Recent Developments in Longboat Key

The weather is absolutely beautiful here on Longboat Key. Real estate activity on the island is on the upswing like everywhere else all over the world. We have already seen transporter trucks delivering cars in early October! Internet hits are steady on all my properties. As we head into season, activity has been spiking. My websites are being refreshed and I am receiving more leads.

Recently Longboat Key made headlines in the Sarasota Herald Tribune Business section which you can read here:

“The Resort at Longboat Key Club has earned the No. 12 spot on a list of Top 40 Florida Resorts released by the 2013 Conde Nast Travelers Readers’ Choice Awards.

This year marks the first time the Longboat Key Club has attained the Top 40 list for Florida resorts. The Ritz-Carlton Sarasota also made the 2013 list, taking the No. 28 spot.”

This is fantastic news as it will bring more people to the area. This is how Arvida helped grow our area.

We’re seeing signs of growth and new life on the Island and the mainland as the revised Longboat Hilton expansion plan was submitted this week, and you can read about it here: http://www.lbknews.com/2013/09/23/revised-longboat-hilton-expansion-plan-submitted-this-week/

There is also construction underway for a brand new Luxury Condo “Infinity” to begin construction:

““Buyers are in the market for new product,” said Randy Moore, managing partner at Crossgate. “When you look at Longboat Key, you don’t have much in the way of development on an annual basis.”

If Infinity — with units now listed for a combined $37.3 million — proceeds as planned, it would be the island’s first residential project since the 29-unit Positano condo was completed in 2006.”
