Ronto Announces Plans to Develop The Owen Golden Gate Point in Downtown Sarasota

The award-winning Ronto Group, in partnership with Wheelock Street Capital, announced it is developing The Owen Golden Gate Point on the bayfront in downtown Sarasota.  One of the last condominiums to be developed on Golden Gate Point, the gated, mid-rise boutique building will include just 29 residences on ten floors over two levels of parking.  Situated on a 1.18-acre site, the building’s design features four residences per floor plus one residence on the amenity level that will include an oversized terrace outfitted with planters and a fire pit and direct access to the community pool.  The residences, including four penthouses, will range from 2,266 to 3,073 square feet under air.  Framed by Sarasota Bay, and with generous terraces included with each residence, the gated Owen Golden Gate Point will be the ideal spot to capture gentle bay breezes and the ever-changing colors of Southwest Florida’s glorious sunsets.  The residences are fully customizable during the pre-construction phase of the project and extensive finish selections are available.  Owen Golden Gate Point is the only new downtown Sarasota building offering full customization for pre-construction buyers.  Secure parking under the building with two spaces per residence, private elevator foyer and secured bike storage are included.  Pre-construction pricing starts from $2.4-million.

Designed by MHK Architecture and Planning, Owen Golden Gate Point’s contemporary design will be awash in the neutral tones of the shore with gentle curves suggestive of the building’s setting on the Point.  The site encompasses the southern tip of the Point, gracefully arcing from east to west while providing partial bay and marina views from the residences.  Wide, light-filled floor plans with full-height windows will feature Ronto’s signature luxury finishes and features.  Sensitive to the comfort of each resident, Owen Golden Gate Point’s concrete block walls and ample airspace between floors will make noise transmission nearly non-existent.  The building’s amenities and common areas are being designed by Riley Interior Design Principal Carrie L. Riley, ASID.  The LRM Group at Premier Sotheby’s International Realty located at the Plaza at Five Points, 50 Central Avenue, Suite 110 in downtown Sarasota will provide brokerage services for the project.

The popularity of downtown Sarasota is stronger than ever.  With the growing number of high-end residences, the emergence of new restaurants, shops, galleries, workout facilities and spas, and the presence of world-renowned theater, opera, and ballet, as well as its location along a pristine bayfront, it is no surprise downtown Sarasota is often found on the nation’s “best places to live” lists.  Ideally situated in one of downtown Sarasota’s most cherished historic locations, the 22-acre Golden Gate Point peninsula’s smart, relaxed personality is distinctive and perfectly suited to a luxury lifestyle.  With its tree-lined sidewalks, brick pavered streets, gas lighted entry, and bayfront backdrop, Golden Gate Point is a peaceful neighborhood that is insulated from the hubbub, density, and congestion found in other downtown areas.  Urban dwellers appreciate Golden Gate Point’s easy access by foot, bike, car, or trolly to St. Armand’s Circle, the beaches, and the shopping, dining, and gallery venues that continue to proliferate in the Sarasota downtown district.  Protected sidewalks extend for miles in all directions, creating opportunities for an invigorating run, a peaceful walk with the dog, a trip to the marina or yacht club for fishing, boating, or dining.  Just across from the entry to the Golden Gate Point community are the Ritz Carlton & Westin Hotels, where one can indulge in a meal, a cocktail, a rooftop encounter, or a spa treatment.

Residents of Owen Golden Gate Point will enjoy a comprehensive array of on-property resort-style amenities.  In addition to its priceless amenity that is wrapped in its enviable location, Owen Golden Gate Point’s interior amenities will include a lobby reception area, a spacious Club Room with a bar and comfortable seating, a Board Room, and a Game Room outfitted with an assortment of table and arcade games.  A Fitness Center will offer state-of-the-art equipment, men’s and women’s locker rooms, a massage suite that will allow residents to invite their favorite massage therapist or simply stretch and tone in the generous spaces, a steam room, and a spa.  Residents may also invite personal trainers to work with them within the Fitness Center.  Outside, an expansive landscaped pavered amenity deck will include billowing palm trees and tropical container gardens, a saltwater pool with an infinity edge, an outdoor grilling area, a bocce ball court, and a spa that will be ideal for soothing aching muscles or enjoying a perfect moonlight plunge with that special someone.

Ronto has made reservations for residences at Owen Golden Gate Point available now.  Six of the 29 residences have been reserved to date.
