In Sarasota, Construction Manager Hired for First Phase of The Bay Project

Phase 1 includes the creation of walkways and paths and the spiral Sunset Boardwalk overlooking Sarasota Bay.

The Bay Park Conservancy, overseeing the Sarasota bayfront redevelopment project known as The Bay, has hired Jon F. Swift Construction as the construction manager for Phase 1 of the effort.

“Recognized as one of the region’s leading commercial contractors,” the conservancy noted in a news release, “the company will be overseeing the development of The Bay Park in its initial stages.”

Swift Construction has expertise in building parks, having worked on Bayfront Park on Longboat Key and the Siesta Beach Park improvements, the release stated. It also has been involved in the Lemon Avenue and First Avenue streetscapes in downtown Sarasota.

“The Bay team is excited to bring a skilled leader in the industry on board as we refine and bring the vision for Phase 1 to life,” said Bill Waddill, Chief Implementation Officer of The Bay Park Conservancy. “Jon F. Swift Construction has built a strong relationship with neighbors and the community, has worked closely with the city of Sarasota and earned its trust, and saw the importance of understanding the environment they’re working with to minimize disruption to daily lives. We’re excited to partner with this strong community player as we realize the possibilities of Phase 1.”

Phase 1 includes the creation of walkways and paths and the spiral Sunset Boardwalk overlooking Sarasota Bay.

“We are excited about the opportunity to build Phase 1 of The Bay Park for our community,” said Jason Swift, president of Jon F. Swift Construction and project manager for the Phase 1 work. “Our team is ready to get started to make the community’s vision a reality.”
