A New Mixed Use Tower Is Going to Change the Face of Main Street

East of Orange Avenue, Sarasota’s main drag seems to drop off into something that resembles less of a bustling downtown. But SOTA Hotel & Residences, scheduled to break ground this summer, may change that. We wrote about plans for the 16-storied mixed project last year while it was still awaiting final approvals from the City of Sarasota.

Now, it’s a sure thing.

The $115 million project “will elevate the second half of Main Street and tie up loose ends with the other, busier end of downtown,” says Rodrigo Trepp of Trepp Developments, which is heading up the project.
