The fourth quarter of 2016 saw an enormous amount of progress on many of Downtown St. Pete's active developments. The demolition of the "cheese grater" building at 400 Central Ave concluded. The Rowdies launched an official campaign to join the MLS, which included an expanded Al Lang Stadium. A new site plan was approved for 801 Central, which now includes a 15 and 7-story apartment building and ground-level retail.
Also, a few projects broke ground including Bainbridge 930 Central Flats, and retail along 1st Ave S that will house an Orangetheory Fitness and a yet-to-be-determined restaurant.
Additionally, AER Apartments and The Hermitage Apartment Homes started leasing, which helped to relieve the extremely low apartment occupancy rates that Downtown St. Pete has grown accustomed to over the past few years.
Looking to the future, we should see the groundbreaking of a few notable projects this coming quarter including The Brownstones, 801 Conway, The District on 9th, and the Museum of the American Arts and Crafts Movement.

Downtown St. Pete has experienced an overabundance of construction over the past three months. It's nearly impossible to walk through downtown and not run into a construction site. For starters, the demolition of the "cheese grater" building at 400 Central Ave begun. In the EDGE District, The District on 9th townhouses were announced and the site of Bainbridge 930 Central Flats started to undergo site preparation in anticipation for new apartments and retail. Also, The Chihuly Collection completed their move from Beach Drive to 720 Central Ave. We cannot wait for these projects to be complete, but for now we hope you enjoy this quarter's photo update!
