Westin Hotel for downtown St Petersburg Florida?

A Westin hotel could possible be built just a few blocks from the Renaissance Vinoy Hotel in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. A Tampa developer, Fuel Group International, has planned a building – the tallest in the city – which would have a 260 room hotel along with 111 condominiums. At issue is the density, and the FAR (floor-area ratio). Neighbors – not surprisingly – are objecting. Would part of this be because the highrise would block views from the adjacent 475 Condominiums, a 7 story condo project that is not yet completed? The proposal is scheduled to be considered by the St Petersburg EDC Environmental Development Commission on May 2nd. The proposed location is at the southwest corner of 1st St N and Fifth Avenue N.

A tip of the hat to Paul Swider with the St. Petersburg Times.
