Payne Park Housing


Payne Park Housing

The aim was to create a housing community that offered entertainment as well as a variety of housing units to the residents of Sarasota. The site is within walking distance of a variety of recreation amenities such as a movie theatre, courthouse, tennis courts, skatepark, police department, and a few restaurants. Creating a pedestrian retail promenade along S. Washington Blvd promotes a healthier lifestyle for those within the community and makes the city of Sarasota a more walkable area. The introduction of retail and commercial spaces creates job opportunities and adds economic value to the area which is otherwise under utilized. Square footage of the housing units vary catering to single individuals, young professional couples, small families, and the like creating a diversity in the community population.

The units are all bound by single loaded corridors to promote natural light qualities throughout the entire unit as well as to encourage the use of natural ventilation. All units are raised above the ground, providing each unit with its own residential parking spot directly below. This also provides an added sense of security.
