The DeSota is a Class-A mixed-use apartment tower in a highly desirable location in downtown Sarasota, Florida. The site encompasses just over one acre at the intersection of 2nd Street and Central Avenue, and is home to 180 residential units and approximately 15,000 square feet of retail. The site is located directly across the street from the downtown Whole Foods and is conveniently located within walking distance of Sarasota’s burgeoning arts district, central business district, restaurants and nightlife, and the Sarasota Marina. This project is unique to the area by offering high-quality, amenity-rich rental living in a condominium-dominant market. Carter secured an unprecedented zoning variance which allowed the site to build up to 200 units per acre. The current zoning limits new construction to 50 units per acre.
The project includes 270 spaces of secure, structured parking on-site and 180 apartments including a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms with a few penthouses. Amenities include a pool, club room and fitness center. The DeSota delivered in the summer of 2017.
