Golden Gate Point, a 22 acre point of land 1 block from downtown Sarasota, is home to some of the most luxurious condominiums on the west coast of Florida. (The image below is a pdf. If you right click and choose save as, it will save on your computer.)
The above photo was before the streetscape project that was completed late in 2009. The project with brick streets and beautiful landscaping dramatically changed the character of the point.
Cedar Point, as it was known in the 20's, when Circus Magnet John Ringling owned the property has evolved in recent time to a luxury residential community. As recently as the mid 90's, GGP was still largely ignored, then new projects started developing.
Starting in the mid 90's first the Renaissance then Alta Mer, The Phoenix, and finally Golden Bay were built.
Recently Vista Bay Point, Grand Riviera, Majestic Bay and La Bellasara were completed.
In December(2005) the citizens of GGP voted for the city to undertake a streetscape improvement project for the neighborhood. Click the streetscape links to learn more about this significant undertaking.
