterfront development. Employing classic building forms, Caribbean influences and lush landscaping, The Olympia offers a serene tropical villa in the midst of the Florida Panhandle’s urban sprawl. Fine craftsmanship and traditional detailing are combined with state of the art fixtures, appliances and other building technologies. The interiors create a yacht-like appearance with a nautical look expressed in bronze railings, mahogany doors and windows and teak paneling. The Olympia’s grounds include a pool, spa, poolside cabanas and an arched gate which leads to a five-slip, teak boat dock. A parking garage for eight vehicles is concealed under the first floor level, making efficient use of narrow site constraints. The five waterfront residential units have numerous operable windows and balconies that take advantage of the gulf breezes and views of Old Pass Lagoon. The three largest residences are 2500 square feet and occupy a full floor; each unit has a private lobby with elevator access. Overall, The Olympia provides the residents with firstclass amenities and a timeless architecture of exceptional quality.
