Downtown Sarasota Developments

March 3, 2008

Down Town Sarasota 

The slower real estate market of the past two years has caused many developers to reconsider or revise their plans for downtown condominiums in Sarasota.   Despite delays and postponed start dates, most developers remain bullish on the Sarasota market as are so many high end retailers moving into the area.  Condominiums currently on hold, pending procurement of financing or redesign include:

  • 1289 North Palm – 140 room hotel planned and 150 condos postponed.
  •  Atrium – Request for extension on approval denied.  Developer will redesign.
  • Avalon – To be redesigned with hotel and fewer condominium units.  
  • Bank of America Building – To be redesigned with fewer than original 168 units.
  • City Place at Pineapple Square – Start delayed pending successful pre-sales.
  • DeMarcay – Restaurant and 39 units expected to begin in summer.
  • Devenshire Park – Construction will begin when homes are sold.
  • Grand Sarasotan – This 17 story project was granted an extension.
  • Marquee on the Bay – Three more pre-sales required to obtain financing.
  • One Palm – A hotel is now being planned in it’s place.
  • Sarasota Bayside – $1 billion in in proposed development delayed untill market improves.
