New Luxury Tower Planned for Golden Gate Point

Golden Gate PointAnother new luxury condominium tower is in the works for exclusive Golden Gate Point.

Replacing what was initially proposed to be the Allure townhome project on the same site, Evolution is planned as an eight-story, 20-unit tower, along with a rooftop terrace at 111 Golden Gate Point. Residential units will range from 2,071 square feet to 3,519 square feet for penthouse residences, and the condos are expected to retail between $1.3 million and $3+ million.

The 0.83-acre parcel is the largest remaining open lot in the waterfront residential district, located west of downtown near the John Ringling Causeway.

The developer filed an application with Sarasota officials on the tower late last month, according to a story in the Sarasota Observer, sister paper of the Business Observer.

Designed by DSDG Architects LLC, Evolution will offer each residence floor-to-ceiling windows, large terraces and a private garage. Evolution will have first level parking –  42 spaces — two per unit, and an additional two guest spaces.

An on-site sales office, say the project developers, is expected to be open by the end of 2018, where guests can also reserve pre-construction units. The project is expected to break ground in the first quarter of 2019

 “We’ve had an eye on this beautiful lot, the largest remaining redevelopment opportunity on Golden Gate Point, for quite a while and now is the perfect time to convert the space into luxury homes,” says WB Golden Gate Point LLC Principal Wojciech Zukiewicz in the statement. “We’re very excited to be working with DSDG Architects to create something truly unique for the Sarasota luxury landscape.”

Golden Gate Point has seen a surge of new construction in recent years. Until the 1990s, the peninsula was covered with small, two-story rental apartment buildings, but most have been torn down to make room for luxury high rise projects.
