Since Sarasota is already home to several Ritz-Carlton properties, you may be surprised to learn that there is another residential Ritz in development. The reason behind the most recent Ritz-Carlton is simple – there’s a high and growing demand for luxury homes as Sarasota’s popularity for both seasonal and full-time residences flourishes.

The newest Ritz-Carlton property will break ground at The Quay, an area bustling with mixed-use new construction projects that is quickly becoming a new Downtown hub. Formerly the site of a shopping center, The Quay is in an ideal location for both new homes and new businesses, and there are high-end shops and restaurants planned to complement the premium residential construction like the new Ritz-Carlton. This Ritz-Carlton will be very close to the most recent Ritz project situated along the boardwalk and completed in late 2020. These projects as well as the BAYSO residential complex currently under construction are spearheaded by the noted developer Kolter Urban, who was also the developer of the luxury projects VUE and The Mark.

So, what sets this newest Ritz-Carlton apart? Other than the exceptional location, these residences will offer uniquely spacious layouts and design standards that exceed the norm. The ceiling height for all residences will be at least 12’, with upper levels enjoying even taller heights. Floor-to-ceiling windows with these tall ceilings will showcase the incredible water views of the harbor and Bay and even the Gulf of Mexico beyond Lido and Longboat Keys. The 78 ultra-luxury homes planned in this building will range in size from 3,500 to 6,000 square feet, offering expansive layouts in the heart of Downtown. Of course, residents may expect the unsurpassed luxuries for which the Ritz-Carlton is known, including food, beverage, spa, and service amenities within their own homes. The onsite wellness center will include state-of-the-art equipment as well as steam rooms and plunge pools. Dining options will include both residential service through the hotel and access to the adjacent restaurant. The address will be within steps of Main Street and surrounded by enticing options for shopping and entertainment, including Sarasota’s popular arts venues and the waterfront Bay Park.

With elevated amenities and standard features that exceed even luxury norms, Sarasota’s newest Ritz-Carlton will be an exceptional addition to The Quay and to our premium new construction landscape. Learn more about this project in a dedicated video here, or get in touch with me for any questions:
