McKay Bay

has anyone heard any major news regarding property on Causeway Blvd on McKay Bay? I heard something but don't want to spread any rumors in case it turns out to be false or not go through. Was told it's not public info at this time.

I also updated the Pinellas list to the best of my knowledge, which isn't much.

Updated both lists

I took off Altis Grand Central and Kress because they've been dead long enough and there's no point in having dead stuff on the list. I did (maybe ironically to some of you all) add back Del Villar. If they plan to start sales in Q3, it's active again for our purposes no matter how well those sales actually go or if it gets out of the ground.

Hi..
Haven't read all the posts yet. Has anyone mentioned that the 36 story AER Tower is the same project as the "Straz Tower," or Residences at Riverwalk Tower? It be. Also, I've been wondering what constitutes a tower. Isn't a tower taller than it is wide? I've seen a couple of sq block sized 5 story projects called towers and wondered if they ought not be called towerettes, or (I like this one) "Squats," or maybe..."buildings." �� Love this site.

AER Tampa I believe has been sold to another developer as it has been removed from ALV website.

A 'tower' is supposed to be a building notably taller than it is wide, which stands above or apart from the rest of a structure or surrounding structures.

Nobody here will use the word tower for a squatty slab of a building, but the media often will. I've seen them refer to a 4 story apartment slab as a 'tower', basically ignoring the word's meaning.

Tower implies tall, like a high rise, which, based on this definition, is taller than 10 stories.


Quote:
mid-rise
[mid-rahyz]

Word Origin

adjective
1.
(of a building) having a moderately large number of stories, usually five to ten, and equipped with elevators.
noun
2.
a mid-rise apartment or office building.
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/mid-rise
It is definitely something taller than wide, so even an 11 story building may not be a tower. On the other hand, if you start getting quite tall and are still wide, it might be a tower.

In my mind, anything under 10 stories for a building is not a "tower." but keep in mind that the media 1) often gets its information from a developer or their agents who are trying to sell something and 2) is often trying to generate excitement. Saying a 4 story building is being built will not gerenate readers like saying a "tower" is being built.

High-rise in fire codes are based on 7 stories.

"Fire Analysis & Research Division, [email protected].
1 “High rise” is defined here as 7 stories above grade. This is roughly consistent with the Life Safety Code definition of high rise as 75 feet (23 meters) in height, measured from the 2 Construction type of building involved in fire is not reported after 1998."

The term tower is subjective and the only real definition suggests that it is narrow. Height is not as relevant to the term. Neither high rise or tower specify any real specific height by definition. OF course here you will get an argument but for the general public, anything narrow having multiple floors could be considered a tower and high rise, by nature of the name itself lends to be taller and since the codes suggest that high-rise is 7 stories or 23 meters, I will lean on that.

I believe there are (were) two projects called AER in the T-Bay area.

I am still confused by the AER / Residences at Riverwalk.

So who is the current developer and do they now have this shown on their site?

I still see old data posted on the previous sites unless they just haven't bothered to update their info.

AER was the name original name for the Tampa site. It then came later for the St. Pete building for whatever reason. Currently on the ALV web Tampa is completely off but it has the inaccurate render between both cities. Hopefully the new developer for the Tampa site comes with a better project. I am not impressed with ALV projects & I don't think the Tampa one would've been what we thought it would be. ALV is getting ready to build another tower DT st.pete taller and skinnier and I could only imagine of what it would look like.
