Revolutionary Co-Workspace Introduced by Kolter Urban at Bayso
Posted on April 14, 2021
2020 will forever be a year that transformed the way we live our daily lives. The prolonged focus on social distancing and health and wellness has had a positive impact, creating new priorities for families of all types and sizes. Today, community developers, including Kolter Urban, are responding quickly to the market’s demand for innovative new lifestyle amenities.
Enter Kolter Urban, a leader in developing luxury lifestyle condominiums in prime destinations throughout the Southeast. Bayso Sarasota is their newest property in Downtown Sarasota offering 149-residences. The 18-story tower is the latest addition to Quay Sarasota and at the core of the community’s vision is the goal to create a private residential sanctuary that celebrates a vibrant, healthy lifestyle.
Bayso is experiencing high demand from seasonal and year ‘round residents alike. Many of the prospective homebuyers appreciate the walkability and excitement of living at the epicenter of Florida’s Cultural Coast, but they also have an interest in remote work environments. “A new market has emerged for many of our urban locations, including Downtown Sarasota,” says Ed Jahn, Senior Vice President for Kolter Urban. “We’re seeing many people moving to the area who are actively working across the country from a remote work environment. Others, who are partially retired, are using technology to stay engaged in their business or family.”
The emerging trend was shared with SB Architects and the amenity plan was enhanced to include an innovative Co-Workspace within the building. “Residents need more than the traditional conference room or business center,” says David Arent, Kolter Urban Senior Project Manager. “The Co-Workspace we’re creating at Bayso will provide ample room for multiple residents to utilize the space on a regular basis without sacrificing space within their home for a dedicated office. It also allows homeowners to mentally separate business from their residential space, yet still have the convenience of working from home.”
In addition to the need for flexible work environments, homebuyers are also seeking locations that allow for indoor and outdoor living. Bayso’s elevated pool, Splash Lounge, Club Room and Fitness Center are a good start, but the design of the residence interior has proven equally important to homebuyers.
Bayso’s residences include wide terraces that open through floor-to-ceiling glass doors providing plenty of natural light and fresh air while staying at home, and the community’s location adjacent to the Sarasota Recreational Trail offers an inviting way to get out an enjoy the surrounding neighborhood and waterfront. Walking, biking and jogging in picturesque areas close to home are all among the top priorities identified by homebuyers migrating to Florida.
Bayso’s Co-Workspace and other amenities are now on display through visual renderings on the community’s website BaysoSarasota.com. The luxury residences are priced from the $800,000s, and range from 1,600 to just under 4,000 sf of living area. An architectural scale rendering and full-size model kitchen are on display in the Sales Gallery recently opened in Premier Sotheby’s office in Downtown Sarasota.
