Last night StPeteRising.com posted on social media about it, and today’s Tampa Bay Times article confirms that the vacant land (currently looks like a fenced in park) at 400 Central Avenue will be vacant not too much longer – with plans for another soaring tower in downtown St. Pete that will include luxury condos, a 200 room hotel, event space and possibly office space.
In a full page ad in the New York Times, The Red Apple group unveiled a “draft” rendering of an unnamed approximately 50-story tower that will be taller than anything on Florida’s west coast except for the proposed Riverwalk Place in downtown Tampa. The newly completed and currently tallest residential building in Downtown St. Petersburg, ONE St. Petersburg condominiums tops out at 41-stories.
The Apple Group building designed by the Miami firm Arquitectonica will be angled northeast to southwest on the now-vacant 400 block of Central Avenue. The tower appears to be encircled by narrow, wavy bands. Those actually are balconies, although they are subject to change as the architects are doing final drawings. Plans are to begin breaking ground in the first quarter of this year.
The project will consist of a single building that will include around 325 condos and 800 parking spaces. The ad in the New York times boasted that the tower will have “breathtaking views of Tampa Bay” as well as an “exclusive full serve boutique hotel and event space.”
As with ONE, pre-construction is when buyers will have the biggest opportunity to get the best pricing on this new condo tower. If you’d like to be notified immediately when pre-construction pricing is released, please fill out the form below.
