Palm Beach Style Meets Sarasota Charm

For Kolter Urban, working on both the east and west coasts of Florida comes naturally. The company, headquartered in West Palm Beach, is the developer of the Mark Sarasota located in the heart of Downtown. Design innovation and forward-thinking is at the heart of every new Kolter community. Their specialty is understanding the marketplace and delivering a lifestyle unique to each location.

For the Mark Sarasota – the walkable downtown lifestyle and charm of Sarasota was an instant draw for homebuyers seeking a fresh new lifestyle. The ability to park the car in a private garage and enjoy the luxury amenities of the building enables residents to experience the perks of living downtown, yet still maintain the privacy of a condominium residence.

BOB MARTIN - Palm Beach Style Meets Sarasota Charm

When it comes to designing the interior spaces of this one-of-a-kind building, Kolter tapped into the expertise of Bob Martin of The Decorators Unlimited in Palm Beach. Located on Florida's east coast, Martin's design portfolio includes award-winning interiors from around the globe. His unique ability to marry architectural design with a modern flair and innovative finishes is evident in the released renderings of the interior common areas planned for the Mark Sarasota.

“The design captures the spirit of being a little more carefree in how we live. Today's home buyer is very social. They spend more time with family and friends – dining, shopping and enjoying the area's cultural activities. When they come home, we wanted the Mark to reflect this free-spirited lifestyle,” adds Martin. “Kolter has provided ample room for entertaining in both the common area gathering spaces and their private residences.”

The bright colors of the interior lobby and resident's lounge reflect the vibrancy of the city. Sleek lines and geometric shapes are focal points throughout the building to create a fresh contemporary setting. The design motif continues into the private residences which feature luxe European style kitchens, large entertainment islands and floor-to-ceiling windows that frame city views. Martin, and his team from The Decorator's Unlimited, has melded many of today's hottest trends with the sophistication and charm of Sarasota to create a unique sense of style for the community.
