May 26, 2022 | Read Time: 5 minutes
Two of Connecticut’s most well-known builders are taking their expertise to one of Florida’s most sought-after destinations. For decades, both Joe Feinleib of Coastal Luxury Homes and Sam Gault of Gault Family Companies have set the standard for luxury home development across Fairfield County. Now, these two Connecticut developers are teaming up in a new way to develop Peninsula Sarasota, a private enclave within steps from the world-renowned Sarasota, Florida lifestyle. See how the collaboration between these world-class developers brings vast expertise and impressive portfolios together in a powerhouse partnership.
Connecticut Developers Cherished for their Expertise
Both Feinleib and Gault are widely recognized throughout Connecticut for their decades of home building expertise, consistently raising the bar for exceptional service and professionalism. As the principal and founder of Coastal Luxury Homes
, Joe Feinleib and his team of dedicated home builders have created valued communities recognized for their distinctive vision, top-of-the-line amenities, and contemporary living spaces. Along with a collection of architecturally distinct custom homes, Coastal Luxury is also well-known for developing Coastal Point West
, a private apartment complex in central Westport, and Harbourside SoNo
, a luxury apartment complex in Norwalk just a train ride away from New York City.
Sam Gault, president of Gault Family Companies
, has also played a major role in developing the Fairfield County area. This sixth-generation family business brings over 156 years of knowledge in real estate development and management. Their healthy portfolio includes the award-winning Saugatuck Center, a mixed-use waterside apartment community with contemporary living spaces, waterfront amenities, and retail and commercial spaces. Feinleib and Gault have also worked together on numerous condominium developments in the area. The Mill Westport
, a historic candle-wick mill that has been repurposed to create a residential complex in the heart of Westport, Connecticut, is their most recent joint venture in the area.After numerous successful projects in the Fairfield County region, Feinleib and Gault have decided to bring their talents to the west coast of Florida. Here, they plan to create Peninsula Sarasota
, a private enclave of just 23 residences within steps of the world-renowned Downtown Sarasota lifestyle.
An Enviable Downtown Sarasota Lifestyle
The team was attracted to Downtown Sarasota’s unique combination of beautiful natural surroundings and abundant arts and culture scenes. Sarasota has been growing into one of the most sought-after destinations in the world for luxury homebuyers, and was also recently named by U.S. News & World Report
as one of the best places to live in the country. The company put Sarasota at number nine on a list of the 150 best places to live in the country, making it the only Florida city to land in the Top 10.“What makes this region so special is its duality,” said Joe Feinleib. “Downtown Sarasota’s thriving Waterfront District is filled with fine dining, cultural exhibitions, and dozens of luxury shops. If you head across the Ringling Bridge to Siesta Key or St. Armands Circle, however, a more intimate, seaside ambiance awaits. We look forward to playing off this duality with the design of Peninsula Sarasota- a condominium that is slightly off the beaten path within the Golden Gate Point neighborhood, but still within walking distance from the vibrant Sarasota lifestyle.”
Bringing Together a World-Class Development Team
Peninsula Sarasota, however, cannot come together with just two people. The team has commissioned some of the area’s best designers and architects to ensure a next-level design focused on relaxed living. Sarasota-based firm Hoyt Architects
will be creating a striking architecture plan that ensures every resident enjoys stunning corner-residence views. New York-based Karen Asprea Studios
will bring warmth and sophistication to the interior designs of the amenities and common areas. The team has also recently announced that Gilbane Building Company
will be the general contractor for the community.
Discover Life on Point at Peninsula Sarasota
Driven to excellence by its world-class design team, Peninsula Sarasota is destined to become a beacon for those who desire a relaxed Florida lifestyle. This stunning example of architectural excellence includes just 23 residences in total, with two distinct buildings joined by a shared amenity deck. The first building offers the rarely available full-floor residences, while the second is limited to just two residences per floor. The 3-bedroom and 3-bedroom with den floorplans range from 2,400 to over 3,000 square feet, with spacious floorplans designed around a great room with an expansive area for entertaining guests.This gated boutique lifestyle will be complemented by a full range of resort-style amenities
. An elevated pool deck will include a resort-style swimming pool and sun deck perfect for daytime leisure, while the entertainment areas with fire pits welcome evening gatherings of friends and neighbors. For residents focused on health and wellness, a state-of-the-art Fitness Center features the latest high-tech cardio and strength equipment. The development team also recently released plans for a Rooftop Resident Lounge, where glass railings, fire pit areas, and plentiful seating areas will enjoy expansive, unobstructed views of Sarasota Bay.
