Pineapple Square

July 6, 2006

Pineapple Square will be a great addition to downtown Sarasota. There are many exciting new condominium projects recently completed and in various stages of construction. With all the new buildings there is a need for new retail and Pineapple Square will provide much of the needed new high end retail shop’s. Pineapple Square will have 30 to 40 new retail shops at street level and multi-level public parking in addition to it’s 276 residences.

In all there will be 130,000 square feet of new retail, 172 condominiums, 6 townhouses, and 32 loft units, 600 covered public parking spaces and an additional 400 for residents. Valet Parking will be offered along with a host of upscale amenities including elegantly appointed residential elevator lobbies, large heated pool, poolside grilling area, media room, owner storage area, gathering room, kitchen, fitness center and locker rooms.

A major feature is a large central pedestrian breezeway the width of a street and over 30 feet tall. Lined on both sides with retail shops, the breezeway will be protected from weather and light-filled to make it comfortable and inviting to traverse. Another project distinction is that the buildings will “step back” away from the street, increasing daylight at street level. Pineapple Square will feature three new small urban parks and two plazas as public gathering spaces, perfect for outdoor fairs and entertainment.

New stores are expected to be a 60/40 blend of major national retailers and local/regional stores offering 80 percent fashion/soft goods and 20 percent dining/entertainment. The eclectic architectural style will add to the authenticity of an urban shopping experience and complement the authentic Main Street Sarasota already possesses. New tenants may include Morton’s Steakhouse, Brooks Brothers, Cole Haan, Ann Taylor, Lillie Rubin, and P.F. Chang’s.
