ST. PETE | Union Trust | 15 stories | 164 feet | 377 units | historic rehab | APR

8-story apartment and retail development (with renders) brewing for the old Union Trust Bank building on Central if you look at the St Pete Community Planning and Preservation Commission Report for 12/08/15.

ST. PETE | 801 Central | 8 stories | residential/retail | historic rehab | PRP

So the developer wants to tear down the 1938 and 1967 additions to the 1926 building. The original 1926 portion will be rehabbed.

Here's the file

http://www.stpete.org/committee%20pa...8%20Report.pdf

Interesting enough, the report says the original 1926 building was built with the intention to be a base for 15 more stories of construction. The building expanded outward instead of upward though.

I can't find unit or retail sf count in the file for the project itself.

Both the demolition and the rehab are recommended for approval with conditions.

Here's renderings:

This is a very different type of project but it ties in very well with this part of central. A block over from the new Publix. Blocks from Tropicana as well. The west portion of downtown is picking up!

Developers sure do love building these massive slabs. There's this concept in urban development called "going vertical".

I would've liked to see a taller footprint, but I am all for this development. Currently, the 800 block is an eyesore of Central Ave. It effectively breaks up downtown with the EDGE district. This development will reconnect Central Ave, in my opinion.

Also, it looks like the developers kept the preservationists in mind by keeping the original 1926 building. Their reasons for demoing the 1938 and 1967 additions are: "The 1938 and 1967 additions have very large, windowless facades, making their reuse unattractive to potential lessees. Installing numerous new openings would change the design and would be difficult with the limestone veneer. Lastly, the location and size of the additions would make it difficult to construct a parking garage that would be required for redevelopment of the remaining portion of the block."

Wish they could've had walk-ups or something on the sides without retail.

Those are key blocks but yeah on the backside off the project would've been perfect for walk up units. Also it would've been nice if it was more mixed use with office space on level 2 & 3 fronting central

I noticed this is the same architect as Bliss, The Salvador, Armature Works building and the Prospect Pier proposal.

Long-vacant historic bank at Central Ave and 9th Street could find new life as apartments...

Yes! The 800 and 900 blocks were gaps between the enlivened blocks to the east and the EDGE district to the west. Combined with Publix/Chihully in the 800 block, this would certainly help fill the gap. Publix must have known this was coming down the pike as well.

"The city’s Community Planning and Preservation Commission approved a proposal Tuesday that would preserve the original 1926 Union Trust Co. building at 801 Central Ave. but demolish additions made in 1938 and 1967."

"The project still requires approval by the city council."

"The city staff recommended approval, with the conditions that the developer submit appropriate plans and gains financing. It also requires the developer to submit photographs of the interior and exterior of the 1926 building before construction."

Also, now being developed by The Related Group. Curious how you guys compare this to the Tribune site proposal?

There is no comparison. This is a real urban development which integrates into the streetscape. This is placemaking. The Tribune project is a flipper's delight doing the absolute bare minimum to sneak past city regulators.


Bonus points for the tripartite massing, which helps break up the scale and give it visual highlights.

Project looks excellent, and yes, this is much better then the Tribune lot project.

Even though I am partial to Tribunes glass cubes. They are going to be a landmark and be in every 20-somethings Instagram posts when they're done.

Ok so we can agree this one is good, right? It's not missing any phalanges, facing the wrong direction, it's not dive-bar deficient, look too much like that one building in the nightmare when you were 5, have the wrong kind of awnings for St Pete, have an offensive odor that you can perceive through the drawings, be too tall and too short at the same time, or have too many lanes for anyone's liking, right?
