That's 'The Arts' project. They're nice buildings. nothing earth shattering and a little beachy for downtown. Even though they're a little spread out from downtown. But the key is the Cuheley Art exhibit which makes this a huge plus. If anything it'll make a nice entrance to downtown, and add another addition to St. Pete's abundance of museums and art exhibits.

Look at St. Pete in the renders makes me notice how much oppurtunity there is for the city to grow. More than any other city in the Tampa Bay area, even Tampa

I went by DT St. Pete today on I-275, and the Progress Energy tower looks great. It's excellent infill. Also the Opus project is about half as tall as Parkshore Plaza, or about 15 stories up. There's also a mess of cranes on the Southern end of Downtown, not sure which projects though. Are there any updates on Edge, Signatue Place, or Grand Boheimian?

When I have my whole company and all, My first proposal will be for St.Pete. You have an open canvas of oppurtunity just waiting to be painted on.

I'd love to see updates on what is U/C and what is proposed.

Hint, hint.

I'll finish the Tampa thread if someone does St. Pete. ;-)

LOL dont wanna be president anymore? Anyway i agree with you DT St.Pete has lots of potential to grow and already has a more urban feel than downtown tampa. The towers look ok nothing spectacular but just normal towers it would also ruin getting a good skyline pic from the interstate because they block the view.

Help me out guys; I live in that OTHER city across the bay and can't tell where this Arts project is supposed to be. My only landmark in downtown is the ball field, which is about where I'm guessing the camera in the first shot is. That would make the triangular building on the right the AAA, and across the street toward the edge of frame is the old Winn-Dixie, and then at the very bottom of frame left of center is the U-Haul building. Am I right? And has there always been a huge pond with a fountain in downtown? I would swear I've never seen that before.

The project is between Centarl Ave. and 2nd Ave. S on Dr.MLK St N. A block east of the main parking lot.

I like the design of The Arts, but am disheartened that it's so far removed from the financial district. I has assumed it would be closer to the water.

Only reason that I have come up for that they built so far is because they were trying to avoid the high property cost in the area.

Yea it looks alone, but like newport said it was costs also i think the height limit doesnt exist there? Not that it would matter in this case. But i think that whenever hi-rises start being built again its going to expand in that direction.

No, all the Iranians on here hate me, because I don't like their government and blame them for the increase of insurgents in Iraq. Would you be ok after that?
