The Strand of Sarasota

The Strand 1

The Strand of Sarasota is a condominium complex tucked in the cozy nook on the southern banks of Whitaker Bayou northwest of downtown. Set for completion in 2020, it has quickly gained market attention shortly after its 2016 pre-selling launch owing to its superb concept.

Its developer, Jebco Ventures, envisioned the Strand as a redefinition of a coastal lifestyle. The canvas for Jebco’s plan for this condominium was the 9.5-acre for site of the old Whitaker Bayou Yacht Club on 1889 North Tamiami Trail. This location is notably just 800 feet from Sarasota Bay, a perfect pick for prospective buyers of Sarasota condos for sale who prefer a waterfront setting.

Thematic Variations

The Strand is set for a total of 116 condo units housed in three mid-rise buildings rendered in a coastal contemporary architectural style. The construction of this condominium is programmed for two phases, with 76 waterfront units built first and the rest of the 40 condos with garden or pool views constructed next.

Notably, the Sarasota and Atlanta-based Jebco is also behind the planned Allure townhomes and the completed Vista Bay Point at the Golden Gate Point Peninsula, as well as the Q lofts in east downtown. The developer again tapped the award-winning Hoyt Architects for the Strand’s design.

Resort-style and Boutique Units

The Strand Resort-Style Interiors

Its blueprint for the Strand is that of a cluster of five-story contemporary condominium buildings aligned with the banks of Whitaker Bayou. Unmistakably boutique in their features, the waterfront condo units offer the luxury of space and breezy balconies providing remarkable views of the bayou. Perfect for entertaining as well as day-to-day living, each unit also flaunt a gourmet kitchen with handcrafted finishes.

Resort-style amenities await residents of the Strand. The condominium complex comes with a gated entry, and the developer is meticulous in the preservation of the lush, shady trees within the property.

In addition, this development provides recreational activities in its trail and boardwalk, swimming pool, fitness center and dog park. Likewise all set at the Strand are 47 boat slips as well as a kayak/paddleboard launch area. The bayou adjacent to the Strand not only provides refreshing views but also deep water allowing unobstructed access to Sarasota Bay.

Endearing Neighbors

Even more fascinating, the Whitaker Bayou is a historic neighborhood named after William Henry Whitaker, Sarasota’s earliest settler, who pioneered commercial citrus farming in the state and cleared a path that eventually evolved as the Tamiami Trail. The Whitaker Bayou neighborhood now consists of a charming mix of Old Florida style homes and rebuilt houses with a modernist flair just like the Strand’s condo buildings.

The condominium also has excellent neighbors in the Museum Area just north across the bayou. This area is host to impressive, stately residences in sprawling sites, as well as smaller, well-maintained homes on quiet streets. Its residents include some descendants of the earliest local settlers, in addition to young professionals, artists and writers drawn by nearby cultural establishments.

Ringling Museum of Art

These local hubs of arts and culture include the Ringling Museum of Art, the Asolo Repertory Theatre and Sarasota Ballet. The Museum Area is likewise home to the New College of Florida, the Ringling College of Art and Design, and the University of South Florida that all provide an added lure to Strand condos for sale.
