I don't believe this one ever had its own thread, since the last time we had any real news on it it was before we made individual project threads for St. Pete stuff.

ST. PETERSBURG — Nearly a decade after it was first proposed, a new boutique hotel in downtown St. Petersburg is finally under construction.

Workers are preparing the foundation of the Galaxy, an 11-story, 92-room hotel at Third Avenue N and First Street directly north off the Sundial shopping and entertainment plaza.

The city approved a site plan for the hotel in 2009 but developer and owner Savni Bakrac said today that he had to put the project on hold while architects redesigned the parking garage. Instead of being in the basement, as initially planned, it is now on the second level.

Drove through downtown St Pete, it is amazing how far things of come. I could not believe how big the city felt from the ground.

Everywhere you look there was activity and development.

There is still a lot of infill to be done but right now the city is on the map.

This is a great project.
