More new apartment developments are working their way through the city of Sarasota's Development Review Committee.
Developer GK Sarasota Venture is planning Artist Court, a nine-story, 139-unit multifamily building, including town houses, at 200 S. Washington Blvd. at the intersection of Adams Lane. The site is occupied by three one-story commercial buildings totaling 15,735 square feet on 1.39 acres. The applicant is proposing to transfer residential density from abutting parcels, which will require a joint-use agreement.
The property is among the downtown zoning districts over which the DRC has final approval authority.
Architectural drawings show a parking garage with an entrance from Golf Street at the north elevation adjacent to three floors of apartments facing south along Adams Lane. The garage is attached to a nine-story building. A rooftop amenity is shown above the parking structure.
Plans list one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments but no affordable or attainably priced units.
Joel Freedman of Freedman Consulting requested a partial sign-off on the project at the end of the comments session with staff, which was denied because of lingering solid waste and utilities issues. Artist Court can move forward once it receives final approval from the Development Review Committee.
