Sarasota’s Downtown Condo Culture
If you haven’t been to downtown Sarasota in the last couple of years, you may not recognize it anymore. Drive over the Ringling Bridge and you’ll see what I mean. The skyline is sparkling with the lights of stunning new buildings, including several luxury condominiums under construction.
Sarasota is far from a sleepy beach town, and downtown is fast becoming a mini metropolis that’s a destination for visitors and residents alike. Sarasota urbanites enjoy world-class dining, indulgent boutique shopping and a picturesque waterfront, all in walking distance from the top residences in the city.
Well underway now is VUE Sarasota Bay, a 141-residence building designed in the style of the Sarasota School of Architecture. The building is more than 80 percent sold out, but 26 residences still remain in a wide variety of floor plans, each with floor-to-ceiling glass, priced from $909,000 to $3.4 million. http://www.vuesarasotabay.com/
Another unique project under construction downtown is One88, a luxury condominium at Golden Gate Point. This boutique community has four remaining residences priced from $2.59 million, and each residence has a city and bay view. http://www.tandemconstruction.com/project/one88-golden-gate-point
Aqua, a luxury condominium tower also on Golden Gate Point, was designed by popular Sarasota architect Guy Peterson. The eight-residence building offers city and bay views and residences are generously sized at 3,400+ square feet. http://sarasotabayrealestate.com/aqua/
History will surround residents of the planned Orange Club condominiums and townhomes in downtown Sarasota’s Burns Square. Orange Club will include 15 condos and 9 townhomes starting from $515,000 that will offer the best of urban luxury living. http://vandyk.com/residential/orangeclub/location/

Also on Palm Avenue, The Demarcay offers open floorplans from 1,100 to 3,100 square feet, starting in the $550s. The building will include 30 residences with natural light, easy access to downtown’s many amenities and views of the bay. http://www.demarcay33southpalm.com
