St.Petersburg/Clearwater Photos

I figure since Tampa has its own photothread why not make one for St.Petersburg/Clearwater i figure combining the two cities works because they work with each other and also we dont have that many clearwater pics so combining is better.

Downtown St.Pete pics from my cellphone






bayshore plaza from baywalk



I-275/I-175 Interchange


The Pier at Clearwater Beach and the Beach itself





The Pirate Ship







US19 and Drew St Overpass



Excuse the quality its all from my camera phone.

I live in Downtown St. Petersburg in the Madison....I just switched to Verizon and got the V phone with a 1.3mp camera, so now I don't have to carry a camera around and can take pics daily, to avoid posts...I will just edit this post everytime I update.

This is just a test image of a 1.3 megapixel 1280x960 compressed JPEG that has been "enhanced" for the web and shrunk down to 800x600 so that everyone can enjoy random Downtown St. Petersburg area only pics without eating up bandwidth or older monitor space. Any complaints just message me on here to avoid another post. Thanks...at least this image is an example of the average condo priced in the 350-400k(didn't pay anywhere near that price two years ago) range of a "young professional ". The camera doesn't work very well at night and I'm not walking outside right now with an expensive 5mp professional camera from Sony with all of the wonderful crack head homeless that appear at night except weekends, then they stay near baywalk instead....The Madison is located across from The Progress Energy Center for the Arts(Mahaffey Theater/new Salvador Dali Museum/new Center Plaza and Waterfront Urban Park...all after knocking down the crappy old bayfront center). There are a ton of projects that are under construction and have broke some type of ground/secured financing...dozens of row/townhome developments along 4th Ave S north of 4th street and going on up to the trop *amazing, I didn't even expect this so fast*, USF Dorms (Finished), USF Parking Garage (Finished), Barnes & Noble(2 floors of the parking garage) on 5th Street with the 4th Starbucks in DT U/C, McNulty Lofts(finished and people moving in), one of the nations largest All Children's Hospital with the *Wal-Mart ER* U/C, The Sage U/C, Orion Condos U/C, The Signature U/C, The Edge (breaking ground), The Heights at Madison (last property, a dentist, sold a few months ago.), Sembler Tower on Beach (has bought up all properties and closed them down for planned demolition), Progress Energy Tower U/C (can be seen from just about everywhere downtown), Kessler Hotel/Condo(facing 2nd street, right now a dirt lot and a very unpleasant view of the side of the new Progress Energy Tower that will eventually connect to the other project but right now looks like a 12 story concrete wall with glass windows above that void. I hope Kessler starts soon, but its hard as hell to secure financing for condotels, especially with this being only the second brand in the upscale chain), tons of Central Ave Condos ranging from a few units to 100s actually U/C, The Ovation from JMC is also being fast tracked because of demand for these high-priced condos on Beach Drive. On the other side of town, which will be less updated because I usually take I-175 to anything I can't walk to at the moment but see at least 3 times or more a week...these projects are larger and going up fast. The W Plaza U/C, W Flats @ The Palladium (finished and great infill), 400 Beach Drive (now taller than the Presbyterian Tower? behind it), 4th Street hotel/condo project w/ addition to the historic part finishing fast, clearing land for another project I will explore when I have time this week, bayway seems to be totally dead(with city officials doubting anything will occur anytime soon on that property, hes going to turn it over like other properties he seems to be doing all over Pinellas..nix this project totally, it was starting to look like something on the strip in Las Vegas at last rendering anyway), The Arts Center Village(nice name for two large towers on central in the center of the core, not near water) is advertising all over downtown, Walker-Whitney is doing something with the property that is on 5th ave n and 4 st, they were going to sell it, I guess the two other W projects did so well...I can and will think and gather/explore the rest of the projects to give them an existence here. There are a lot of large and small projects I didn't even mention that I have no idea about other than dirt is moving at this point.

TEST

It's a little old from last year when Parkshore was still rising from the ground and Progress Energy wasn't even started yet but I thought it would add to the thread until I can get back to Progress Energy on Weedon Island to take a some newer pics. In two years it'll really look different...

Here is a pic(a lil blurry) i took tonight in downtown i think st.pete should put lighting on the buildings. Just look how dark the downtown looks even in Tampa you can see alot of the major buildings we need to light up ours too. Click refresh if it still shows up really big.



Here is a pic of Sand Key.

Here are some pics from downtown st.pete that i took today.














Anyone know whats this building called?



Progress Energy almost done, i like it! I hate to say it but a spire would make it look even better.


I tried taking a pic of downtown in between I-175 and I-375 but this stupid red SUV blocked my view so i took this a few miles up with interstate.



Hit a bump when i took this pic from the car





From my camera phone





On US 19 before a storm

The little restaurant/pub next the Grayl's Hotel in the top picture is one of my favorite places to eat in downtown. Moon Under Water - It is a great English pub. I love their curry.

Nice pictures by the way!

Parkshore Plaza looks ok, a little to much beach style for my taste in downtown. And the color sceme and how they put it together is iffy. Progress Energy looks good though and I'm hoping Beach Drive will too. St. Pete will begin to look like a big city when Edge, Signature, Bohemien, and Ovation are U/C. They are all more arcitectually urban style towers. But overall St. Pete is looking good. Does anyone think they could snap some pictures of Clearwater?

Thanks for filling my request, I-275westcoastfl. I haven't been to downtown Clearwater in a few years atleast. I'll have to go back soon and see how it is. Hopefully Clearwater will get some more impressive towers soon, I see a few cranes.
