Construction to begin for Vanguard Lofts development
Groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 19
Designed by architectural firm Halflants + Pichette, the proposed Vanguard Lofts will be Sarasota’s first development designed to encompass the urban infill philosophy of walkable city environments with ample live/work areas within walking distance of shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities. Crowley Services, Inc. is the general contractor for the project. Four of the project’s six residences, marketed by Premier Sotheby’s International Realty associate Frank Lambert, are under contract.
"Vanguard Lofts will lead the way for a huge successful transformation of the Rosemary District, while setting the standard for architectural excellence for years to come,” Lambert said. “Kevin Bryon, the developer of Vanguard Lofts and Michael Halflants, the project’s architect, are redefining what it means to live and work downtown.”
At completion, Vanguard Lofts will consist of three loft residences and three garden residences.

Planned amenities include a ground floor, elevator-serviced public lobby, second-floor conference/media room, third-floor fitness room and fourth floor private roof top terrace for the exclusive use of the garden residences.
