Gilbane Building Company Breaks Ground on New Mixed-Use Project
SARASOTA, FL — Gilbane Building Company joined Developer Mark Kauffman and Partners, Architect Jonathan Parks, and local officials to kick off the construction of Rosemary Square, a mixed-use project located along the Boulevard of Arts in Sarasota, Florida. The now vacant tract of land will become a vibrant area supporting the arts and creating a new, urban lifestyle.
The project, located along the Boulevard of Arts, includes retail and commercial office space, 50 multi-unit residential condominium units - 30 of those units will be used for housing for the Sarasota Opera to house their artists, a boutique theater, and fine arts. Located near core downtown amenities, the development will include a town square creating an outdoor focal point for residents, businesses and the public.
"Rosemary Square's convenient location to downtown Sarasota supports the economic growth of the area and local neighborhoods," said Tim Hensey, Vice President of Gilbane Building Company. "The timing is right for a project like this, and we are glad to be able to work with Mark Kauffman and Partners and Jonathan Parks on this substantial project."
The project, which is designed to complement the local neighborhoods in the downtown Sarasota area, is anticipated to be complete in summer of 2016.
