The new buildings being built next to the tall mirrored building on the outskirts of downtown Sarasota is the Westin Hotel. This featured image shows the high rise that is being constructed reflected in the mirrors of the Sarasota One Tower.
The Westin Hotel will be eighteen stories high and have two hundred and fifty five rooms available. Construction of the hotel is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.
If you aren’t sure where this new high rise is located, here are some landmarks:
- Across from the Unconditional Surrender sculpture/statue (the guy kissing the girl) located on North 41
- On the north west corner of N. Tamiami Trail and Gulfstream Avenue.
- Just east of the Ritz Carlton Hotel
- Across from Marina Jack
I just found an article that Sarasota Herald Tribune published in 2014 that states that the high rise under construction on the corner of North Tamiami Trail and Gulfstream Avenue is “also” going to be the “Vue” condominiums. WOW! A website (click here) has listings for 3000 square foot units at the Vue for up to three million dollars.
Every now and then my photographers eye notices things that are reflecting. These reflections always make interesting photographs.
