Golden Gate Point Ventures, LLC
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Golden Gate Point Ventures, LLC was formed by David Gruber to bring his vision of a distinct, curvilinear style of architecture to Golden Gate Point. Golden Gate Point Ventures has once again partnered with Robert Martin of Divisions Unlimited to build The Pearl project. Often a rarity in new developments, Gruber and Martin serve as both project developer and builder. This unique combination allows the team to have more control over the daily aspects of the project and extra attention to detail, as they are on site every day. In addition, as local developers they have strong working relationships with area partners and know and understand the Sarasota real estate market.
With over 20 years of residential and commercial development and construction experience, the Golden Gate Point Ventures team has successfully spearheaded a variety of multi-million dollar residential initiatives including the recently completed Island Court Venice, Island Court Longboat Key, and luxury townhomes steps from the Gulf of Mexico. Commercial developments include the Raymond James Stadium VIP Box Suites, along with various medical and professional office buildings.
A seasoned general contractor, Robert Martin’s construction company, Divisions Unlimited, has participated in a variety of commercial projects, including hospitals, multi-family housing and sports venues. Projects include Lake View Club Apartments with 224 units, club house and pool in Orlando; University of South Florida’s Teachers Center in St. Petersburg; and University of Central Florida Baseball Stadium.
Gruber founded Floors by Design, one of the region’s most successful specialty flooring companies. There he focuses on large commercial installations as well as the needs of builders, developers, designers and the most discerning homeowners on Florida’s gulf coast. Gruber’s flooring resume includes projects such as all Grand Bay condominium buildings and The Water Club on Longboat Key, as well as The Signature Place luxury condominiums in St. Petersburg, the new Aqualea Hyatt on Clearwater Beach, and most recently Sarasota Memorial Hospital Bed-tower.
