New south-end condos called TEN35 Seaside pack a punch, and a price tag
By Jane Bartnett
TEN35 Seaside, Siesta Key’s new luxury gulf-front condominium complex, will be one of the newest additions to Siesta Key’s southern beach.
Located at 1035 Seaside Drive, just off Midnight Pass Road and currently under construction but nearing completion, the structure will be the home of 32 new condominium units rising on the land occupied by the former 32-unit Crescent Towers cooperative.
When Crescent Towers opened its doors in 1960, the building was heralded as “beach living at its spacious best,” by The Sarasota News. The newspaper wrote that “the last gulf-front lot on Crescent Beach at Siesta Key has been utilized by the construction of the Crescent Towers Cooperative apartments.”
Prices began at $12,500.
As the new TEN35 Seaside condominium residence rises 62 years later, it promises to be “an artfully designed modern structure.” Sarasota architect Brent Parker of the Parker Walter Group designed the residence in a contemporary coastal design. The Krauss family are the property’s developers and Sarasota designer Lori Fountain is the condominium’s interior designer.
“There have only been a handful of new developments on the beach in the past 20 years,” noted David Lehrman of The Sarasota Real Estate Company, who is Seaside’s co-developer and also in charge of marketing and sales. “The new building did not increase density and the coastal design will emphasize outdoor living. I believe that Seaside will have a positive impact on the Key.”
Lehrman reported that when the TEN35 Seaside residences went on sale in 2021, all 32 sold out by March of that year. There are two-, three- and four- bedroom residences. The largest is 2,500 square feet. Prices at the time of sale one year ago ranged from $1.5 million to $4.5 million — the latter for direct gulf-front units.
The first two levels of the six-story building will hold parking with four residence floors above. Amenities will include a beachfront swimming pool, fitness center, and access to 200 feet of beach space, as well as a second-floor terrace facing the Gulf that will overlook the pool area.

Lehrman anticipates full occupancy by mid-October.
