Dunedin Causeway to get hotel; officials say it will fill tourism gap

Tribune Staff Published: December 5, 2015Updated: December 5, 2015 at 01:18 PM

DUNEDIN — A 2.4-acre sandy lot, one of the few vacant parcels along Dunedin Causeway Boulevard, will become the site of the causeway’s first hotel.

City commissioners voted unanimously to rezone the property at 2641 Michael Place on Thursday to allow a 90-room, five-story hotel and a 4,000-square-foot restaurant along the road that leads from the mainland to Honeymoon Island.

The hotel is being developed by Benedickt Fritzsche and Eliza Garcia, principals of AV Florida Holdings LLC and owners of Best Western Plus Yacht Harbor Inn on the downtown waterfront.

Tarpon Springs Eco Village Development is approved and moving forward. 13 units total. Eastern half of the bock bound by Center, Orange, Ring and Safford. Only one block from the Downtown strip.

The project claims to be 100% power sustainable, meaning you'll never have an electric bill.

Madeira Beach condo proposal. Not sure if this is on here in another thread but anyway....

Just saw this on ABC action news about a new development and of course all the old farts (that already have one foot in the grave) are opposed.

http://www.tampabay.com/news/busines...ctions/2261319

It looks beautiful IMO and way better than all the other old, drab shit around there. GET YOUNGER, PINELLAS BEACHES!!

Dunedin City Commission addresses delays in Gateway project
By TOM GERMOND
Article published on Friday, March 4, 2016

DUNEDIN – City officials are confident that a key development project will move forward despite their frustration expressed at a recent meeting over delays.

Dunedin City Commissioners gave final approval to the mixed-use project at Main Street, Milwaukee Avenue and Skinner Avenue Sept 17. Referred to as the Gateway development, it includes 15,000 square feet of retail space, a 4,000-square-foot restaurant and 128 apartments on 4.25 acres.

City Attorney Tom Trask said March 3 that he was glad that the developers, Pizzuiti Dunedin LLC, have met a number of requests from commissioners in February, including confirmation that construction financing has been approved.

Massive makeover proposed for Madeira Beach's Town Center
By Sheila Mullane Estrada, Times Correspondent
Wednesday, March 9, 2016 4:20pm

MADEIRA BEACH — An $80- to $100-million redevelopment project that would include multiple hotels, condominiums, a marina and new retail space could be coming to the business heart of the city.

The nearly 7-acre Town Center project follows closely on the heels of a controversial hotel-condominium-retail redevelopment of the former Leverock's site on the south side of the Madeira Causeway, just west of the bridge.

The Leverock's project, approved by the Planning Commission but yet to receive City Commission approval, is raising strong opposition from nearby residents who argued that the buildings are too high and the entire project will create unacceptable traffic congestion.

Similar objections are certain to meet this latest project, proposed by Bill Karns, a Treasure Island-based developer whose foundation raised over a half-million dollars for the city's new ROC Park recreation and entertainment center.

^I've heard about the Leverock's project as well. It's been making news over there but we haven't really been covering it:

Quote:
As proposed, the planned development project on the southeast side of 150th Avenue at the western base of the Tom Stuart Causeway bridge would include: a 10-story, 175-unit hotel; a 150-unit condo hotel; 68 condominium units; 25,000 square feet of commercial space with a 200-seat restaurant; and a marina with 38 boat slips.

In total, there would be six buildings of varying height from 34 feet to 117 feet tall on the 4.59-acre site where Leverock's restaurant once stood.


Quote:
After the first public hearing last month drew significant opposition, Crawford said his staff asked the developer to consider paring back the project.

That overture resulted in a two-floor reduction in height and a 16 percent cut in the number of hotel rooms.

"They have reduced the height and density. They heard you," Crawford said.
Quote:
In total, there would be 272 temporary lodging units in the hotels (a drop of 53 units), 68 condominium units and 18,000 square feet of commercial space, a reduction of 7,000 square feet.

The commission will vote on the project at its March 16 and April 12 meetings.

I have never understood height and traffic complaints. There is absolutely nothing over there right now. A bunch of crappy strip centers. If you create this kind of development, then yes maybe there will some more traffic, but walk-ability of the place should go up.

New live, work, play, stay places coming to Downtown Dunedin
KIMBERLY PATTERSON | TUESDAY, MARCH 08, 2016

The sounds of construction are back in Downtown Dunedin with a new mixed-use building going up and other projects just beginning or in the works.

Victoria Place

Located at 821 Victoria Drive in Dunedin, Victoria Place is under construction. This mixed-use building will house 30 units and eight retail spaces when it is completed later this year.

There are several factors that make Victoria Place an attractive place for future residents, including “the urban lifestyle that Dunedin offers,” says Claudia Emery of Victoria Place. “The walkability to events, restaurants and boutique shops is a draw to the community.”

Developer and contractor JMC Communities Inc. along with architect BSB Design Inc. are working on the project, which is expected to be completed fall of 2016.

That would give Dunedin 4 breweries (Dunedin Brewery, 7eventh Sun, HOB brewery, and Woodwright) with 1 under construction (Caledonia) and one planned (Soggy Bottom). There is also Cotherman Distillery.

Dunedin is a pretty cool place and it is about time there is some residential development in-town. I would move there in a heartbeat if it fit my commute.

Madeira Beach could soon see towering developments
Jerome R. Stockfisch on Google+ Published: March 20, 2016Updated: March 21, 2016 at 06:57 AM

MADEIRA BEACH — The Tom Stuart Causeway is the gateway to this beach city, taking motorists over the Intracoastal Waterway past a vacant lot, condo complexes and a 1950s-era strip mall with aqua awnings that is home to a tattoo parlor, nail spa, e-cigarette shop and other small businesses.

The entrance to Madeira Beach could change dramatically if a pair of Pinellas County developers succeed with plans for those tired properties. Picture three large hotels up to 11 stories tall with 700 new rooms. More than 160 new condo units. New retail development to the tune of 63,000 square feet.

New marinas and a dockmaster building. Pedestrian-friendly walkways, a public plaza and an overpass spanning busy Gulf Boulevard.

June 14th is the big day for Madeira Beach:

Opponents gathering signatures to derail Madeira Beach developments, repeal land use ordinance
Sheila Mullane Estrada, Times Correspondent
Friday, May 20, 2016 6:12pm

MADEIRA BEACH — Opponents of two multi-million dollar redevelopments in the city's downtown have exactly one month to collect enough signatures to stop the projects, at least temporarily.

On Tuesday, five residents filed a petition affidavit, the first step in a process that could force a citywide referendum to repeal the city's planned development ordinance.

At issue is whether city officials should have the right to approve taller, more dense developments than allowed under ordinary zoning rules.

Technically, there is no time limit for the group to collect sufficient signatures, but to stop the projects from moving forward, they need to file their petition signatures before June 14.

Madeira Beach development projects get City Commission's okay
By Sheila Mullane Estrada, Times Correspondent
Thursday, May 12, 2016 6:54am

MADEIRA BEACH — With only two apparently pro-forma votes to go, it appears certain the character and appearance of this island city is about to change dramatically.

Required rezoning for two massive redevelopment projects valued at nearly $200 million were approved by the City Commission on Tuesday that will bring new hotels, hundreds of new condominium units, restaurants, retail stores and marinas to the city's downtown core.

The actual details of the developments — the Madeira Beach Town Center complex in the city's downtown core and the Holiday Isles project at the southwestern foot of the Madeira Beach Causeway Bridge — will be itemized in development agreements scheduled for commission approval on June 14.

Dunedin's historic Fenway to become public, boutique hotel
Megan ReevesMegan Reeves, Times Staff Writer
Tuesday, May 17, 2016 1:39pm

The revamping of the historic Fenway Hotel has long been a dream for residents and city leaders. By next spring, when the 1920s building is expected to once again open its doors to the public, developers say that dream will become reality.

The building's owner, Taoist Tai Chi Society of the USA, has been renovating for months to turn the space into its new national headquarters. But after hearing feedback from the public, the nonprofit has partnered with a Tampa-based hotel developer to make the space double as a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel, complete with more than 100 public rooms, a bar, a pool and a restaurant.

Sean Dennison, executive director of the tai chi society, said it was clear the public wanted to be a part of whatever happened to the Fenway. Seeing itself as a community partner, the nonprofit wanted to make that happen.
