The Beach Walk Condos for Sale – Longboat Key, Sarasota, Florida 34228

The Beach Walk

Further value appreciation looks likely for Sarasota condos for sale at the Beach Walk near the northern tip of Longboat Key. Besides its proximity to the various amenities already available in and around the barrier island, several projects and policy changes are underway which could significantly boost the marketability of many Longboat condos for sale, those at Beach Walk included.

Beach Walk is located just west of the Gulf of Mexico Drive, the main thoroughfare serving the 12-mile length of Longboat Key. A $19-million project is expected to get moving in 2015 to bury underground the overhead electrical cables and fiber optic wires along this road. In addition to improving the aesthetics with the removal of eyesore overhead cabling, wire undergrounding is also considered as safer than the overhead utility installations.

Improved public utilities and facilities

The Beach Walk

Locally, many developers of new residential projects now emphasize their wire and cable undergrounding to attract potential buyers of Sarasota homes for sale. Also increasingly becoming the standard in densely populated areas, underground wires and cables are especially suited for coastal areas such as Longboat Key. Burying cables below ground eliminates salt build-up on regulators of aboveground electric lines which over time can cause fluctuating electric service and power spikes.

A $2-million project to rehabilitate the 10-acre Whitney Beach Plaza right across Beach Walk is another plus factor not only for this condo but also for other Longboat Key homes for sale in the locality. Prior to this makeover, the deterioration of this strip mall was considered a blight in its neighborhood.

This has changed, however, as the 25-unit Whitney Beach Plaza is now much improved and attracting new tenants and more customer traffic. Its tenants now include a café, liquor store and a hair and beauty salon. More business additions can be expected as the locality is in an approved overlay district designed to encourage mixed-use development.

With this zoning in place, an idled bank and gas station near the plaza and could also be rejuvenated. Other possible additions include a kayak rental shop and a market or grocery store which could be an alternate shopping choice to the Publix Super Market at Bay Isle Parkway and the various merchants at St. Armands Circle south of Beach Walk.

Rare condo gems

The Beach Walk

Shopping for a unit at the Beach Walk, however, offers comparatively limited options as this property has just 19 townhomes and listings of Longboat Key condos for sale here can be rare. The Beach Walk residences have two to three bedrooms within spacious floor plans averaging about 2,500+ square feet.

A sales-listed three-bedroom Beach Walk home with a floor area of approximately 2,600 square feet can be priced in the high $900s. The condominium has a resort-type swimming pool, an expansive private beach, spacious private terraces and garages, among other amenities.

With the convenient corridor provided by the nearby Gulf of Mexico Drive, access is likewise convenient, either by driving or commute, to the surrounding amenities of Longboat Key and adjacent Anna Maria Island plus those at St. Armands and Sarasota downtown. Stations for both southbound and northbound trolley buses are only a short walk away from Beach Walk, thus adding to the allure of this condominium as a standout among Longboat Key condos for sale.
