Plaza at Five Points is a property development in Sarasota, Florida, which deftly mixes commercial establishments and residential units in one condominium complex. This two-pronged developmental approach is an apparent attempt to maximize the returns from the property’s downtown location.
This condo is located at 50 Central Avenue, right at the thoroughfare’s junction with Main Street which, as their names suggest, are host to the vibrant pulse of activity in the Sarasota downtown district. Fifty-two residences were incorporated into this condominium which was constructed in 2005.
The Plaza at Five Points condos are located from the eleventh to the seventeenth floor of the high rise; the business and commercial establishments are assigned from the ground to the ninth floor. Each of the residential floors is subdivided into eight units, except the topmost which holds four luxurious penthouses. These residences typically measure around 1,600–1,700 square feet for the smaller units which have two bedrooms and two bathrooms. An impressive penthouse in the condominium has three bedroom and three bathrooms in a total floor area of 3,300 square feet.
A walk-through in a typical unit in the condo unveils such features as gourmet kitchens alluring with their granite counter-tops and large balconies from which spectacular sceneries of the Sarasota Bay and the downtown are lavishly afforded. Even more luxurious appointments are offered at the penthouses with panoramic views at every room as well as top-of-the-line furnishings.
For a complete appreciation of this condo, some time needs to be spent on the tenth floor. This whole area is devoted to amenities available for the condominium residents. The facilities here include a club room for multipurpose use, featuring a wet bar, catering kitchen, and entertainment center.
Like a five-star resort hotel, the condo also has a swimming pool with sun deck, in addition to a library and a fully-equipped fitness center. Informal gatherings are ideal at the building’s rooftop deck where there is a cabana and barbecue grill. Movement within the high rise is a breeze with its four high speed elevators and one service elevator.
