Should there be a poll on downtown Sarasota condominiums which have achieved landmark status, Marina Tower would be a strong candidate. This high rise sits prominently at the corner of North Gulfstream Avenue and Cocoanut Avenue just across the boat docks of Marina Jack.
Marina Tower, in fact, is so prominent at the bayfront that circus showman Nik Wallenda chose it for an untethered tightrope-walk in 2013. From a rigging atop a crane positioned at the downtown’s iconic statue, Unconditional Surrender, he crossed a wire suspended 200 feet above the Sarasota Bay front to the condominium’s penthouse.
Superb Vantage Point
As Wallenda could surely attest, the views around Marina Tower are fantastic. However, performing a daredevil stunt isn’t necessary to enjoy the breathtaking views. This 14-story condominium has been designed perfectly to allow magnificent vistas of the bayfront from within the comforts of its residences.
Choice residences at Marina Tower sport three different covered terraces which afford spectacular scenery as far as Siesta Key and the Gulf of Mexico. Access to these terraces can be either from the living room and the bedroom.
The interiors of the Marina Tower residences for sale flaunt 10-foot ceilings that allow abundant natural light to filter in throughout the year. This airy ambience is complemented by open layouts with the living room overlooking outside views.
Exquisite Condominium Living
Built in 2001, this community is composed of 44 residences configured in 11 different floor plans. The smaller residences are designed with floor areas of 1,800 square feet, typically with two bedrooms. The larger residences including the penthouses provide anywhere between 1,940 and 5,800 square feet with either three or up to four bedrooms.
The amenities of Marina Tower include a heated pool, spa, sauna and a fitness center. Additionally, its residents can avail of common facilities such as a conference room, library, movie theater, social room and catering kitchen.
Concierge as well as valet services are available 24 hours in this condominium. Marina Tower is secured round-the-clock too, and garage parking is assigned to each resident owner.
The attractions around the community are plentiful and are Sarasota landmarks in their own right. For instance, next door is Marina Jack, which is known not only for its boat docks but also for its superb restaurant. The popular lifestyle hubs of downtown Sarasota and St. Armands Circle are all just minutes away from Marina Tower and make it the destination location that pull in luxury condominium buyers.
