The Vue is a high-rise condominium which has dramatically altered the skyline of downtown Sarasota with its impressive structure rising on 1155 North Gulfstream Avenue, and the corner of North Tamiami Trail (U.S. 41).
The Palm Beach-based Kolter Group is the developer of this new downtown landmark, which not only enriched the selections of Sarasota condos for sale, but it’s development, which wound up in the latter half of 2017, came in tandem with the construction of the 255-room Westin Hotel right next to the Vue’s residential tower.
Built 18 stories high like its sister hotel, the Vue stands out with its elegant contemporary architectural design. This condominium delivers a strong and bold statement via its modern cubist construction of glass and steel, reminiscent of the renowned Sarasota School of Architecture.
The fresh contemporary look which the Vue contributes to Sarasota’s artistic vibe has not escaped notice from industry pundits. This condominium was adjudged as the 2016 Building of the Year by a panel of experts that SRQ Magazine annually convenes to honor the shakers and movers of the city.
Occupying a three-acre site with the Westin, the Vue sits facing Bayfront Park and the iconic statue “Unconditional Surrender.” This condominium has a total floor area of 350,000 square feet subdivided among its 140 residences, the building’s terraces and parking podium.
Elements of Fine Living
The Vue’s entrance is through the podium’s second level, where the splendid bay view provides an inspiring welcome to the condominium’s residents. The Vue’s amenities are also located at this arrival area, and the facilities therein are truly pleasing, even to the most discriminating searchers of Sarasota condos for sale.
The Vue’s second-level podium houses more than a sitting area for greeting and entertaining visitors and friends. It also has a club lounge, a board room for meetings and special functions, and a fitness center.
Outside facing the bayfront, a resort-style pool and hot tub are likewise inviting along with the poolside’s elevated view and a spacious sun deck with grill. Condo residents can also access the amenities of the Westin Hotel which opened July 2017 and offers a café, gourmet restaurant and a spa.
The Parking Podium of the Vue is designed with a high-tech access control system. More than just a garage, it also features secure storage, as well as the condominium’s dog park which occupies its rooftop.
Buying interest on Vue condos for sale has been quite strong since their market launch, and only a few choices were left even before the first residents occupied the building. Quickly pre-sold were the Vue’s standard two-bedroom condos with living areas of 1,640 square feet offered at the $900s.
Out of the property’s 140 residences, only three Vue condos for sale were on the market onwards of the second half of 2017. The choices left are priced between $1.4 million and $3.4 million, featuring floor areas ranging from approximately 2,300 square feet up to 3,415 square feet.
It’s no surprise that the Vue has immediately won the prospective buyers of Sarasota condos for sale. Besides the coveted location of the condominium and its outstanding features, the residences in this property are a definition of opulent living.
Each Vue condo flaunts free-flowing layouts, spacious master bedrooms, floor-to-ceiling glass walls, and modern kitchens. These residences further impress with their designer finish throughout and expansive terraces that offers marvelous bayfront views, a domain which the Vue condominium is now very much a part of as well.
