The Grande at the Ritz-Carlton Residences Condos for Sale – Sarasota

The Grande is the third in a trilogy of condominium towers banner to the luxury Ritz-Carlton lifestyle in downtown Sarasota. This new tower is set for construction in spring 2017 and follows up on the upscale condo living that Ritz-Carlton Sarasota and Ritz-Carlton Residences brought to the north downtown bayfront in 2001 and 2003.

The Grande at the Ritz-Carlton Residences is located at 1121 Ritz-Carlton Drive a short distance west of its two predecessors. This new condominium is being developed by the West Palm Beach-based Kolter Group, which has also launched recently several other downtown Sarasota condos for sale nearby.

Classic Waterfront Tower

The new Ritz-Carlton residential tower is planned for 19 floors. For its design, Kolter hired the award-winning SB Architects of San Francisco. A waterfront theme forms as the foundation of the Grande’s conceptual design.
