Aria Condos for Sale – Longboat Key, Florida 34228


A new architectural jewel has been added to Longboat Key with the 2016 completion of the Aria, the newest eye candy amongst the condominiums in the southern side of the island. This property development, located at 2251 Gulf of Mexico Drive, is architecturally significant, no doubt about it. It has restored and preserved at this site its original Villa am Meer estate home circa 1935 which certainly predates all of the condos for sale in Longboat Key.

Designed by John H. Phillips, the same architect who rendered the John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art, this vintage home was converted into a Residents Club to house many of the Aria complex amenities. Also meticulously restored was the historic estate’s original stone entry gate which has remained standing as one of the iconic landmarks in the key.

Coastal Luxury Living


There is much to be excited about too on the new architecture of the Aria condominium building which is similarly a shoo-in to achieve landmark status amongst Longboat Key condos for sale. Flaunting a coastal contemporary style, it was designed by Tampa-based Santiesteban & Associates, a leader in luxury high-rise condo architecture in Florida.

Aria vividly illustrates that coastal living can be totally chic and modern, with the newest in technology employed in its design and construction. One of the condominium’s most striking features is a custom and glass railing system that maximizes the waterfront views of the property. Additionally, customization of individual units was likewise offered to prospective buyers of Aria condos for sale.

Definitions of Opulence


Developed as a four-story condominium, Aria houses just 16 residential units with their floor areas flowing from the front and back of the building. The condos’ floor plans range from 3,804 to 3,940 square feet that spill out to spacious terraces setting a template for a luxurious island home living.

Other condo features as opulent include 10-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glass walls, oversized private garages, and private elevators for the upper floor units. The Aria condos for sale are so winsome that at price quotes of between $3 million and $4 million, all of the units were sold even before the condominium was completed in 2016.

Besides the superior builds of the residential units, the superb amenities of Aria condos for sale spurred their early sellout. Firstly, the gated condominium perimeter is secured by a high-tech access and monitoring system.

Hubs of Fine Living

Developed with a park-like landscaping, this property flaunts a 300-foot beachfront which is complemented by a nearby swimming pool and spa. Aria’s charming Residents Club too serves as a beachfront hub for many upscale amenities including a wine cellar, catering kitchen and covered terrace with fire pit.

The condominium also has a fully equipped Wellness Center near a serene lagoon that adds to the quiet ambiance within the complex. In addition, the complex features a half-mile pathway meandering between lush trees and gardens.

More recreational facilities as well as life and leisure centers are easily accessible outside of the Aria complex. One is just across the street—the 410-acre Resort at Longboat Key Club offering memberships for golf and tennis. Likewise convenient to condo residents are the shopping and dining venues of St. Armands and downtown Sarasota which are only a short distance south of Longboat Key.
