Rosemary District Named in Top 10 Most Walkable Neighborhoods in Florida

Walkable Rosemary District

Last week, RedFin released a list of the Top 10 Most Walkable Neighborhoods in Florida and The Rosemary District came in at number 10 with a walk score of 86.9! TheSt. Petersburg RedFin Agent, Brian Walsh, spoke about the Walkable Rosemary District saying, “The Rosemary District is one of the oldest communities in Sarasota, and it’s seeing a great renewal with a lot of new construction and building activity taking place. It has a very city-like feel to it in a lot of ways, with huge waterfront towers always in view and a major shopping area just a few blocks away. The community is much more active than some of Sarasota’s more traditional bedroom neighborhoods.”

The walking score is determined by analyzing hundreds of walking routes to nearby amenities and assigning points which are awarded based on the distance to the amenities in a variety of categories. For example, a 5 minute distance or (.25 mile) is awarded the maximum number of points and no points are awarded after the 30-minute mark. It also takes into account pedestrian friendliness of the area by analyzing population density and road metrics such as block length and intersection density.  The Walkable Rosemary District features delicious restaurants like Pomona Bistro & Wine Bar and The Rosemary; close entertainment from The Van Wezel and The Players Theatre; as well as local business amenities like Ameriprise, Pilates Principles, DC Valet and Michael Urban Hair Studio.
