There are also concierge services for everything from dog walking to dry cleaning. No more waiting for deliveries, or having to schedule maintenance and repairs around your busy schedule.

The open concept Club Bar & Lounge

We want you to seize your day, every day. Bruce and Josh Weiner, owners of The Longboat Group and developers of the amenity-rich CitySide Apartments, are taking it one step further with The Bayside Club. The Bayside Club, a Downtown condominium complex, has an incredible array of amenities, but owners will also have all the hotel services that go along with resort-vacationing. CitySide has gained notoriety for its lifestyle and sense of community. For this reason, its apartments are in the highest demand of any building in the area. During late-night Bayside Club planning sessions, Bruce and Josh consistently asked themselves the question, “What can we do to ensure that our residents spend even more time doing the things they love?,” and used the answers to develop The Bayside Club concept.

BAYSIDERS WILL ENJOY A RESORT STYLE POOL

with beach-entry where they can lounge, be served a healthy lunch, and even order a cocktail or two. The pool’s lap lanes make for a refreshing way to get your exercise. Or, just find a cabana to kick-back with friends and enjoy some good conversation.

Catch bay breezes from the Rooftop Terrace

In The Bayside Club’s north courtyard, residents will find a serene Zen lanai and pavilion. The charming pavilion will be surrounded by water features that make you feel as if you are on a floating island. Residents can enjoy indoor/outdoor yoga classes on the pavilion’s floating deck or take in a lecture on various wellness topics as part of The Bayside Club’s outdoor lecture series. Afterwards, curl up with a book or Kindle near the fire pit and soak in the peace. Universal internet means you can use your devices in any corner of the building. Each Bayside Club residence is wired for a sophisticated smart home system which allows residents to monitor happenings in their home from anywhere in the world. When out-of-town guests arrive, residents can remotely open the front door, set the a/c, and even play some relaxing music to make them feel at home. The luxurious culinary studio and lounge.

The Bayside Club’s panoramic rooftop deck is an ideal spot to sip on a glass of wine while absorbing an iconic Sarasota sunset over the bay. After sunset, head down to the Colson lounge and culinary studio to prepare dinner with friends or play a few rounds of poker. The Bayside Club boasts a state-of-the-art gym, as well as a fitness studio, with options for solo workouts or group classes such as Zumba, all-levels yoga, and Pilates. May Lane, a private roadway located adjacent to the Bayside Club, will be transformed into a treelined café street where neighbors will meet for breakfast, coffee, and people watching. The Bayside Club’s private club lounge and bar will open up to May Lane, giving residents the opportunity to relax in an exclusive club environment with friends – in a place where the bartender knows your name. At night, May Lane will also be closed regularly for farmers markets, block parties, and concerts – like the first Music On May Lane concert that occurred in March. The Bayside Club is also working with Mark Caragiulo, on a new restaurant concept that will include a coffee bar and general store with prepared foods for takeout. Other retail-like spa services are planned for May Lane with at least two more spaces to serve the needs of the neighborhood. (No high-end jewelry stores need apply.)


Relax on the Zen Lanai and Pavilion.

A SUNRISE-TO-SUNSET LIFEST YLE

Club members are not just purchasing real estate, but investing in an active lifestyle that includes enriching excursions, fun social gatherings, and learning new skills and hobbies. Baysiders have golf and tennis privileges at nearby clubs, and access to nearby beaches. There will be daily activities on and off the complex — members can enjoy concerts only blocks away and even some chartered bus excursions to sporting and cultural events throughout the Gulf Coast. Each day, residents can choose their own adventure. They may choose to relax solo in the privacy of a pool cabana or on the rooftop deck. Or, sweat it out with friends in a group fitness class, refresh, and then walk over to the Van Wezel for a show.

Let us take care of things for you. The Club lounge opens to the pool courtyard.

WHO IS A BAYSIDER?

The Bayside Club is just one block from the Bayfront park, soon to be developed into a world-class bayfront environment, and a five minute power walk or ten minute leisurely stroll to downtown Sarasota’s eclectic Main Street. A Baysider is someone who wants to live downtown and take advantage of all that Sarasota has to offer; lovely restaurants, enriching cultural events, energizing music, and more are just blocks away. A Baysider would gladly avoid wasting time searching for parking spots and, instead, take the friendly Bayside Club shuttle into town for shopping, to St. Armands for lunch, to the beach, to the country club for golf or tennis, or out for a night on the town.

Welcome to the family.

A LEA DING P IONEER A N D VIS IO N ARY,

Bruce Weiner proudly sits at the helm as Founder and CEO of The Longboat Group, a property development and management company which has gained recognition in Sarasota based on the success of CitySide. Weiner has now set his sights on taking downtown Sarasota condo living to a new level. Bruce says, “I have been coming here for 37 years, Josh was two years old on our first trip, and five years old when we bought our first property here at Beachplace on Longboat Key.” His partner in this venture is his son, Josh, who heads up the day to day operations of the business. Josh thrives in dreaming up new ways to enhance the resident experience at Longboat’s developments. CitySide has pioneered high-service apartment living in Sarasota including complimentary fitness classes, monthly socials, Saturday breakfast, and even an adventure vehicle to take residents on paddleboard and kayak excursions. Both Josh and Bruce are proud that they can take the service to another level at The Bayside Club. Over the course of the year, Bruce, Josh and the Longboat team developed Bayside’s lifted concept – continually bouncing ideas off each other and escalating the Club’s programs – all the while asking each other, ‘What do our residents want?’ ‘What can we do more of?’ “We’ve got an amazing team that we’re really fortunate to have started here at CitySide,” says Josh. “Everything we’re doing now…we’re taking it up a notch.” The Bayside Club is a luxury community set to exceed the boldest expectations, providing unparalleled hotel services, amenities, and offering resort-style activities. Calling The Bayside home, means living where most people would only ever dream to vacation.

Join the club.
