Sarasota’s Rosemary District Alive With Development

The Rosemary District is currently experiencing the development of more than 1,000 residential units either under way or recently completed, as well as new retail space. Many of the new residential units, such as The Courtyard at Citrus and Risdon on Fifth, are condos rather than apartments.

For its part, Elan Rosemary is the first Sarasota project for South Carolina-based Greystar, though the company has developed elsewhere in the Tampa Bay area and Florida. Greystar assembled the Elan Rosemary site from three previous owners, including paying $3 million for the former George’s Top & Body Shop.
