Hello Artists and Urban Living lovers...
We are considering developing another Art Community in Sarasota near 10th & Orange. We could build a live/work co-op living community where all the cars are parked outside creating a "Village" or we could have garages underneath each unit.
Personally I beleive most people would prefer to use their garage space as a studio but your thoughts are appreciated.
The catch is will it sell? What would be the appropriate cost for a new 2 story townhome with live/work studio.
The benefits to the area - walk to transit, walk to downtown, bay, Publix on 41, huge greenspace park at Gillespie. We have existing artists in the current warehouse space, some of which have apartments in them. Many of them are encouraging us to build a new "community" in Sarasota.
The key is will it be economically feasible? Only you can tell us that! We want to hear from you.
