Still think Gateway should be part of St Pete, it is actually in the city of St Pete as well.

Just my half cent..

I'd rather let those areas have more space in this thread. The city boundaries are relatively arbitrary in regards to development patterns for those areas.

I'm going to re name the St. Pete thread for just Downtown and this one for urban areas not towns.

Maybe, but unless that's an old rendering, this building has a section going at an angle.

This is in the Tyrone area of St. Pete. I think it is exciting news for that part of town.

The Raytheon site has a buyer:

St. Louis developers buying Raytheon site in St. Petersburg

I hope whatever gets built there finds a way to engage both the trail to the east and the park to the west. That stretch of 22nd Ave N is in need of some redevelopment.

Tenants, developers interested in former Raytheon site in St. Petersburg
Jul 27, 2015, 7:13am EDT

A St. Louis company is considering multifamily, retail and mixed-use development for the former Raytheon Co. manufacturing site in St. Petersburg.

Commercial Development Company Inc. said Friday that it has closed on the 29-acre site at 1501 72nd St. N., which was home to a 500,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. Raytheon acquired the site in 1995 and consolidated the factory operations on another site in 1999. (See map below.)

Despite a location in the heart of a densely populated infill area, sandwiched between the Azalea Park neighborhoods and Tyrone Square Mall, the site has lain fallow for years because of environmental issues. CDC said those have been remediated and that the site is safe to be redeveloped.

90-room boutique hotel proposed for Dunedin Causeway
Jul 31, 2015, 12:43pm EDT

A 90-room hotel project on Causeway Boulevard in Dunedin is working its way through city and county approvals.

The five-story hotel is slated to occupy a piece of vacant land on the corner of Michael Place, a few blocks from the water and two miles east of Honeymoon Island State Park.

The developer is AV Florida Holdings LLC, which submitted the plans to the Dunedin City Commission in June. AV Florida’s principals are Benedikt Fritzsche and Eliza Garcia, owners of Best Western Plus Yacht Harbor Inn, a boutique hotel on the water at the west end of Main Street in Dunedin. That facility houses Bon Appetit Restaurant & Bar.

Tarpon Springs' iconic Pappas Riverside Restaurant site on the market as potential redevelopment play
Aug 28, 2015, 6:55am EDT Updated Aug 28, 2015, 7:15am EDT

Tampa Bay Business Journal

The parcels that are on the market.

The property that was once home to the iconic Pappas Riverside Restaurant in Tarpon Springs is for sale and being marketed as a potential redevelopment opportunity.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Property Group has had the listing for about a month, said Robb Sercu, managing director of the commercial division. Sercu and associates Kim Lohry, Keith Oster and Andy Masters are listing the property for owner Tarpon Restaurant Services LLC.

The restaurant and adjacent parking lot, which total 3 acres and are at the entrance to the city's sponge docks, are listed for $7.75 million. The offering includes all furniture, fixtures and six boat docks.

The 1,000-seat Pappas Riverside Restaurant, which was founded on the site in 1925, closed in 2005. The current building was built in 1975, according to Pinellas County property records. Tarpon Restaurant Services paid $6.25 million for the site in 2006.

Development surge underway in downtown Dunedin
By Steven Girardi | Tribune Staff
Published: September 6, 2015

DUNEDIN — Downtown was a lonely place when Sylvia and Artie Tzekas renovated a 1903 Florida Cracker house into a local-style seafood and Southern cuisine restaurant and bar.

“There was us and the Bon Appetit and that was it,” Sylvia Tzekas said.

Nearly 25 years later, the Tzekas’ Sea Sea Riders restaurant, 221 Main St., and the waterfront Bon Appetit restaurant beside the city’s marina are flourishing anchors at the west end of the popular Main Street district.

Known for its eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and taverns, the city’s compact downtown area is in the midst of a development surge, one that will bring hundreds of new residents. About 200 apartment and condo units either are under construction or expected to begin within the year.

Among them is the Victoria Place condominiums, with 30 residential units sitting atop 10,000 square feet of ground-level retail space across the street from Sea Sea Riders.

Now under construction, the $20 million Victoria Place project being developed by JMC Communities has 24 units sold, with prices from the mid-$400,000s to the high $800,000s. Bon Appetit’s owners bought out the retail space.
Quote:
In addition to Victoria Place, a long-delayed apartment project by Pizutti Builders came back to the city commission on Thursday and appears ready to break ground at the end of the year. The project has 128 apartments and 15,000 square feet of ground-level commercial space at downtown’s eastern Gateway at Main Street and Milwaukee Ave.

A townhouse development at Highland Street, just north of Main Street, is expected to add 49 units. Casco Viejo, which has two luxury condominiums above a two floors of commercial space, is under construction on a former impound lot at 479 Main St., squeezed between two restaurants.
Quote:
Meanwhile, a short distance south of downtown, the Taoist Tai Chi Society is deep into its formidable rehabilitation of the 1920s era Mediterranean-style Fenway hotel property on Edgewater Drive (Alternate 19) it bought three years ago for $2.8 million. The interior has been gutted and the structure is being reinforced where needed, society President Pegoty Packman said.
Quote:
The city council on Sept. 17 is scheduled to discuss building a parking garage or leasing land for surface parking, and whether to charge for parking, which some have argued would ruin downtown’s neighborhood charm.

The Pizutti project was approved last night. And for Dunedin, it's big:

Dunedin OKs plans for key downtown development
By TOM GERMOND
Article published on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015

DUNEDIN – Developers say they are looking forward to the ground breaking of the Gateway project on the east end of downtown Dunedin by the end of the year.

But they “can’t want it more than we do,” Mayor Julie Ward Bujalski said Sept. 3, referring to all the negotiations, discussions and setbacks pertaining to the proposed mixed-use development in the past several years.

Nevertheless, city commissioners are pleased with the project, and they gave tentative approval that evening for an amended agreement for the development.

The project, at Main Street, Milwaukee Avenue and Skinner Avenue, now features 128 apartments and 15,000 square feet of retail space. It also features a 4,000-square-foot restaurant. The total acreage for all parcels involved is 4.25.

Looks like they altered the color palette? I think this was mostly white before?

It's an exciting project for DT Dunedin's urbanization.

St. Pete Beach inches closer to new development
By: Steve Nichols, FOX 13 News
POSTED:SEP 11 2015 06:11PM EDT
UPDATED:SEP 11 2015 06:11PM EDT

ST. PETE BEACH (FOX 13) - In a curious contrast, redevelopment of aging resort properties is about to start on St. Pete Beach, years after hundreds and hundreds of new upscale rooms and suites started sprouting on Clearwater Beach.

The building boom that benefitted the more northern destination was blocked in St. Pete Beach by more than a decade of lawsuits over the beach town's development regulations. The legal disputes were settled last May, and the Plaza Beach Resorts is the first to run the gauntlet of new rules.

"It's still not an easy process, no," general manager Robert Czyszczon told FOX 13 News, adding it could take four or five months to obtain city approval.

RFP coming for Tarpon Spring's last city-owned vacant lot in Downtown:

Quote:
Tarpon Springs to sell downtown property for development

By JULIANA A. TORRES
Article published on Thursday, Oct. 22, 2015

TARPON SPRINGS – Citing an improved economy and a reinvigorated downtown, Economic Development Manager Karen Lemmons recommended Tarpon Springs try again to put a city-owned vacant lot up for sale.

“We’ve done a lot to create some energy into the downtown. So we think this is a good opportunity,” she said Oct. 20. “I think we will be successful this time and get some proposals back.”

The lot, at 144 E. Tarpon Ave., is the former Forbes property and the last of four city-owned downtown properties slated for new development. The city tried to sell it in 2012, with the hopes that a developer would be interested in transforming the land into a new business. However, the city had no response.

Developer hopes to bring apartments, retail and offices to ex-Nielsen site in Dunedin
By Ayana Stewart, Times Staff Writer
Thursday, November 12, 2015 11:01am

DUNEDIN — The long-vacant former Nielsen Media Research campus may soon see some activity.

Developer Primerica Group One wants to build 280 high-end apartments, 56 townhomes, 7,200 square feet of retail space and 44,600 square feet of office space on the 23-acre parcel.

Primerica has billed the project "Dunedin Commons."

The former Nielsen site, at 375 Patricia Ave., has been empty since 2005.

The foreclosed property is owned by Wells Fargo. Two years ago, the city granted the bank's request to change zoning from light industrial to mixed use in an effort to attract a buyer.
