Manatee, Charlotte & Sarasota Counties
s the fourth quarter gets underway, demand and development of commercial spaces on Florida’s Gulf Coast remains robust. From the renaissance of retail in the downtown Sarasota area, to the explosive growth in the Lakewood Ranch/ University Parkway corridor, the region is a flurry of commercial activity. As expected, the downtown Sarasota submarket experienced the strongest leasing activity during Q3 2016, led by The Herald-Tribune’s 27,909 SF relocation to the SunTrust Bank Building. Susan Goldstein of MS&C Commercial served as the leasing agent for this significant deal. Read on for more of the latest in the region’s commercial real estate market.

COMMERCIAL TRENDS & REPORTS Land & Development n
On October 6, the Sarasota County Planning Commission unanimously recommended the Sarasota County Board of Commissioners approve rezone petition 15-31. The proposed development would be located on 1,725 acres at Bee Ridge Extension and Clark Road. The applicant proposed 3,450 dwelling units within 9 separate neighborhoods and up to 300,000 square feet of commercial, retail and office.
Lakewood Ranch is currently the 5th fastest growing master planned community in the United States. With a goal of adding 1 job for every home sold, growth should be rapid.
The 5000+ residential units Watersedge Project is expected to begin construction in early 2017. The Players Theater will be at the center of the commercial development.
Lorraine Road will be completed between University Parkway and Fruitville Road in early 2017, easing the traffic situation in this rapidly growing area. Once this connection is complete, a Publix will begin construction at the northeast intersection of Lorraine Road and University.

South Tamiami Trail South Tamiami Trail is experiencing a continued renaissance, as new retail is added and older buildings updated. Projects including the renovation of Southgate Mall, the Berlin Patton law office and the new Square One Burger location all illustrate this sense of renewal. The expansion of Sarasota Memorial Hospital and the newly updated Pelican Plaza indicate the strength of development in this highly-trafficked area. With 55,000 cars traveling north and south every day on the trail, Tamiami will remain a coveted destination for commercial property investors.
Southgate Mall renovation
The Bradenton area commercial market continues to see positive gains as a result of increased land sales, while vacant office space is filling at a steady pace. 2017 is on track to be a record year of growth for the area, with several key developments taking place in and around its urban core. These include: n
A 9 story SpringHill Suites hotel slated for the downtown waterfront with restaurant and rooftop bar
Villages at Riverwalk is currently under construction on the edge of downtown Bradenton, which will house lofts over retail, apartment spaces and waterfront condos
“Connect Bradenton” — an innovative and exciting co-working and meeting space begins construction downtown in January 2017
Village of the Arts continues to grow at a record pace with new bakeries, coffeehouses, galleries and more opening into next year.
Venice Commercial real estate in Venice continues to grow, in particular the fast food and casual dining sector. Six new restaurants have been announced along the I-75 and Jacaranda interchange. Along the Hwy 41 corridor, the former Kmart plaza location has been sold to its adjacent neighbor, Benderson Properties. The plan is to continue adding retail and restaurant development to the center. Across the street, the former Albertson’s location is under consideration with several regional grocery chains seeking to find a foothold in the market. Developers are also awaiting decisions from the Venice and Sarasota hospital systems to decide whom is staying, relocating and/or building new within the South County area.
Spotlight on St Armand’s Retail It’s been an extraordinary year for retail on St Armand’s Key. An exciting lineup of new shops includes a Martha’s Vineyard favorite, Black Dog General Store, and just around the corner a soon-to-be announced clothing store originally based in Quebec. There is still availability on St. Armands, including brand new boutique spaces to be delivered in December. On the inner circle, lease rates have sustained their level at $70 plus per square foot. While the outlying spokes are still paying $55 per SF and up.
