Living Seawall Installed in Sarasota! In the Summer of 2015 Sarasota Bay Watch kickstarted the Living Seawall Project, bringing together local experts to find a better shoreline alternative to traditional seawalls. Now after more than 3 years of planning, design, permitting and production, the City of Sarasota is installing Sarasota’s very first Living Seawall at O’Leary’s on Sarasota’s beautiful waterfront. The Living Seawall is an eco-friendly way to foster more marine life in the bay. Check it out! A Healthy Bay Is Everybody’s Business.
