SARASOTA, Fla. (Oct. 3, 2016) – The CAST Building, an iconic Class A office building in Sarasota known for its striking modern design, has listed for $5.9 million. Located at 4440 Fruitville Road, the two-story property is 24,000+/- square feet and 100% occupied by CAST.
Orr Enterprises of SRQ LLC retained Sarasota-based Ian Black Real Estate as the exclusive listing agent for the property. Partners Ian Black and Steve Horn will represent the seller.
Tampa-based Alfonso Architects built the energy-efficient property in 2003. It has won numerous architectural awards, including the American Institute of Architects’ State of Florida Design Award of Excellence, and the American Institute of Architects’ Tampa Bay Chapter Design Merit Award “Best Modern Building in Florida.”
“This is one of Sarasota’s signature office buildings,” said Black. “Between the beautiful design, flexibility of the space, and proximity to the interstate and affordable housing, this property would make an excellent location for a corporate headquarters.”
CAST, which currently occupies the building, provides world-class execution, scalable expertise and technical services to retailers nationwide. The company is based in Sarasota and has additional offices throughout the U.S.
“We’re freeing up the property as a fixed asset now because it suits our growing business needs,” said JP Orr, Principle of Orr Enterprises of SRQ LLC and CEO of CAST. “As technology continues to change how our teams interact and we increase our presence across the U.S., we are positioning the organization to flex as necessary to take advantage of a fast-paced marketplace. ”
Built primarily from concrete, raw steel and high-impact-resistant glass, the north-to-south facing property features an open-air office environment designed to capture natural light throughout the building while keeping temperatures cool. Two large suites include ample, flexible office and meeting space.
“Two stories of glass walls, and the stately grand oak in front surrounded by lush, manicured landscaping, give the experience of the outside coming in,” said Kelly Orr, Principle of Orr Enterprises of SRQ LLC. “It creates a serene space for employees and visitors, and the perfect setting for hosting outdoor events.”
