Second house razed for Tampa Bay Lightning & Channelside owner, Jeff Vinik’s new estate
by Harold Bubil , Herald-Tribune
Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik and his wife — fresh off a victory in acquiring the Channelside property in Tampa — have taken the first significant steps to develop a grand residence on St. Armands Key that could have dramatic views of downtown Sarasota.
To that end, demolition has begun on a 64-year-old house at 132 N. Washington Drive that the Viniks bought in May for $3.5 million.
That deal followed the 2013 acquisition by Vinik and his wife, Penny, of a 12-year-old house next door, at 112 N. Washington Drive. The couple paid $4.25 million for it before tearing it down.
Taken together, the two houses measured 9,200 square feet.
The Viniks plan to replace those residences with one that will cost $3.6 million to build, according to a City of Sarasota building permit.
