Townhouse project will be called "Q"


SARASOTA -- During the boom, it was supposed to be the site of a luxury high-rise in the Mediterranean Revival style.

That was then. Sensing that the time is right for townhouses, and not a high-rise condo, the development company Jebco Ventures has announced its plans for Q, a residential project at 1750 Ringling Blvd. that will be priced from the high $300,000s.

Q will offer 39 residences with tankless gas water heaters, 8-foot solid-core doors, 10-foot front doors with all windows and doors rated up to 200 MPH, and LED lighting. Interior decor will include LUBÉ Italian Cabinetry, Duravit Vitreous China sinks, Bosch appliances and Hansgrohe plumbing fixtures.

The architecture will be contemporary.

Most of the units will have 360-degree spiral staircases with an optional glass elevators, as well as ample storage and private parking, with either a one-, two- or three-car garage. Glass-walled terraces will provide views of the city.

The first residences will be ready for occupancy in December 2013, and the project is scheduled to be fully completed in 2014.

"After over 40 years of conceiving and developing an assortment of significant projects, Q has become our most extraordinary opportunity for purchasers seeking quality and value,” said Jim Bridges, CEO of Jebco Ventures, Inc. “We are using superior materials and appointments throughout every space of this community, all of which are offered as standard furnishings, not upgrades or more expensive options.”

Design assistance was provided by Kurt Lucas and Boyan Guran of JKL Design Group.
