We like to be the first to tell you about new and notable happenings downtown, and the official opening of the Auteur sales center certainly is one to pay attention to! The ultra-luxury building, which is being developed by the same team that brought us Beau Ciel downtown and Orchid Beach Club, Aria, and En Provence on the barrier islands of Lido and Longboat, is truly not to be missed. We LOVE the chic and glam sales center itself, for starters, and the floor plans are unlike anything we have downtown now.
Allison at The View From The Top has just had the pleasure of working with one of the very first buyers of Auteur to make a reservation. Right now the building is available for reservations ($50k down for all but the highest floors, which command a deposit of $100k) and it is expected that these will be converted to contracts in mid-to-late summer. Auteur is expected to be delivered in 2022 but, for those who are planning ahead for their next move, now is the time to get in!
Auteur will be a 216’ tower with a projected 56 units priced from just under $2,000,000 to more than $3,500,000. Residents of Auteur and residents of downtown Sarasota alike will benefit from the developer’s involvement in the community: when originally proposed to have over 85 units, the community of Sarasota voiced concerns. The developers listened and reduced the number to 56, and by reducing the number of units, the builders were able to both set the structure back further from the street – adding aesthetic value - and increase the size of each home to an average width of 75 feet, something not commonly found in condominiums at any price point (even many single-family homes are on lots of a smaller width than this!). Each residence will have a spacious, open floor plan and panoramic views of Sarasota Bay.
Four floor plans are available, ranging from 2915sq’ to 4219sq’
All feature approximately 500sq’ of terrace
Auteur will be located at 1100 Boulevard of the Arts on the 1.25-acre site next to the Hyatt Regency Sarasota. The Hyatt parking garage will be torn down to accommodate the structure, and future parking for the hotel is incorporated into the plans for the building, though hotel and resident parking will remain decidedly separate. The close proximity to all of the current amenities of downtown and future The Bay project are a major draw for the building, especially since pedestrian overpasses at 41 are part of the plan! ;-)
The features and benefits at Auteur are extensive and just exude the modern style of luxuriousness that discerning buyers today are seeking. Coded access elevators will deliver owners to private foyers and interiors created by world-renowned designers. Walls of glass span multiple rooms to create sunlit spaces where high ceilings and HUGE terraces add to the overall elegance of each home. Kitchens come equipped with Sub-Zero® and Wolf® appliances.. and of course, each residence will be pre-wired with the latest smart home technology. Two sides of the Auteur building are expected to feature a vast assortment of fitness, social and general recreational opportunities.
Other amenities owners will enjoy:
Attentive concierge staff
Tropical pool overlooking Sarasota Bay
Resort-style heated pool, spa and shade cabanas
Two assigned parking spaces per residence
Fitness center, message therapy, steam showers and yoga studio
Fenced pet play area and pet grooming facility
This is an addition to downtown that we at The View From The Top are seriously excited about and we think you will be too!
