New Sarasota Performance Hall calls for stilts with parking underneath

Conceptual designs for the new Sarasota Performing Arts Center call for a three-story single structure on stilts that can accommodate approximately 200 parking spaces underneath and could help to protect the proposed 145,000-square foot bayfront facility from rising sea levels.

Meanwhile on Monday, after nearly a year of back-and-forth with Sarasota County, city officials think they finally have the right formula to help finance the $300 million redevelopment of the bayfront project, known as The Bay, where the proposed performing arts hall will be located.
