We began as luxury home builders and we still approach every detail and material with a single question: how do we make it better? Many of the details at EPOCH you will not see but will appreciate every day — the clearest most efficient glass on earth, thicker concrete and insulation — EPOCH will be quiet. Our finishes are uncompromising and feature appointments like Dornbracht and Gaggenau. EPOCH will be without compromise, which is just how we believe our 23 owners will want to live.

Architecture is about experiences, and you’re going to feel something special here. Each space and residence is unique, where the theater is the view, the light and the breeze. It is about honesty, purity of form, spatial relationships — where every moment is a reward. This was the genius of the iconic Sarasota architects and our aspiration for EPOCH.

When most people think of interior design they think decoration. We think about architecture, how spaces invite and engage the senses. So we start with how they live, practically, and then add the beauty. EPOCH is that most rare opportunity where exteriors and interiors are original, symbiotic, harmonious, and above all joyful. Isn’t this how we all want to live?

It’s only natural when the architecture is so alive that the landscapes respond to this energy. Our program for EPOCH is dynamic — unfolding gradually with surprising layers of color, texture and material. Exciting moments are contrasted with spaces for quiet, reflective escapes. From the entry drive to the pool pavilions, to sunset terraces which are the highest on the Sarasota skyline — the pace and vocabulary of EPOCH are thrilling.
When we introduced Epoch the market instantly recognized this was something original and intimate — just 23 half- or full-floor residences. There's not another offering like this in Sarasota. When you add a waterfront setting in a beautiful, wonderfully walkable location, savvy buyers said: ‘I'm not going to wait because this is a once and forever opportunity.’ Epoch is surely that and more.

“It is not only the beautiful design of EPOCH that makes it special. Our team is hands-on, local and dedicated to providing personal service to each one of the 23 owners throughout the building process. Those that know the building process understand the wisdom in Mies van der Rohe’s observation: God is in the details. There are indeed countless details not only in specifications, but in making certain that everything arrives and installs beautifully. It’s that art that we enjoy.”
