Forest Development and Royal Palm Companies recently celebrated the topping-off construction milestone for Nautilus 220, a new luxury mixed-use development with condominium residences in two 24-story towers, waterfront restaurants including SeaHawk Prime by Chef David Burke, retail, and office suites alongside a marina at 220 Lake Shore Drive in Lake Park, Florida. The traditional topping-off ceremony was commemorated at the project site on November 3, 2023, by more than 550 guests, including construction workers, project partners, and elected officials.
During the event, Kast Construction honored the men and women who actively worked to achieve this significant moment of the project. An American flag, a palm tree, and a beam signed by all involved were raised to the top of the building to illustrate their accomplishment. The celebration included a range of festivities, including a catered lunch, a customary raffle, prize giveaways, and musical entertainment to thank the team for their efforts. Below are images of the topped-off towers.
“Thank you to our construction team for reaching this milestone on schedule,” said Peter Baytarian, Managing Partner of Forest Development. “Nautilus 220 is changing the landscape in Lake Park, and in just over a year, we will be welcoming 330 new families.”
“Nautilus 220 represents a remarkable achievement in defining luxury living in Lake Park, and the residences are 80% sold,” said Daniel Kodsi, CEO of Royal Palm Companies. “This project is more than just a spectacular home for our buyers but a catalyst for positive change in this community and the lives of construction workers who have helped make it possible.”
Nautilus 220 comprises 330 two- and three-bedroom condominiums ranging from 1,500 to 3,400 square feet in two 24-story towers.

The project also offers amenities, including a one-acre outdoor amenity deck, resort-style pool, rooftop lap pool, wellness plaza, putting green, club room, theatre lounge, billiards, bowling, off-leash dog run, guest suites, and private beach club access.
