Would be cool if there was a pedestrian bridge between the two towers, or some kind of arch over Central Avenue. These towers are like a gateway to DT from the west. Something going over Central would make it more dramatic.

DT St. Pete still has lots of room to grow. Was down there on Saturday. Didn't get to see it all, but I did see the lot for Ovation is completely cleared, leveled and ready for construction.

The sky bridge is a good idea.

Also, this being close to Tropicana, this might bring in a huger project. Like an 55 story Hotel/Residential with conference rooms and all that. Can't a boy just dream?

Is there other development occuring in the vicinity of The Arts ? If so, that would offset a little my dissappointment with its location.

That I know of, no. I think there is some developement near the lake that is suppose to happen, but that is townhomes. The closest major thing near it is Tropicana. But I suspect with the costruction of this, more projects will pop near it.

Nothing to be disappointed with. St. Petersburg is a well planned city which has plenty of room to fill out. In addition to the waterfront highrises, the Central Avenue Corridor will one day have a nice row of buildings. There are lots of proposals - we will see what gets built.

I only know of one project i that area of downtown. It's the Tamarind, a 17 story condo. If you look at the first Arts rendering I think it's going on the lot and field at the bottom left of the rendering. But you're right it is out of the way.

This is a thread about development people, not a chatroom. Let's avoid the kind of nonsense posted in the past couple of days.

thanks.

^ Residences at 601 Central Av (with 108 condos and retail at 15 stories and 220') is two blocks east and The Tamarind (with 300 condos at 27 stories and 300' according to the info I have seen) is one block west. Both seem to be fairly considerable and won't leave the Arts Center Village out there all alone. BTW, Casablanca Towers (40 condos at nine stories) is also three blocks south and I believe it is under construction.

Orion, across the street from Casablanca, is also under construction. However, I believe it's only about 6 or 7 stories tall.

One of my favorites as well. The reason I asked about it is that that though site clearance had begun, I thought I'd read somewhere that it had been delayed.

Also, I didn't realize that Ovation would be so prominant (right on the water) and so tall (358').

Finally, I wonder if the St. Pete Times map has a typo for The Arts. It has 35 stories and 310' I thought I'd read that they'd be 390'.

Very nice job! Ovation is stunning. And that's quite a website for The Edge.

Jason,

I fixed a bunch of broken image links, added a couple of projects and the url site for Ovation. Not sure if you want to make these chenges to the front page as well.

Thanks

Nice job MFI! BTW, I don't know if anyone else saw it, but I was watching public TV last week and saw a show about some artists blowing glass. They were in several foreign cities, one in Italy, and Monterrey, Mexico among others teaching local artists and they obviously were quite renowned. Their work was very impressive. Then I realized it was Chihuly, the artist to be featured in the Arts Center Plaza. He's bringing to St Pete some of his world renowned art and it will be something to see. St Pete and its visitors are in for quite a treat and it should really add to the culture in the area.

Windward is cancelled, I believe. That's a great rendering of Ovation. The Arts, Grand Bohemian and Edge will really add things to DT beyond more condos and retail.
