Just a short bike ride west from downtown is St. Pete’s eclectic Grand Central District and the popular Historic Kenwood neighborhood. Being a few blocks north of Central Avenue, the Kenwood neighborhood combines a proximity to walkable amenities with classic charming bungalows to create an authentic urban neighborhood. 

The unique nature of this community has spiked interest among real estate developers and homebuyers leading the area to be named one of the hottest zip codes in Tampa Bay for real estate. 

Looking to satisfy the increased demand in the area, Icon Residential is teaming up with Crestview Realty and Clear pH to introduce a new townhome community just north of Historic Kenwood. Dubbed Uptown Kenwood, this new development will be built on 13th Avenue North and 25th Street North just a short distance from Booker Park. 

With a total of sixty-nine townhomes, Uptown Kenwood will be marketed toward young professionals and those wanting to be close to Downtown St. Pete. Floor plans will range from 1,500 square feet for a two bedroom, two bath unit to 2,100 square feet for a three bedroom, 2.5 bath unit. Community amenities include a lushly landscaped pool and dog park.

Prices will start in the mid $200s and top out in the high $300s, which represents a range that has been in high demand lately due to an increase in young families and first-time homeowners moving to St. Pete. And historically, a majority of homes in the Kenwood area were only built with two bedrooms and one bath, whereas the units in Uptown Kenwood will be a welcome addition to those seeking a larger home with three bedrooms and two baths. 

Each building’s architecture will have an urban feel by design with modern metal and wood accents featuring balconies and exposed concrete block columns. 

Uptown Kenwood’s sales center recently opened at 2448 Central Avenue and the developers are currently offering incentives for the first 10 reservations. Construction of phase 1 is expected to begin in March.
