Matt Kihnke has experience building condominiums in Sarasota, but he thinks the site at 1335 Second St. presents a distinct challenge for a developer.
“I think that location necessitates, kind of, an epic building,” Kihnke said. “That’s really what we were looking for — a boutique, high-end product for downtown.”
Kihnke, president of MK Equity, plans to build a 10-story, 12-unit condo on the 0.24-acre downtown property. The developer, which also built the Sansara condo at 300 S. Pineapple Ave., filed preliminary documents with the city Jan. 31. Kihnke hopes to begin construction within six months.
