Mullet’s Aluminum Awarded Contract for Citrus Square
Downtown Sarasota will soon have it’s first authentically designed realization of the city’s new pedestrian friendly master plan thanks to the seasoned team of Building Contractor, Pierce Contracting and Architectural Firm, JONATHAN PARKS ARCHITECT.
Complimenting this highly successful team will be Mullet’s Aluminum Products, Inc. with a fully welded aluminum railing, fencing and gate system. “There is extraordinary detail in every aspect of Citrus Square and our craftsmen are thrilled at having the opportunity to contribute to this amazing property.” says, Jay Coblentz, Director of Sales for Mullet’s Aluminum. “There has been no detail overlooked – and for the few residences who will be fortunate enough to call Citrus Square home – satisfaction in knowing that only the finest quality went into constructing their new home. We are very honored to have been selected.”
Citrus Square is a mixed-use community that represents the first significant effort to realize the new Downtown Sarasota Master Plan by Andres Duany, showcasing a vibrant walkable community. Subsequent phases will stretch three city blocks transforming North Orange Avenue into a pedestrian-friendly enclave with abundant onstreet parking. These three-story, authentically-detailed buildings will house boutiques, restaurants and residences. The street facades are enlivened through the use of large windows, French doors with balconies, and stone mouldings. Retail spaces with wooden storefronts under multicolored canvas awnings compliment the sidewalk experience. High ceilings are reminiscent of classic early 20th century luxury apartments.
