Worldwide construction leader Gilbane Building Company, together with developer Mark Kauffman and Partners, architect Jonathan Parks and local officials, officially broke ground on the Rosemary Square mixed-use project located on Sarasota’s Boulevard of Arts Tuesday.
Supporting the arts and catering to a hip urban lifestyle, the Rosemary Square project will bring a lively multi-unit residential, office and fine arts hub to the vacant tract, including retail and commercial office space, residential condominium units, a boutique theater and various fine arts.
Of the 50 multi-unit condos, 30 will be used by the Sarasota Opera to house their artists. The cluster will also encompass a town square, providing a natural outdoor gathering space for the public and professionals.
"Rosemary Square's convenient location to downtown Sarasota supports the economic growth of the area and local neighborhoods," Gilbane Building Company Vice President Tim Hensey said. "The timing is right for a project like this, and we are glad to be able to work with Mark Kauffman and Partners and Jonathan Parks on this substantial project."
Construction is expected to be complete by the summer of 2016.
Gilbane offers a full complement of construction and facilities-related services to clients across various markets, providing planning and integrated consulting, comprehensive management, close-out and facility management services. The company was founded in 1873 and operates over 50 international offices.
