Sometimes it seems like all of St. Petersburg’s growth is happening downtown. And there’s no doubt that part of town is booming with new construction. But there are exciting developments sprouting up in other neighborhoods of St. Pete too.
Back in March, a senior housing developer, Prevarian Senior Living, purchased a parcel of land near Tyrone Square Mall for $5.18 million. In May, American House St. Petersburg, a senior housing community, broke ground on the corner of 9th Avenue and 66th Street. The development will feature 165 units and offer independent living, assisted living and memory care services in a resort-style setting.
The project is being co-developed by Prevarian Senior Living and American House Senior Living Communities, one of the country’s largest owners and operators of senior living communities.
“For over three years, Prevarian has invested considerable resources in American House St. Petersburg to ensure it best serves the evolving needs of this vibrant, growing community,” said Allan Brown, Partner, Prevarian Senior Living. “We are grateful for the support that we’ve received from the City, our surrounding neighborhoods, and to American House for bringing their brand of excellence to St. Petersburg.”
Amenities will include a swimming pool, bistro, theater, spa, salon, fitness and wellness center, game lounge, activities center and more.
“American House St. Petersburg is a natural addition to our Florida portfolio, and allows us to serve even more seniors in the state of Florida.” said Dale Watchowski, CEO, American House Senior Living Communities. This will be the company’s ninth senior living center in Florida and first in the Tampa Bay area.
American House St Petersburg is scheduled to open in the fall of 2020. Follow them on Facebook to stay up-to-date on construction progress.
