Westin Hotel and Condos St Petersburg FL – Think Beyond the Print

Recent articles in the newspaper have described the location for this project as "the corner of 1st St North and 5th Avenue N" and north of a power substation. On that corner, in that location, is a small convenience store and a parking lot. Based on the description, it’s easy to imagine this as the site for the downtown St Pete hotel and condos, and believe it is far too small for the project. Nothing has been mentioned about the project also encompassing some homes to the west, so that the project would go from 1st Street all the way to 475, a new downtown St Pete condo project. Look at the other projects rising along 5th Avenue North between Beach Drive and 4th Street – when you have big buildings by the street and have to look up to see the top, does it really matter just how many stories that is? Let’s see the plans, how it appears on the street, how they’re handling traffic, and then address how it affects the neighborhood. Let’s look at the site plan and all the facts first, rather than having a knee jerk reaction.
