Sarasota Opera Unveils New Artist Housing
Sarasota Opera’s Maestro Victor DeRenzi and Richard Russell will dedicate the newly built Steinwachs Artist Residences Tuesday, March 21st with a ribbon cutting ceremony as well as a short performance by Sarasota Opera artists. After the official ground breaking on August 7, 2016, construction began on a new development designed to be a mixed-use complex at 1440 Boulevard of the Arts between Central and Lemon Avenues. Developed by Dr. Mark Kauffman and partners, Rosemary Square will include retail, office space, and condominium units. Sarasota Opera has purchased 30 units in the new development to house artists and members of the artistic staff during the company’s fall and winter seasons. This new building has allowed the company to increase its available housing from 43 to 70 company members.
