Downtown Sarasota and the Sarasota waterfront are no strangers to luxurious condominiums especially in the past couple years. Another now an elegant condominium tower is about to be added at a most luxuriously unique location.
The Grande at Ritz Carlton, a new 18-story luxury condominium tower is going to be built adjacent to the famous Ritz-Carlton hotel in Sarasota. The developer, The Kolter Group expects to break ground in the Spring of 2017 with construction expected to be completed in about 26 months. The Grande will provide an elegant waterfront lifestyle, extraordinary services and a full range of superb amenities; the kind of legendary service one expects when one hears the legendary Ritz Carlton name. The 72 three- and four-bedroom residences are expected to sell for between $2 and $5 million.
Kolter Group President & CEO Bobby Julien said in a statement “Our market research and recent experience have confirmed that there is strong demand for contemporary luxury residences, and we believe The Grande's combination of unique architecture, unparalleled amenities and exceptional service will satisfy the needs of the discriminating Sarasota buyer.” The tower will be built just east of the hotel with the building running north and south with dramatic waterfront views from the residences on the west side of the building.
Residences at The Grande will each have a private foyer and include a private elevator, elegant gourmet kitchens featuring large social islands and top-of-the-line appliances, 10-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glass, expansive great rooms, living rooms and dining rooms and spacious terraces, many with extraordinary waterfront views. Residents will also enjoy a rooftop pool with lush tropical foliage and private cabanas, a fitness center and “The News Room,” a casual lounge. A dedicated residential staff will deliver the best-in-class services you’d expected at a property of this caliber. Residents of The Grande will also have access to Ritz Carlton in-home dining and use of the restaurants, salon and spa at the Ritz Carlton Hotel.
Kolter Group is a recognized developer in Sarasota with several other projects. Along the bay front, the West Palm Beach-based company is building Vue Sarasota Bay, an 18-story, 141-unit condominium tower and a 255-room Westin Hotel at the corner of Tamiami Trail and Gulfstream Avenue. It is also developing The Mark, a mixed-use 12-story tower with 157 residences on State Street between Pineapple and Lemon Avenues. The Grande joins a number of new condominiums that are going up in Sarasota but most of those other developments are considerably smaller than the Kolter projects.
The sales office for The Grande opened this past June with pre-construction pricing in effect now.
