Residents may have noticed some differences in two iconic Sarasota buildings lately, both the Crescent Club on Siesta Key and the Ringling Shopping Center in downtown Sarasota are undergoing some changes in the New Year. 

Last month developers knocked down the old Ringling Shopping Center, which vacated a nearly 10 acre site close to downtown Sarasota for over 6 decades. In its place will go a 222 unit apartment complex, with mixed use commercial space. The new plans will rejuvenate a once run down part of downtown Sarasota and offer more living space to those wanting to be close to downtown.

Those who are familiar with Siesta Key, know the popular Crescent Club bar near the South Bridge. Like the Ringling Shopping Center, the bar has been operating for over six decades on the key. Gary Kompothecras, founder of 1-800 ASK GARY bought the bar and plans on preserving the iconic Siesta Key bar. Kompothecras also has plans to revitalize the area with a new hotel, bringing new life to the South Bridge area.
