SOTA Residences & Hotel on Sarasota’s Main Street Announced Demolition Dates & Updates

Trepp Developments President Rodrigo Trepp offered updates on his new Sarasota project: SOTA Residences & Hotel to realtors who gathered in their Sales Gallery at 1734 Main Street.  The sophisticated mixed-use project will change the face of Main Street with a boutique hotel and luxury residences located in the heart of downtown. Each month, progress is taking place. They are now accepting contracts, and Friday they showcased their new SOTA architectural scale model.

“We are proud to announce we are making progress on what will soon become a landmark on Main Street. The demolition has begun starting with the two buildings at the rear of the site along Goodrich.”

Located at 1703 Main Street, SOTA will include a 16-story tower with Hoyt Architects named as the building designer and Architect of Record. The interiors are designed by New York City-based and award-winning Andre Kikoski Architect. 

Due to its height and distinct design, SOTA will be a standout piece of urban architecture in the center of Main Street. The hotel reception area, located on the 5th floor, offers breathtaking views of the pool deck and restaurant. Surrounding a custom-made reception desk, light wood panels and backlit quartz pull guests into the space.

The 5th floor flows from the lobby to the restaurant and bar, eventually spilling seamlessly onto a lushly landscaped pool deck with lounge seating and dining options.

With a neutral palette and warm wood accents, Kikoski designed the restaurant, bar and surrounding lounge to be a place to gather with friends and family for curated cocktails and a distinct menu with views of Main Street.  The square bar will be the center piece featuring a custom light fixture inspired by palm fronds with over 350 individual pieces of glass and wood suspended from the ceiling above.

A fitness center with private massage room for residents adds to the possibilities for leisure and entertainment. Meeting and function rooms allow for memorable gatherings. SOTA Hotel rooms and suites cocoon guests with the same blend of thoughtful materials and the finest European furniture, craftsmanship and design.

SOTA includes 35 spacious residences and 120 hotel rooms as a Tapestry Collection by Hilton and managed by Commonwealth Hotels.  Residents will enjoy cutting-edge design with the convenience of hotel services at their doorstep.

Michael Saunders & Company, known as the premiere luxury real estate firm on Florida’s West Coast, is selling two-and-three-bedroom residential condominiums starting at approximately $1.8 million.


As the developer, Rodrigo Trepp is excited that SOTA will offer residents easy access to the cultural and culinary joys of Sarasota in this oh-so-walkable neighborhood. The Main Street location offers a way to explore downtown from the waterfront and arts and cultural offerings to a variety of sophisticated and casual restaurants nearby.

SOTA will sit at the corner of Goodrich and Main Street at the eastern gateway to downtown Sarasota. The building will have four stories of parking and offer valet parking for hotel guests and dedicated parking spaces for the residential units.

Separate hotel and residential lobbies will be located on the ground level with hotel and reception amenities on the fifth level floor. There will be six floors of condominium residences starting on the eleventh floor.
