Tim Seibert, Sarasota Herald-Tribune, November 4, 2007: “I designed Bay Plaza (1982) in the tradition of the Sarasota school. It is one apartment thick, and the building curves around the site’s perimeter, making the structure functional, but with sculptural qualities. There’s no artificial decoration; it’s a modernist building. A great building requires three principals. You need an understanding client who believes architecture is important, an architect dedicated to the work, and an excellent builder. We had all three in Bay Plaza. It’s stood the test of time, and … I think it’s the best looking high-rise building in Sarasota.”
