Tropicana Center approved by St Petersburg EDC

St. Petersburg, Florida, June 6, 2007

The Environmental Development Commission today approved the Tropicana Center proposal for twin towers with condos, hotel and retail to be built in downtown St Petersburg, covering the block from Central Avenue to 1st Ave N and from 1st St N to 2nd St N.  Giving the city its wanted north-south pedestrian walkway in the center, connecting BayWalk with the South Core Parking garage, the project gained a vacation of the east-west alley dividing the block. The main objection to the project had been raised by Tim Baker, who was also a lead objector to the Fuel Group hotel-condominium project proposed for 1st St N and 5th Ave N.

Tropicana Center is planning two towers. The 36 story tower on the west will have 151 hotel rooms and 264 condo units, as well as 400 parking spaces and 46,000 sq ft of retail space. The  33 story tower on the east will have 321 condo homes, 480 parking spaces, and 46,000 sq ft of retail space. The two towers will be perpendicular, with different architectural styles.

With completion not scheduled until 2012, prices have not yet been announced for the downtown condominiums but sizes are expected to range from 850 sq ft to 1,250 sq ft.
