Lifestyle preferences continue to shift and thereby create an increased demand for the experience that luxury branded residences provide. The inaugural independent Rosewood Residences project speaks to an increased demand for enriched living that combines the amenities, facilities and services of an ultra-luxury resort with the intimacy and comfort of a private home.
In recent years, Florida has seen an influx in demand for seasonal and permanent residences as secondary cities have been shown to provide smart solutions to the shifting lifestyle priorities and habits of today’s consumers. Located off the coast of Sarasota, Lido Key is no exception. Perfect for nature lovers, beach goers, fishing enthusiasts and boaters, the destination affords a quiet and relaxing way of living free of the heavy crowds that other coastal areas can draw. The isle’s picturesque stretch of town is filled with chic boutiques, fine dining establishments and casual eateries, while nearby Sarasota – recently ranked by US News & World Report as one of the Top Ten Places to Live in the U.S. – is known for its vibrant arts scene, beachy atmosphere and burgeoning food culture.
Once considered a playground for retirees, the city has transformed into one of Florida’s most dynamic destinations fueled by the area’s arts, including the Ringling Museum, and the Van Weizel performing arts hall, as well as the arrival of families and young professionals.
Rosewood Residences Lido Key, Rosewood’s first stand-alone residential project is situated along one of the country’s most beautiful beaches off the coast of Sarasota, Florida. The 65-unit condominium will be completed in 2025, with sales reservations to launch in December 2021, and will bring a new luxury lifestyle experience to the area and the United States at large.
