SARASOTA, Fla. (Jan. 29, 2020) – 6051 Design Source, a high-end flooring design center, has leased an 8,000-square-foot industrial space at 6051 North Washington Boulevard in Sarasota to serve as a warehouse and retail showroom.
Nick DeVito II, SIOR, of Ian Black Real Estate represented both parties in the transaction. The landlord is Hansar Properties.
“The property has great visibility on U.S. 301 and is just one block away from University Parkway, which serves as the main route of transportation to Interstate 75,” said DeVito.
6051 Design Source is a new concept from partners Karl Reeves and Chris Dowling, who have a combined 55 years of experience in the tile business in Southwest Florida. The concept will offer flooring sales and installation services.
Currently, more than half of the space serves as a showroom, with the other half serving as warehouse space. The property also has an abundance of parking and room for outdoor storage. 6051 Design Source will complete minor renovations to the space as they create a showroom that meets customers’ needs.
“In the current market, there are not many properties that offer this kind of visibility, parking and outdoor storage,” said DeVito. “This space is a great fit 6051 Design Source and will allow them to get their name in front of the many cars traveling this road each day.”
The showroom is expected to open in February.
