Developer Kolter Urban has launched virtual sneak previews of its planned 149-unit luxury condominium tower, Bayso Sarasota, via Zoom meetings with prospective buyers.
Bayso Sarasota will be adjacent to The Ritz Residences Sarasota, Kolter Urban’s luxury tower that is nearing completion before year end at the Quay. The Delray Beach-based company also developed two other recent high-profile downtown residential projects: the Vue and Mark, Sarasota.
It’s a soft “sneak peek” rather than a formal launch, says Ed Jahn, senior vice president in charge of sales and marketing, due to the challenges of launching a major project during the COVID-19 crisis. “Everyone is concerned with what our country and the world are dealing with right now,” he says. “We’re doing everything we can do to be being respectful of people’s needs, safety, wellness—both our buyers and our employees.”
A preview center has opened at the nearby Westin Hotel. Interested people can contact Gregg Center of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, who is representing Bayso for Kolter, at (941) 220-0828. Center will either meet by appointment with interested people in-person or offer a Zoom meeting to walk them through the project. He expects most people will opt to meet virtually.
Groundbreaking for Bayso Sarasota is expected in late 2020, with completion expected in 2023. Eleven two- and three-bedroom floor plans at 1,600 to 2,600-plus square feet will be offered, priced from the $800,000s. In addition, there will be seven penthouses of 2,500 to almost 4,000 square feet, priced up to just over $3 million. Among the amenities will be an elevated resort-style pool, fitness center, residents club room with catering kitchen, and private dog park.
