Groundbreaking was held in Sarasota this morning, for the Vangauard Lofts, located on Fourth Street.
Tetra Terra Development, architects Michael Halflants and John Pichette, and officials from Crowley Services, Inc.held a ground breaking ceremony on May 19, 2015 to resemble the start of the Construction.
Located in the Rosemary District, Vanguard Lofts will have six townhouses,with defined architecture by Halflants + Pichette. Prices are from the $649,000s to the $849,000s. Developer, Kevin Bryon stated that he may wait to sell the last two units until building is complete in anticipation to sell for higher prices. One unit might even be entered into the 2016 BIA Parade of Homes.Halflants used soft woods to delineate the units within a modernist building. "People want to be able to recognize from the street that 'this is my unit, this is where I live,' " he said. "It is a nice way to soften it up and make it more accessible." Bryon is looking for more land, but Halflants said most of the empty land in the Rosemary District is "accounted for."
