Citrus Residences, a new 12-unit condominium with additional ground-floor retail space in downtown Sarasota, has launched sales.

Developed by Mark Pierce of Pierce Contracting, Citrus Residences is the latest and final addition to the sightline on North Orange Avenue between Boulevard of the Arts and the existing Citrus Square project. Pierce has meticulously planned the sustainable, mixed-use development with a New Urbanist philosophy of human-scale, low-density and walkable communities in mind. The European-style architecture is a distinguishable addition to the downtown Sarasota cityscape.

Citrus Residences offers buyers the opportunity to live in downtown Sarasota’s own urban oasis. The European-style design, scaled down proportions, and charming courtyards and balconies hearken more to the quaint side streets of France, rather than a canyon of boxy, high-rise towers.

The concrete-block construction of Citrus Residences has been designed to resemble a row of unique terraced homes, with shops and restaurants on the ground floor, residences above. The commercial space allows for retail venues that will complement the urban lifestyle for residents and the public.

The residential units are noteworthy for their substantial space, 10-foot ceilings, double-hung hurricane windows, upgraded molding, ultra-quiet sound abatement, enhanced finishes and exterior solar lighting.

Residences range from one-bedroom units to a penthouse with outdoor living area. Currently, prices range from the low $300,000s for a one-bedroom and the low $500,000s for a two-bedroom to the penthouse, starting at $1 million. Commercial space is customizable to fit the needs of the business and the lifestyle of the community.
