Six of the Eight Residences at AQUA Have Closed, Including the Highest Priced Private Condominium Residence in Sarasota


SARASOTA, Fla. (Feb. 2, 2017) – Premier Sotheby’s International Realty today announced that six of the eight waterfront condominium residences at AQUA have closed. Included among these sales is the Grand Terrace Residence, the highest-priced condominium sale in Sarasota history at $7,790,000. Cheryl Loeffler and Joel Schemmel of the brokerage’s Sarasota-Downtown office continue to market the remaining two residences.


“This is an exquisite property and it's not surprising that it commanded the top sales price in the area,” said Cheryl Loeffler, sales associate with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty.”  “Golden Gate Point has become one of Sarasota’s most desirable locations.”


“Located on a 22-acre parcel of prime waterfront, the residence overlooks Sarasota Bay and is just moments from downtown’s chic restaurants, shops and galleries,” added Joel Schemmel, sales associate with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty.


Loeffler and Schemmel are top performers in luxury real estate in Sarasota and credit much of their success to the strength of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand.


The Grand Terrace Residence encompasses levels four and five of AQUA and offers 7,504 square feet of living space and 3,963-square-feet of terrace space, for a total square footage of 11,467. The closing price does not include the costs to combine the two floors and customize the residence.


Located on prestigious Golden Gate Point, directly on the waters of Sarasota Bay, AQUA has taken its place among Sarasota’s finest luxury condominium residences. Each Aqua residence offers breathtaking views of sparkling water, magnificent sunsets and the shimmering city lights of Sarasota’s skyline.


The tower’s world-class amenities include a full-time concierge, two private elevator entrances to each residence, enclosed private two-car garages, a temperature-controlled wine room with secured individual vaults, a Technogym fitness center and separate yoga studio and private massage and facial salon. Residents also enjoy exclusive access to a heated waterfront pool with ample shade, a waterfront putting green and private boat slips with lifts. The highly anticipated AQUA is moments from award-winning restaurants, shops and galleries. Enjoy nearby St. Armands Circle and Lido Beach.


In keeping with the heritage of the Sarasota School of Architecture, AQUA was designed by Guy Peterson | Office for Architecture of Sarasota, developed by Jonathan & Cynthia McCague and built by General Contractor BCBE Construction of Naples. Premier Sotheby’s International Realty is the exclusive sales and marketing firm for AQUA.
