Check their website and it has ton of new renderings and explain the project more in depth. With all that is going on now I have to say St. Pete basically runs the Bay Area. As mentioned by the mayor earlier this year there are some business announcement coming soon

^DT St Pete is really coming into its own as a place that people are aware of, and are interested in checking out, but let's not get carried away. To "run the bay area", it would need to add thousands of hotel rooms, tens of thousands of good paying office jobs, a couple million sqft of retail space, etc. DT Tampa or Westshore each out scale DT St Pete in various metrics several times over.


edit: What this project does help do is further establish DT St Pete as a desirable (yet incomplete) urban neighborhood. It's perhaps the most desirable in the region, and a top consideration in the state. But being attractive to urban residents is just one facet of becoming an urban economic powerhouse.

Have to agree with Jason. St. Pete will always be the "second city" of this region. But this is an exciting project that will fill a big hole. I like the nighttime street level rendering. If all four sides are activated at the street, it will be great.

A shame it's flanked by parking garages:

Reservations for One St. Petersburg, a 41-story condo tower planned for the city's thriving downtown, have "far surpassed expectations,'' the project's sales director said Wednesday.
Since marketing began a few months ago, 104 of the 253 luxury units have been reserved, representing total sales of $106-million, according to Dave Traynor of Smith & Associates.
...
Empty nesters and others already living in the bay area account for about two-thirds of the reservations, Traynor said. The rest have come primarily from people in the Northeast and Midwest.

Interest among foreigners is picking up, as shown by increased traffic to One St. Petersburg's website from other countries, but so far "there's no significant foreign impact,'' Traynor said.

If pre-sales continue strong, Kolter could start construction this year on the condo tower. Work on the smaller Hyatt would begin later but would be geared to finish at the same time as the tower, around the end of 2018.

This is great to see. Things are headed in the positive direction, with a desire to move forward on the recommended pier park, another publix planned further away from the water, and some companies moving headquarter operations to the urban core recently.

Is it just me, but for an "iconic" building, it is kind of boring looking. St. Pete is doing a way better job than Tampa getting great retail below these buildings as well. I think a tower like this could be good for the Trump Tower site in Tampa with the views there.

Yes that would look good at the TTT site. Same height or a little taller. I wish luxury condo developers would start looking around in Tampa again. But back to topic, congrats to St. Pete for this, Bliss and maybe more to come.

Yeah great for St. Petersburgh & a really nice building to add to the skyline. But St. Petersburgh definately does not run the Tampa Bay Area but would say its has a more vibrant downtown and better Condo towers than Tampa but really lacks commercial/Business feel that makes it feel like a complete City. It would takes decades of commercial growth to catch up to commercial presence of Downtown or Westshore. Of course Tampa would take several years of growth to Catch up to St. Petersburgh vibrant downtown but I think the 2 new apartment towers will help. I hope the condo market starts picking up on the Tampa Side of things as Tampa essentially only has 1 high rise Condo building which is skypoint.

I am not sure why they bothered to put a tiny little hotel on the back of the building with no views instead of just incorporating it into the tower iteself. I wouldn't pay money for a view of nothing even if its a nice buildng but at least it is in a good location

^The irony being that little hotel tower holds 40% of the project's total units. 173 hotel rooms to 253 condo units.


Doing it this way will be a bit cheaper, and let's them phase the project, or build it more quickly, depending on how they choose to do it.

They may have just put it in the tower but they couldn't build any taller.

In my experience, views from a hotel is like tits on a pig..anytime we have not sleeping is spent pounding the pavement, dining, entertainment. Even at places directly on the water, by the time we are in the room, your looking at a dark sky and zero waterview. In fact we have never been in the room before sunset.

Now, as a resident not on vacation, we would spend many nights eating at home and watching the views. I would think this is the same for most situations.

This hotel will be right in the center of downtown, it would be very cool views looking at the city late at night ( when people finally go up to their room ).

An update article came out today with new renders of the penthouse on St. Pete Rising today (I can't link it because I don't have 10 posts yet). I think the more exciting news here is that they've already sold 120 of the 253 units. Almost halfway sold out and it won't even break ground until 1Q 2016.

These renders definitely help sell more units. Be nice to see views from other units too.

Exclusive: 41-story condo tower, hotel in downtown St. Pete to break ground ahead of schedule

NOV 16, 2015 06:38 AM

When Kolter Group started planning One St. Petersburg, a 41-story condominium tower on Second Street North, its executives knew the deal could be pushing the limits of a market the size of St. Pete.

But pre-sales have surpassed Kolter's expectations, and the West Palm Beach-based developer will break ground on the 253-unit tower and adjacent 173-room hotel in the first quarter of 2016 — 90 to 120 days ahead of schedule, said Bob Vail, president of Kolter Urban.

"We had a lot of people say, 'Are you sure you want to do a building that big?'" Vail said. "We were cautious about it, and I think the initial results are that it’s going to be absorbed in a very reasonable amount of time."

Two more tidbits not found in the article. The vacant building on the site of ONE St Pete should be demolished in the next 10 days. And the brand of Hyatt has been decided, but not publicly announced yet. Look for a press release soonish.
