Frenchman’s Harbor

Toll Brothers Inc.
North Palm Beach, FL

Project Description

This waterfront residential community in northern Palm Beach County is comprised of townhomes and single-family homes, all with dock access. The site is environmentally sensitive and contains both wetland and upland areas. To protect these areas, approximately 3,200 linear feet of retaining wall was installed, effectively dividing the upland development area from the wetland area. The two man-made canals bisecting the upland development area give each lot a waterfront location and easy access to the Intracoastal Waterway.

These canals required the installation of approximately 7,500 linear feet of seawall and allow each lot to have its own dock. An existing waterway flows through the center of the site and a unique underwater box culvert separates the wetland waterway from the man-made canal, allowing for the uninterrupted flow of water without mixing the two bodies of water.

WGI provided design and construction phase services for the box culverts, bridges, seawall, retaining walls, and docks for the development, which was completed in 2013.
