How a Bolivian developer chose Sarasota to build a 16-story hotel and condo tower

Rodrigo Trepp has been involved in the construction of 13 high-rise buildings in Latin America, but his next development project − and first in America −will be built in Sarasota.

Trepp is leasing about 2,000 square feet of office space off Orange Avenue in Sarasota and opened a sales gallery on Main Street for the 35 condo units available in the 16-story mixed use downtown development called SOTA.
