How are Urban Landings and Harbour's Edge in the same complex?

The other day while viewing my site stats I noticed an interesting search term brought a viewer to this blog. The term was: "how are harbour's edge and urban landings the same apartment complex". It's a very valid question that I thought I'd clear up. Many times on this site I have referred to the "Urban Edge" apartment project. But Urban Edge is actually a complex consisting of two seperate communities. One community is Urban Landings and the other is Harbour's Edge. These two names combine to give the project name "Urban Edge".

TBT: Photos of St.Pete construction projects

From the Tampa Bay Times-

"Downtown St. Petersburg seems to have grown a forest of construction cranes in the past few weeks. Several large projects are rising on what were once vacant lots or parking lots. All of the projects, which are in various stages of building, will be rentals and are scheduled for completion later this year or in 2014. Photographer Chris Zuppa took these aerial photos on June 29 to show progress on each."

Urban Edge will have 125 units, forty market-rate units and 85 senior units financed with affordable housing tax credits.
