SARASOTA, Fla. – Halfacre Construction Company, a Lakewood Ranch-based commercial construction company, was selected to build the newest location for the REALTOR® Association of Sarasota and Manatee.
Halfacre Construction Company is currently working with the REALTOR Association of Sarasota and Manatee (RASM) and the design team to finalize design and construction options for the $2.6 million project.
The new 7,400-square-foot structure will house offices, meeting rooms and conference rooms. The building will also feature an outdoor meeting area – complete with brick pavers, large aluminum storefront windows and aluminum canopy wraps for protected walkways.
“We are proud to be part of a growing business community in downtown Bradenton,” said Amy Worth, 2019 president of the REALTOR Association of Sarasota and Manatee. “This location strengthens our presence in Manatee County as we continue to fight for private property rights and the dream of home ownership.”
Located at 302 Eighth St. W. in Bradenton, Halfacre Construction Company will also supervise the site work and install the landscaping and hardscaping once construction commences in April 2019. The project architect is Fawley Bryant Architecture.
“We are very excited about the new state-of-the-art building,” said Roger Piro, chair of the RASM Facilities Task Force. “The Riverwalk location will be very convenient for our membership. This has been a long time coming for our Anna Maria, Palmetto, Parrish and Bradenton members, and we look forward to future community events and educational opportunities that we will be able to offer.”
The new site will become the second RASM member facility, serving REALTOR members and the business community in Manatee County. In 2015, Halfacre Construction Company built the Sarasota site at 2320 Cattlemen Road.
