With the exception of a couple of historic districts in Northern Florida, residential architecture in the Sunshine State has not favored townhouses too much; instead, apartment complexes and condominium towers have dominated urban living. Things are changing, however, in Downtown Sarasota, where renowned developer Icon Residential is working on revitalizing the Main Street area just east of Washington Boulevard.
The Artisan on Main project will breathe new life into a section of Downtown Sarasota that is just now being redeveloped. A couple of shopping centers, office space and a gas station are among the current proposals, but the most interesting is the Artisan townhouses to the north of Payne Park.
Instead of a condominium tower, Artisan on Main will offer 37 townhouses that are actually part of Downtown Sarasota instead of siting behind security gates. The modern architectural style of Artisan is being welcomed by urban planners who believe Sarasota is ready for something new.
Independent entrances, quiet sidewalks, manicured landscaping, discreet parking, balconies, and a private rooftop terrace are some of the attractive features that Artisan will offer to lucky buyers who acquire one of these four-bedroom townhouses, which are being priced under $425K.
Icon Residential has a solid track record of developing luxury communities in Tampa and Sarasota; Artisan on Main will not be an exception to this rule. Every community completed by Icon Residential has appreciated in terms of value very quickly. The novelty of townhouses built in the modern style and just blocks away from the arts and culture district of Downtown Sarasota will likely lead to faster value appreciation at Artisan.
Everything from Whole Foods to Regal Cinemas and from the McCurdy’s Comedy Theater to the pubs of Ringling Boulevard is located near Artisan on Main. Driving to Siesta Key Beach takes less than 15 minutes. In 2017, Artisan is the most attractive real estate opportunity in Downtown Sarasota.
