SARASOTA (SNN TV) Nov. 18, 2022 - The most recent "new owner" of Bath and Racquet has, at long last, gotten the green light to redevelop the club synonymous with Sarasota tennis.

According to "The Observer," the redevelopment includes 256 condominiums and 65,000 square feet of office and retail space. The private racquet club includes 17 tennis courts, a pool and 12 indoor pickleball courts. Also, there is a dog park, a one-acre park, and an exercise, all available to the public.15% of the 84 one-bedroom units will be offered as attainable housing. 

Construction may begin in as soon as a few weeks. The Racquet club had been closed since the pandemic. Sarasota Springs bought the property in January for $15.35 million
