Redevelopment at Sarasota Housing Authority

Through public/private partnerships and generous investment by the City of Sarasota and Sarasota County, SHA has completed a three-phase redevelopment of our former Janie Poe public housing community into what is now Janie’s Garden. Michael's Development Company was our co-developer on these three developments totaling over $40 million.

Janie's Garden Phase (pictured) is now completed and fully occupied, providing 225 beautiful, new, modern, energy-efficient apartments as well as 10,500 sq. feet of retail at the Marketplace at Janie's Garden.

SHA has now partnered with Gardner Capital and Duvernay + Brooks to redevelop two more SHA properties, Orange Ave and Cohen Way, both of which will be redeveloped with 9% Low Income Housing Tax Credit equity.
