Coined Florida’s Cultural Coast, Sarasota is quickly becoming one of today’s most sought-after destinations for boutique waterfront living. Boasting white-sand beaches with unparalleled views of the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay, a diverse art scene, and upscale dining and shopping, it is idyllic for those seeking a life of leisure and luxury. As the region’s popularity grows, Sarasota is transforming with the rise of new condominiums featuring upscale lifestyle amenities, privacy, and proximity to downtown.
Located just a short stroll from downtown Sarasota, Peninsula Sarasota has continuously drawn in discerning buyers in search of a boutique waterfront lifestyle. With quiet surroundings and an intimate community design, this condominium presents an excellent option for those who desire a stress-free lifestyle in one of the world’s most dynamic cities. Let’s take a closer look.
For many high-rise condominiums, a typical construction timeline spans approximately two years. While residents may envision the carefree lifestyle they desire, they must patiently await its realization. Setbacks in the permitting process could also potentially extend that timeline even further. Boutique condominiums, designed with less floors and shorter construction timelines, have become an ideal alternative for those wishing to enjoy that lifestyle quickly.
Since its groundbreaking in May 2023, Peninsula Sarasota has made excellent strides in bringing the community to life. Spearheaded by Silverline Construction, led by President and Chief Estimator Fred Basli, the boutique condominium is projected to be move-in ready by the end of 2024. The building’s exterior is nearing completion, with topping off expected by the end of February. After vertical construction is complete, the team will shift their focus to creating the numerous amenities and interior spaces residents anticipate. The rise of the condominium on Golden Gate Point provides future residents with confidence in its delivery schedule, creating excitement for their move later this year.
Imagine waking up to beautiful views and venturing to the fitness center for a workout or taking a stroll downtown for a morning latte before basking on the sun deck by the pool. Peninsula Sarasota’s two mid-rise buildings feature amenities designed by Karen Asprea Studio to capture the essence of tranquility and relaxation. For those who prefer morning workouts with sunrise views, a state-of-the-art fitness center features the latest technology in cardio and strength training equipment. For a more leisurely routine, a private, resort-style swimming pool, fire pits, and sun deck are located on the shared second floor of the buildings. The Rooftop Residents’ Lounge overlooks Marina Jack and Sarasota Bay with delightful seating areas – perfect for enjoying a cocktail watching the sunset.
Having personalized services readily available adds luxury and convenience to everyday life. On-site security measures allow homebuyers to travel with peace of mind, knowing their residence is in capable hands while they’re away. At Peninsula Sarasota, personalized services and 24/7 controlled entry points to all lobbies, elevators, and the parking garage provide both tranquility and convenience. On-site concierges provide a welcoming presence and can help residents with local information or coordinate events and services. These knowledgeable attendants go above and beyond in providing personalized service and assistance to all residents and are able to handle the finest of life’s details.
Just as important as the building, however, is the neighborhood surrounding a condo. While prospective buyers appreciate proximity to vibrant activities, having the ability to return home to a secluded retreat away from the hustle and bustle is equally appealing. Peninsula Sarasota residents will enjoy the best of both worlds with the condo’s premier location on Golden Gate Point. This 22-acre peninsula jutting into Sarasota Bay is adorned to imitate a garden-like setting, with only one road circling the entire neighborhood. The small-town feeling creates a beautiful sense of community throughout the neighborhood of friendly residents. With no commercial properties allowed and a building height restriction of 110 feet, residents are able to enjoy a small neighborhood atmosphere while also being within a short walk to all the restaurants and entertainment available in Downtown Sarasota.
Downtown Sarasota is home to several diverse arts venues, fine dining, and high-end boutique shopping. Residents of the Golden Gate Point neighborhood never have a shortage of entertainment within a short walk. Palm Avenue’s Gallery Row features numerous local art galleries and a monthly First Friday Gallery Walk where residents can explore the scene. The historic Sarasota Opera House celebrates its 64th season this year, named one of the “finest opera venues in the United States.” Main Street is home to Zagat-rated dining, luxury boutique shopping, and exciting festivals and events all year long. Downtown Sarasota is also just a quick drive from one of the nation’s most renowned beaches and the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.
With delivery scheduled for the end of 2024, Peninsula Sarasota is rapidly approaching sellout. Only five of the original 23 residences are still available. The two buildings’ intimate layout features just one or two residences per floor with open-concept floorplans, 10-foot ceilings, and spa-inspired color palettes that convey a soothing sense of relaxation. Expansive private terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows provide stunning views of the waterfront downtown, Sarasota Bay, and the Gulf of Mexico.
Priced from $4.5 million, Peninsula Sarasota is experiencing high demand for its centrally located yet secluded lifestyle. For more information and to preview available floorplans, Peninsula Sarasota’s Sales Gallery is now open daily at 1300 Main Street.
