Downtown Sarasota Luxury Complexes

Downtown Sarasota Luxury Complexes

One of the more exclusive and rapidly growing upscale real estate markets in all of Florida is located right in downtown Sarasota – an area that I specialize in.
Over the past several years it has become a prime destination for wealthy buyers seeking luxury condos for sale – for all purposes including relocation, investment or vacationing.
Sarasota is renowned for its relaxing setting, thriving economy, vibrant artistic culture, nearby island getaways and historic landmarks. Its downtown allows for a lavish lifestyle, as it is home to a wonderful collection of restaurants, shops, and influential art galleries.
Thanks to the relative affluence and elegance of the surrounding area, downtown Sarasota has become a major area of focus for real estate development and investment.
It is now home to some of the most exclusive luxury condos and residential buildings in all of Florida, loaded with amenities such as waterfront locations with water views, modern décor, onsite fitness centers, meeting rooms, and much more.
Below is a quick guide to six of the most lavish residential buildings in downtown Sarasota, but if you have any particular questions please do not hesitate to email me at [email protected]


Situated on 1155 N. Gulfstream Ave., this breathtaking waterfront condo complex is a dream for any discerning buyer. With an exclusive location right in downtown Sarasota overlooking the Sarasota Bay, the VUE is a leisurely walk away from Sarasota’s best art and culture opportunities.

Another one of downtown Sarasota’s finest residences, the MARK is an upcoming condominium complex that offers full accommodations for living and “work & play” related services.
Located a stone’s throw away from Sarasota’s core shopping district at 1400 State Street, this luxury condo prides itself as one of downtown Sarasota’s most complete experiences in a world-class setting.
39 distinct floorplans are available with one-, two- and three-bedroom condos that range from 1,377 sq. ft. up to over 2,300 sq. ft. 13 lavish penthouses will also be available at The Mark from 2,139 sq. ft. to 2,940 sq. ft.
Just a few building amenities include an elevated resort-style pool with private cabanas, a boardroom for residents to have business meetings, a modern kitchen and a club bar complete with all the accouterments.


As one of downtown Sarasota’s premier developments, Vanguard Loft at 1343 4th Street was designed to keep residents connected to their surroundings by providing a sufficient amount of live/work lifestyle in a very walkable setting. This development incorporates a lot of modern architectural elements including space management and minimalist elegance.
Facilities include unrivaled fitness facilities on the second floor, dedicated conference room and media room on the third floor, views of downtown Sarasota and rooftop terraces.
An offering here that is unique is the Vanguard Loft’s Garden Unit (only 3 units of this type). It’s an incredible floor plan with 2 bed/ 2 baths, private 2 car garage, home office, floor to ceiling windows, sidewalk entry, private yard and many other amenities.


If you need a place to live as you search for the right Sarasota real estate properties. Right in the middle of downtown Sarasota at 1415 2nd St, the DeSota is made up of new luxury rental apartments that offer some very modern and creatively designed one, two and three-bedroom accommodations.
Units are equipped with features such as ceramic tile showers, European cabinets, frameless shower doors, energy efficient appliances, floor to ceiling glass, and water views on half over of the units, with all of them having balconies.
Residents will also have access to a secure parking space, electric charging outlets for cars, a firepit lap pool and outdoor kitchen. Drink your morning coffee as they watch the sailboats or a quick stroll to a seaside farmer’s market. Some of the attractions and facilities available nearby include a dry-cleaning service, a large-scale Whole Foods, coffee shops, the downtown area and multiple parks.
But if you want a space to call your own, contact me and let’s start the search for your dream home in Sarasota.
