Seaward Development says its planned 23-unit Epoch luxury condo tower in downtown Sarasota will embody all of the attitudes toward quality the company has been focused on.

So I keep that in the forefront of my mind. We want our customers to have a great experience with us.”
The fear also challenges him to develop what he believes will be “the finest quality residential product that Sarasota has ever seen.”
“This is going to be a legacy project for our company,” DiPinto, a former New England custom home builder, says of the 18-story tower. “It’s going to be both contemporary and timeless at the same time.”
Epoch units are being priced from $3.3 million to more than $6.5 million — among the most expensive new condo units on the market at present in Sarasota.
