Last week, two of my passions melded: architecture and real estate.
The Sarasota Architecture Foundation members were invited to “Meet the Architects” of the new Vue Sarasota Bay and Westin Hotel. Dan Wolfe, partner, and Igor Reyes, lead project architect, of Coral Gables Architect firm: Nichols Brosch Worst Wolfe & Associates gave us all the insight.
While Dan Wolfe introduced us to his firm and their accomplishments, Igor Reyes gave us “his heart”. To be asked to build a statement hotel and residential tower in a city with their own school of architecture was, at first, rather daunting to Igor. He reviewed and studied our very own designs and was determined to pay tribute to the Sarasota School.
The contemporary design of the Vue with its floor- to- ceiling windows, free flowing rooms and expansive terraces that create a seamless integration of interior and exterior living and will fill the units with natural light while showcasing the panoramic views of Sarasota Bay. It’s a stunning building and promises to be an vibrant place to live.
I loved it when Igor talked about the site location on the northwest corner of US 41 and Gulfstream Blvd. “All roads in Sarasota eventually lead to this site”…it’s the entry to Downtown Sarasota, as well as to the iconic Ringling Bridge leading to St. Armand’s Circle and Lido, Bird and Longboat Keys.
The Vue will be a 18 story building with 140 residential units ranging from 1,645 to 3,415 sq. ft. Each unit will have 2 car parking and private elevator foyers. Priced from $800,000 to $3.4million.
Each residence will have access to the amenities of the 250 room Westin Hotel next door including fully staffed spa, cafe, restaurant and the rooftop lounge overlooking downtown Sarasota and the Bay.
