Sarasota’s Coolest Condo Buildings with a Mid-Century Vibe

Are you looking for a classically cool Mid-Century Modern condo in Sarasota? Here are 3 buildings buyers should definitely consider during their search…


Kingston Arms was developed in 1963 and has only 49 condo units. This property, with its cool 60’s style is the only condominium development within St. Armand’s which is mostly made up of luxury single family homes. The property has units ranging from 1-3 bedrooms and have floor areas ranging from 770 square feet to slightly over 2,000 square feet. These residences are contained in a low-rise structure built along-side a spacious courtyard, swimming pool, and lush tropical landscaping. This property is busting with Mid-Century style!


A second stylish Mid-Century property is The Dorset on Lido Key. This property has a mixture of studio, 1- and 2-bedroom units and has taken efforts to maintain the original 50’s beach aesthetic. It’s directly across from the public beach access and snack bar on beautiful Lido Beach. Amenities include a refreshing pool and recreation area, private parking, and onsite management. The Dorset is a great investment opportunity with its high vacation rental demand. It’s a must see for anyone looking for beach access property with a hip vintage vibe. 


The Sarasota Harbour West community is a property development designed for age 55-plus residents consisting of 90 units. The success of this 1963 development sparked a sister community, Sarasota Harbour East, to be built 3 years later. Today, both sections remain an attractive location for people interested in owning a piece of old Sarasota charm. Just a short walk to the west is the St. Armand’s Circle, a network of shopping, art, and restaurants. Sarasota Harbour West has condo units that overlook Sarasota Bay providing their residents breathtaking sunset views. A unique feature of the complex is the nearly 2,000-foot-long sidewalk path which is perfect evening walking and morning jogging. Additionally, the community has storage for kayaks, a newly renovated swimming pool, and colorful landscaping to contrast against the clean Mid-Century design.
