Longboat Harbour Towers Condos for Sale – Longboat Key, Florida 34228

Longboat Harbour Towers

Dig deep with a veteran local realtor on the history of the development of condo properties in Sarasota, and it would be a cinch that Longboat Harbour Towers at 4401 Gulf of Mexico Drive will be amongst the properties that will eventually crop up in the conversation.

The historical affinity of this condominium, which was built in 1972, is very well-founded. It was, after all, a brainchild of the late Irving Z. Mann, widely recognized as the father of condominiums in Sarasota. Mann, also known for his innovation as a developer, built one of the first Sarasota condos—Sarasota Harbour West—in 1963.

Building on four “Harbours”

Longboat Harbour Towers

Amongst Mann’s pioneering efforts in Longboat Key condos for sale was the Longboat Harbour Condominium which he developed in 1969 at a sprawling bayfront site across northeast of the gulf-front Longboat Harbor Towers. After Mann’s initial development in the island was sold out, he next built in 1970 Longboat Harbour South and Longboat Harbour North, but both satellite developments later changed identities to Sutton Place and Windward Bay, respectively.

After developing 26 condominiums not only in Sarasota but also in Fort Myers, Winter Haven, Lakeland, Daytona Beach and Boca Raton, Mann was named Florida’s 1974 Builder of the Year. Another accolade that Mann received was from the trade publication Professional Builder Magazine which named him as one of “Tomorrow’s Giants” in the construction industry. During the second annual Builder-Developer Conference and Exposition held in Miami Beach in 1970, his Longboat Harbour Condominium was voted as one of the four outstanding condo developments in the U.S. and Canada.

Art deco high-rise

Longboat Harbour Towers

A chic complex within a quiet 5.5-acre site, Longboat Harbour Towers bears the unmistakable imprint of a superb Mann development. The property was developed with its residential building in art deco style laid out parallel to the pristine gulf shore of Longboat Key.

The condominium was built as an 11-story edifice housing a total of 73 units and nestling amid a lush tropical landscaping. Longboat Harbour Towers condos for sale offer a tranquil setting complemented by panoramic vistas of the gulf and a white-sand beach to the west. The sweeping views of Sarasota Bay and the city skyline towards east from within these condos are as compelling.

Sizzling condo options

Choices on condos for sale in Longboat Harbour Towers can start on one-bedroom units with floor plans of 725 square feet and asking prices at around the $300s. The mid-sized two-bedroom condos here with floor areas of about 1,500 square feet are typically sales-listed in the $600s.

It always comes as a thrill for realtors to show the condominium’s amenities which include a redesigned lobby and newly refurbished resort-style pool and barbecue area. Other condo facilities are as fetching, such the Longboat Harbour Towers’ fitness center, sauna, onsite management office, and covered parking.

Moreover, access to local life and leisure centers is convenient from Longboat Harbour Towers which is located mid-key. A short distance north of the condominium is the island’s Centre Shops while towards south is the Bayfront Park Recreation Center and the Shoppes of Bay Isles. A short trip across the bridge at the southern end of Longboat Key adds more lifestyle delights in St. Armands Circle and downtown Sarasota, nearby destinations that realtors also don’t fail to rave about.
