Last week I was invited to a luncheon to get an update on the amenities under construction for the Lakehouse Cove section of Waterside at Lakewood Ranch.
The boat house, which will house rental kayaks and paddleboards, is now complete. The main club house and pool are still under construction, as is the fitness center, but it's now easier to visualize how the waterfront will look.
Waterside Place, which will be the downtown center for Waterside, will have solar powered boats which will ferry residents from Lakehouse Cove. Waterside Place will have restaurants, shops, apartments, commercial office space, and a new facility for Sarasota's The Player's Theater. There will also be connecting bike/hiking trails from Lakehouse Cove to Waterside Place.
