The Landings of Sarasota
The Landings gives residents immediate access to the internationally acclaimed cultural activities of Sarasota. They include the Ringling Art Museum, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, the Sarasota Film Festival, the Sarasota Orchestra, the Sarasota Opera, Mote Marine Aquarium and Mote Laboratory, numerous theaters, arts festivals, music venues and much more. Sarasota is also well known for its numerous excellent dining venues.
The exquisite downtown Bayfront, which is teeming with activities day and night, is only a quick, thirteen-minute ride away. It is easy to pick up guests at the Sarasota-Bradenton airport which is located just 25 minutes away. Stop by St. Armand’s Circle for shopping or dining on your way home.
If relaxing on the beach is more your style, Siesta Beach, selected as the Number One Beach in the U.S., is located only twelve minutes away from The Landings by car. This world-famous quartz sand beach is also home to an international sand sculpture contest and a number of national and regional volleyball tournaments.
Baseball is a Sarasota favorite and it is one of only fifteen Florida cities to be the spring home of a major league baseball team-the Baltimore Orioles. Nathan Benderson Park is home to the annual World Rowing Masters Regatta.
In terms of healthcare, knowing that you are only 6 minutes to Sarasota Memorial Hospital, one of the top-rated hospitals in the country, is comforting.
The district schools that serve The Landings offer the only International Baccalaureate (IB) programs for all three levels of education (Phillippi Shores Elementary, Brookside Middle and Riverview High Schools). Additionally, Sarasota County offers a wide variety of public and private school options for students with special interests; talents and/or special needs.
The Landings Shopping Center is adjacent to our property and offers many useful amenities such as banks, beauty shops, restaurants and a Publix Supermarket. The Wednesday outdoor Farmer’s Market is a short walk or bike ride away. Playgrounds, restaurants and an abundance of shopping venues are all close by.
Our neighborhood is a private sanctuary along Roberts Bay, Phillippi Creek and the Intracoastal Waterway. There is a dry dock marina adjacent to the property, plus a hiking and nature trail walk that leads to a gazebo on the Intracoastal Waterway with fishing and a place to launch Kayaks.
The choice is yours because The Landings has options for every lifestyle.

The Landings community is bordered by Roberts Bay and Phillippi Creek. So fishing, boating and kayaking are just moments away. It’s such a comfortable place for children to explore the world around them. The winding roads with large shade trees, neighborhood lakes, parks, nature trails, and access to Roberts Bay provide an idyllic setting for quiet observation, photography or reflecting on nature’s bounty.
Our natural neighbors include: red and grey foxes, bobcats, raccoons, possum, otters, great-horned and screech owls, Cooper's and red-shouldered hawks, eagles, osprey and even manatee in the creek or Bay. Occasionally one will see a friendly neighbor carrying a turtle from the street back to the lake where it belongs.
The Nature Trail is about a quarter mile walk to a gazebo, where you can sit in the shade and watch the boats go by on the Intercoastal waterway.
Meet The Residents
The Landings has the feel of a small town, where neighbors know each other and "look out for each other" in the very best of ways. It is such a pleasure to ride our bikes around the community under the beautiful canopy of trees, observing the natural environment that we are privileged to live in. As we ride around we frequently stop to greet friends, catch up with those we haven't seen in a while, and to meet new members of our community. As active members of the Landings and larger Sarasota community this location has been ideal for us. We are so committed to this area that we even purchased a condo for investment! Those are some of the reasons that we have lived here for 25 years.

One of the many things I love about my carriage house is not only the privacy, but also the close proximity to the shopping center. I just love walking to Publix to pick up a few things; walking to the restaurants for dinner; or just browsing, when time allows, at Joann Fabrics and other shops. While the Landings offers so many living options and recreational opportunities, the aspect that I find incredible and unique when compared to any other place, is the people. Landings folks are so diverse and friendly and we feel lucky to be a part of such a wonderful community.
