What is it exactly that moves people to move to Florida? The idea of spending a winter enjoying temperatures at a balmy 72 degrees appeals to many. But Florida’s financial benefits, such as the lack of state tax and a new amendment, are highly regarded by homebuyers as well.
It’s well known that Florida doesn’t apply a state tax – which entices many. Not only is Florida one of the few states that doesn’t apply an income tax, it also reaffirms this in its state Constitution, under Article VII. Furthermore, the State of Florida doesn’t tax residents and citizens’ incomes under the Florida Income and Inheritance Taxes amendment.
While homestead exemptions don’t apply to condominiums, Floridian lawmakers have found a way to save those who own them on their taxes through Florida Amendment 2. It helps to preserve a portion of the ‘Save Our Homes’ Amendment that allows for a cap on tax increases up to 10%. It passed in 2018.
Florida homebuyers are constantly in search of a condominium that’s affordable, stylish, and in a great location. And Sarasota is the place. The artful atmosphere that the area possesses bleeds into the living spaces here, ensuring that homebuyers have a variety to choose from. However, out of the many Sarasota condo residences, one stands out from the rest – BLVD Sarasota. It’s location between the Sarasota Bay and the Rosemary District puts future residents between waterfront views and the action and activity of Downtown Sarasota. Amenities such as a rooftop zero horizon swimming pool, a wine cellar with a tasting room, the esteemed Beach Bistro sister restaurant on the first floor of the condominium tower, and a Pet Lawn area only serve to increase the value. Despite its amenities and its amazing space alongside the Sarasota Bay, BLVD Sarasota residences start at $1.9 million.
Florida has plenty of appeal to homebuyers, especially those coming from out of the state. From its beaches to its monetary benefits, there’s plenty of opportunity for future homebuyers here. One of the best opportunities is at BLVD Sarasota, the condominium tower in the middle of it all. Here there are only 49 residences for homebuyers to take advantage of before the move in date in Spring of 2020, and many are already sold. With little inventory available in this market, it’s selling out quickly.
BLVD Sarasota, a luxury condominium project, is almost complete! Located in the core of Downtown Sarasota, it sits on the southeast corner of Boulevard of the Arts and Tamiami Trail. It has brought an exciting energy to the city’s vibrant arts scene that Sarasota has never seen before. BLVD is ideally located on the famed Boulevard of the Arts, in the heart of downtown in the culturally rich Rosemary District.

Head to Sarasota’s downtown area, and within minutes, you’ll be surrounded by art, boutique stores, and unique dining experiences. That’s how you know that you’re in the Rosemary District. In 1884, a land surveyor named Lewis Colson arrived with coworkers from the Florida Mortgage and Investment Company to what would later become Sarasota and collected vital data. Come 1885, Colson decided that he liked the area so much that he would live there. What came after that was a cultural renaissance, forged by the art, music, and dance of the locals.
The eclectic downtown district is where chefs show off their skills with wide-ranging ingredients, where artists show off their skills with splashes of color, and the waterfront sparkles with the light of the sun. But what skyrocketed this distinct downtown to the top of everyone’s ‘to visit’ list has to do with the district’s history.
Redevelopment of the Rosemary District began with the Rosemary District Plan, which restructured the area into a mostly residential zone. The addition of shops and restaurants, combined with the creation of residential housing in an area known for its artistic and cultural offerings has brought many people to the area. Even today, the Rosemary District continues to evolve, replacing worn-out fixtures with modern ones, revitalizing historical buildings, and adding new luxury residential offerings such as BLVD Sarasota.
The most exciting new addition will be quite dramatic. The Bay, located directly on Sarasota Bay adjacent to the Van Wezel performing arts center, will be one of the finest outdoor parks and recreational complexes in the country. The Bay will serve as Sarasota’s social centerpiece incorporating a variety of activities for the entire family. Festivals and concerts will be held at the outdoor amphitheater continuing the city’s legacy of arts and entertainment. Couples can set out for a romantic night on the town dock their boat at The Bay. Head to the Municipal Auditorium and the Art Center Sarasota or to the highly acclaimed restaurants that dominate the Rosemary District. The Bay is not the only big thing coming to the area. Keep your eye out for the new Quay Sarasota–an upcoming shopping, residence, business, and lifestyle center located adjacent to the new Westin Sarasota.
Even more exciting, BLVD Sarasota, with just 49 luxury condominiums, is currently under construction leading the renaissance of the area. It has brought an exciting energy to the city’s vibrant downtown arts district that Sarasota has never seen before, with the new Bay and Quay projects right around the corner.
