Another condo project is breaking ground amidst the many slated for downtown Sarasota, but unlike the 18-story waterfront, 65-unit project in the pipeline, this one is just five stories high and will be home to just four residences.

The boutique-style condo building will be situated on Golden Gate Point, the tiny peninsula in downtown Sarasota—which at the moment is hidden behind a little construction chaos at the base of Ringling Bridge, which is expected to wrap up this fall.

The ground floor of En Pointe at 509 Golden Gate Point will be dedicated to parking with two spaces for each unit–electric charging stations included.

Above that, each floor will be a 2,439 square-foot private suite with three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms and terraces. "The difference between the floors is, of course, the view," says Andrea Smith, the Coldwell Banker Realty agent leading sales. En Pointe will be situated on the inside loop of Golden Gate Point, "looking towards Marina Jacks," she says. The terraces have wood ceilings and glass railings that are all the rage with today's chic seekers.

So what's the cost to buy in En Pointe? 

The first floor unit is $2.65 million; the second floor is $2.9 million; the third floor is $3 million and the penthouse, on the fourth floor, is $3.2 million. 

The project is a collaboration between Nautilus Homes, Echt Architects and Angela Rodriguez Interiors. The look is midcentury modern-inspired, awash in the sandy gray colors of a coastal palette. The building is scheduled for completion in 2023. 

Its developer is Anthony Ambler from Ontario, Canada, who bought the 7,200-square-foot property in 2018 for $835,000.

En Pointe isn't the only condo project headed to the coveted downtown Sarasota neighborhood. The nine-story SIX88, with 10 residences starting at $2,488,000, is also scheduled for occupancy next year. In the current market, En Pointe's pricing almost seems like a deal–a penthouse with a 1,657-square-foot private rooftop terrace in the One 88 Residences on Golden Gate Point sold for $5.85 million last year. That's Sarasota for you.
