Downtown Sarasota Real Estate Update October 2013
Downtown Sarasota Offers Urban Lifestyle
Several years ago, Barbara Corcoran featured Sarasota on the Today Show as being the no. 1 Best Place to Buy a Home. Sarasota's sophistication, as a city offering an urban lifestyle, was the key reason for this accolade. New buyers arrive on the scene each time our city is touted by the national press, and we are more than pleased to reiterate Sarasota's astounding downtown attributes.
The downtown area is a great walking neighborhood where its residents live, work and play from the spectacular Bayfront to charming Main Street. Whole Foods, the new downtown Publix, shops, galleries and restaurants are within walking distance from many downtown residences. You'll find intriguing specialty shops, galleries, restaurants on Main and Palm Avenue to keep you wandering for hours.
The opera, ballet and symphony in Sarasota are frequented by residents and visitors of downtown Sarasota condos. The location of the inner city to beaches, water activities and cultural venues is extraordinary. In the last few years, newer condominiums have been built featuring top-of-the-line amenities that draw buyers seeking a luxurious and convenient lifestyle. Check out 1350 Main, One Hundred Central and the Alinari. Plaza at Five Points and the Savoy, as well as the Ritz Carlton Residences, which all emulate the sophisticated surroundings desired by luxury real estate buyers.
The beaches of Siesta Key, Lido Key and Longboat Key Beach are all a short drive from downtown Sarasota. For additional shopping, world famous St. Armands Circle is within 5 minutes of the city. Restaurants, cafes and bistros on the Circle offer excellent cuisines of choice.
