Watercrest Senior Living Group and United Properties have topped out Watercrest Sarasota Senior Living Community, a 198-unit luxury development in Sarasota, Fla. The project broke ground in April and is slated for completion in the summer of 2020. 

Located at 4141 Desoto Road, Watercrest Sarasota encompasses 72 independent living, 96 assisted living and 30 memory care units. The amenities list includes a promenade, fireplace, water wall, pool, salon and spa. The senior community will also feature Market Street Plaza, the “outdoor” streetscape with LifeBUILT programs catering to the memory care patients.

The 11-acre property is 6 miles northeast of downtown Sarasota, less than 3 miles west of Interstate 75 and 4 miles east of Sarasota International Airport. The development is located between the Publix-anchored University Walk and the numerous shops and dining options at The Mall at University Town Center.

Walker and Co. is the contractor of the project designed by Designed by D2 Architecture. Watercrest and United Properties have recently completed a 128-unit senior living community in Naples, Fla., as their first senior living project.
