Blvd. of the Presidents, on St. Armands Circle, to D&N Florida LLP, a Florida limited-liability company registered to David and Leslie Snyder, of White Plains, N.Y., for $1.6 million. ScoopDaddy’s will remain in its current location, according to owner Peter Beauchamp. The building has 3,131 square feet of air-conditioned space and was built in 1963.

The sale was the largest of the six real-estate sales recorded on Longboat, Lido, St. Armands and Bird keys during the week of Sept. 20 through Sept. 24 at the Sarasota and Manatee county courthouses.
