Development firm clears property for new home on GMD

Seaward Development has submitted plans for a building permit for the lot at 3515 Gulf of Mexico Drive.


Sarasota Custom Home Builder clears lot for new home.


Trees and land have been cleared at 3515 Gulf of Mexico Drive to make way for a new home on Longboat Key’s Gulf front.

The property is being developed by Seaward Development for David Hargreaves and his wife, Linda. It is situated just south of the town’s trailer park.

“The house will surely be one of the finest homes on the island,” Seaward Development CEO Patrick DiPinto wrote in an email.

The email was sent to Planning, Zoning and Building Director Allen Parsons and distributed to town commissioners.

Hargreaves has been a resident of Lido Shores for over 10 years and plans to be a full-time Longboat Key resident once his new home is finished, according to DiPinto.

The development group purchased the property on the barrier island in January 2022, and it was already zoned as R3, low-medium density, mixed residential district. The zoning makes building a home on the property allowable without the development needing to visit the town’s Planning and Zoning Board first as long as it meets town requirements.

A building permit was submitted to the Planning, Zoning and Building Department the week of March 13. It is still under review by the department.

The clearing of the property, including the tree removals, were allowed because of a separately, previously approved tree permit. The trees on the property were a mix of invasive species, so replacement will not be required.

Renderings were included with permit application information and are subject to change based on town required changes.

$11.15M condo sale sets sales record in Sarasota and Manatee

The Grand Penthouse at Seaward Development project Epoch has recently broke the sales record for a condominium in both Sarasota and Manatee Counties.  See the original email posted in the Business Observer below:

The Penthouse at Epoch has broken the Sarasota sales record.
The penthouse was originally listed for $16.35 million in June 2022

A new record for highest-priced condo sale has been set in Sarasota and Manatee counties, with an $11.15 million sale of a downtown Sarasota unit.

The condo, with the highest listing price in the two-county history, according to MLS data, is at 605 S. Gulfstream Ave. That’s in Epoch Sarasota, a bayfront building in Sarasota.

High as the price was, it was a 30% discount from the $16.35 million that the condo was listed for in June 2022. The condo was on and off the market since then, says Longboat Key Coldwell Banker Realty agent Kelly Baldwin, who represented the buyers. “They were pretty specific about what they wanted,” adds Baldwin.

Moriah Taliaferro, a Realtor at Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s downtown Sarasota office, represented the seller.

“This record-breaking home sale in downtown Sarasota exemplifies the prestige and desirability of the luxury real estate market in the area,” Taliaferro says in a press release from Premier Sotheby’s. “The exceptional penthouse takes full advantage of enhanced grandeur, located in one of Florida’s premier sun-soaked destinations.”

The penthouse condo takes up the top two levels of the building with over 6,000 square feet of interior living space. The space features high ceilings, an open layout, a private elevator foyer, recessed lighting and private terraces.

Additionally, on the rooftop is a 1,700-square-foot private sky lounge complete with a jacuzzi, putting green and seating area.
