Aria Condos for Sale – Longboat Key, Sarasota, Florida 34228


Aria is one of two high-end condominium developments in Longboat Key which started construction in 2014. This upscale property broke ground in August of that year, and its residences are expected to be finished in 15 to 17 months, thus further enriching the roster of luxury condos in the Sarasota real estate market.

A project of the Ascentia Development Group headed by prominent developer Jay Tallman, Aria is located at 2251 Gulf of Mexico Drive in a five-acre parcel known for the historic Villa am Meer estate home built during the 1930s. Ascentia and Tallman were also behind the development of the Vizcaya and En Provence, both of which are also exciting destinations for searches of luxury Longboat Key condos for sale. The Beau Ciel condo adjacent to the Hyatt Sarasota, The Founders Club, and the Orchid Beach Club on Lido Key likewise count among their previous projects.

Hallmarks of exclusivity


Aria joins the ranks of some of the most exclusive Longboat Key condos for sale with its blueprint for just sixteen residences within a four-story building. Each of these units flows from the front and back of this impressive building with a rounded modernist design.

The condominium has four distinct open floor plans measuring from 3,804 to 3,940 square feet with 10-foot ceilings and private elevator access. The first floor units feature extended terraces, while penthouse-level units draw attention to their expansive roof terraces. These choice condos have price quotes of about $4.2 million. Market quotes for other Aria units are in the $3 million range.

The Aria complex flaunts a park-like setting with its 300-foot beachfront sharing the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico coastline. A meticulous renovation of the property’s Villa am Meer converted this vintage home into the Residents Club, a beachfront retreat with lots of amenities. These facilities include a gathering room, a fully equipped guest suite, private dining area, caterer’s kitchen, wine cellar, and covered terrace with fire pit. Also near the beach is an elevated pool and spa thoughtfully provided with an overhead rain curtain.

Aria likewise boasts of a Wellness Center overlooking a lagoon which also forms part of the condominium’s grand design. Complete with men and women’s locker rooms and steam showers, this Center is equipped not only with fitness facilities but also include a massage and Pilates/yoga salon. A half-mile pathway across lushly landscaped gardens, plus a gated access secured by a high-tech monitoring system are features as endearing in the Aria complex.

Pivotal location


With its superb location along the Gulf of Mexico Drive, the Aria condominium is convenient to various points of interests which help sell Longboat Key condos for sale. Just across the complex, for instance, is the 410-acre Longboat Key Club and Resort with first-class facilities for golf, tennis and aquatic sports along with fine dining venues.

A short drive up north past the Infinity, the other Longboat Key luxury condo which also started construction in 2014, leads to the attractions of the historic Longbeach Village. This community traces back to the 1800s and is popular for its boat facilities and quaint seafood restaurants. It is also home to the Longboat Key Art Center and Design established in 1931as a brainchild of circus magnate John Ringling.
