How did this awesome post go south... This is a big improvement than what was proposed before. I'm happy to see the related group finally add a project on this side of the Bay. Now if we can just get an skyhouse somewhere in the edge district. Lol one can wish!

The glass curtain walls will be covered with blinds/shades. And for most people walking along, they will see the cheap stucco sides of the building as much as the glass ends caps fronting the river. It's not going to catch anyone's eye as attractive architecture, I promise you that.

I personally think the approved design is compromised enough that they may have trouble keeping the place filled at their asking rents. Maybe not at first because people won't know any better, but when renewals come up.

Unless there is tint or glazing on the windows then it might not be so bad.

There's a bulldozer and excavator on site. The fence is wrapped with Related and contractor signage. Site prep will probably begin any day now I would imagine. First step is probably to demolish historic building additions (but not the historic part). They're only saving 1/3rd of the existing Union Trust building.

Edit: Also the thread title needs to be updated as this project is 177 feet with 377 units.

Demo has begun on what I feel is the most important project in DTSP right now. An entire city block of development. Hopefully since central is filling up, developers will begin to focus on First ave S and N.

From Tampa Bay Times:

Developer razes most of St. Pete’s historic Union Trust building


"Related will hold ground-breaking ceremonies in December for the Central Avenue tower..."
