Echelon on Palm To Bring 17 Luxury Condominium Residences to Downtown Sarasota- Reservations Underway

The Ronto Group of Naples, FL, announces Echelon on Palm, a new luxury condominium community that will be located in one of Sarasota’s most desirable downtown neighborhoods. Situated on tony Palm Avenue with neighboring art galleries and restaurants, the striking glass building was designed by Alcides Santiesteban, principal with Santiesteban & Associates Architects of Tampa, Florida.

Echelon on Palm will be an 18- story tower offering 15 full-floor residences of 4,155 square feet each, one half-floor residence of 3,079 square feet, and one 4,381 square foot two-level townhome. Each residence will have a private elevator entry and garage parking. Buyers will experience expansive bay and city views from terraces located on all sides of the building. Amenities include summer kitchens, a fitness center, yoga terrace, a residents’ clubroom, spacious pool area with spa, fire table and a roof top terrace for entertaining and stargazing.

Santiesteban, known for his local work including Aria, Longboat Key, The Tower Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota and The Ovation in St. Petersburg, says Echelon on Palm will enhance the downtown skyline with its use of soaring glass and curvilinear forms. “Residences at Echelon on Palm provide flexible open floor plans more typically associated with single family residences,” explained Santiesteban. “Expansive glass walls and oversized terraces allow for 360 degree views of downtown and the waterfront…we made sure to focus on the opportunity for indoor/outdoor living space which is so important to luxury buyers today.”

Located in the heart of downtown Sarasota, Echelon on Palm is just blocks from Burns Court and Main Street—offering residents convenient access to dining, cultural offerings and shopping.

“The Sarasota market is experiencing a resurgence of interest and excitement in 2015 so it’s the perfect time to create this one-of-a-kind community to complement our development portfolio,” said Anthony Solomon, Executive Vice President of The Ronto Group. “We are also thrilled to announce the opening of our sales office and to report the response to Echelon has been tremendous, with 50% of the residences reserved in just 4 weeks”
