Reservations Remain Strong as ONE St. Petersburg Releases New Penthouse Renders

With the tailwinds of a red hot downtown real estate market at its back, ONE St. Petersburg has continued to far exceeded expectations.

Since having an official grand opening event in February around 120 units have been reserved, representing sales of over $126 million. Dave Traynor, of Smith & Associates, said about a third of the reservations have come from existing St. Pete residents while another third have come from other areas in Tampa Bay.
