After Arthur Vining Davis had retired from Alcoa in 1957, he turned his attention to Florida. By 1959, he purchased John Ringling’s fledgling developments on Sarasota’s barrier islands for $13.5 million. That would convert to more than $107 million today.
For his big cashiers check, Davis acquired 2,000 acres that included Bird, Otter and Coon keys, the southern half of Longboat Key, and most of Lido Key from the John Ringling estate. He also took the mantle from circus-magnate John Ringling as Sarasota’s visionary developer.
After Davis had died in 1962, his Arvida Corporation took the slow road to the development business on the southern end of Longboat Key focusing on condominiums. The roster includes Beachplace, Fairway Bay, Grand Bay, Inn on the Beach, Longboat Key Towers, Seaplace, Sunset Beach and more. In the early 1980s, the company developed the Avenue of Flowers shopping center.
I say that Arvida tiptoed on Longboat because the developer chose not to take the planned community approach that they did in South Florida. No schools and few hotels or commercial developments were included. Somehow the town demanded respect for what already existed on Longboat Key — quiet neighborhoods like Longbeach Village and Country Club Shores.
