Phoenix, 136 Golden Gate Point, Sarasota, Florida, 34236

Sarasota condos for sale in this area that juts out into Sarasota Bay are most coveted not only for their fabulous waterfront location but also for their proximity to the downtown. Bayfront condos started sprouting in the peninsula during the 1990s with Alta Mer and Golden Bay among the pioneers that preceded the construction of the Phoenix. Latter additions to the derby of Sarasota real estate in the locality included posh developments like La Bellasara, Majestic Bay, and Grand Riviera.
Subdued elegance in design differentiates the Phoenix from the more elaborate and grand condo developments in the peninsula. This condominium’s architectural style is simple but modern in appeal, eschewing the inspiration of Paul Rudolph, one of the gurus that emerged from the eminent Sarasota School of Architecture.
The clean lines and blue glass panels that comprise some of the prominent features of the condo not only have aesthetic appeal in the contemporary sense. The floor-to-ceiling glass panels of the Phoenix more than provide an appearance of a blue jewel to the building but also afford the condo residents refreshing views of their bayfront environment.

Among other fine features, these residences boast of spacious terraces, ten-foot ceilings, polished marble floors and two-car garages.
