The Mark condominium and retail project to rise on that space
As part of a development agreement approved by the Sarasota Planning Board and the City Commission in 2006, State Street between Lemon Avenue and Pineapple Avenue will close permanently to vehicular traffic starting Saturday, Oct. 21, the city has announced.
“State Street will close early Saturday morning for the Downtown Farmers Market and will not reopen to vehicles,” a news release points out.
Originally approved as City Place at Pineapple Square, the development taking that space has been named The Mark, the release adds. The project includes the city’s transformation of State Street between Lemon Avenue and Pineapple Avenue into a pedestrian mall, the release adds.
The development plans include 157 condominiums and townhomes, 35,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, and 11,000 square feet of commercial office space, the release says.
The Mark is projected to be completed by the fall of 2019.
