Siesta Key Beach Park Improvement Project Sky Thacker
Client: Sarasota County
Jon F. Swift Construction was selected as Construction Manager for the $17.5 million 24-month renovation and improvement project for Sarasota’s crown jewel – Siesta Key Public Beach which was recognized as the #1 Beach in the Nation by Dr. Beach in 2011. The project includes upgrades to existing facilities, an increase in parking spaces and additional new public facilities. The design features a new, elevated East concession/restroom building that will allow visitors to enjoy sweeping views of the beach. New tennis courts, a new children’s playground and new picnic shelters are just some of the other new amenities. The site will include a new 15’ wide pedestrian esplanade and repairs to the existing historic shelter and courtyard will bring them back to their former glory.
