The magnate John Ringling has a fondness for Sarasota and had the foresight to have Lido Shores homes for sale zoned for single family residences. This was prior to condominium developments.

The homes incorporated cypress wood walls, roof overhangs, vaulted ceilings, oversized windows and sliding glass doors, and other climate-sensitive homes.
