The Downtown Sarasota Condominium Association (DSCA) is a non-profit membership organization made up of condominium associations in greater downtown Sarasota. The DSCA is member-funded, operating under U.S. IRS classification as a 501(c)(4) – social welfare organization. The primary membership of DSCA are the condominium associations which subscribe to the purposes of DSCA. The DSCA also allows for non-voting associate memberships for any institution, association, business or individual who subscribes to the purposes of DSCA. All membership applications are submitted for approval by the DSCA Board of Directors.
In 2005, the Bayfront Condominium Association Inc., which was incorporated in the State of Florida in 1998, adopted Articles of Incorporation to establish the name of Downtown Sarasota Condominium Association under which to conduct the Association’s business. The name change more accurately reflects its membership and the wider geographic area that comprises the interests of residents for a vibrant and safe downtown.
DSCA’s 29 member condos account for over 70% (2,257) of total condo units (3,217) in downtown Sarasota, and over 75% ($1.04B) of total taxable property value ($1.38B) of all downtown condos (based on 2014 tax appraisals).
