St Petersburg City Council again turns down Westin Hotel and Condo Residences

Not surprisingly, the St Petersburg City Council once again bowed to votes and turned down the application from Fuel Group to build a Westin Hotel and Condominium Residences at the corner of 1st St N and 5th Ave N in downwotn Saint Petersburg.

Why don’t the neighborhood opponents put their efforts into changing the zoning requirements rather than into opposing someone who has met the letter of the law? Why not advocate for a transition zone between Downtown and the Neighborhood? By successfully lobbying the City Council they have opened the door for a lawsuit from Fuel Group. If they have the same success as a developer thwarted by the Hyde Park residents in Tampa who felt the building didn’t fit, the neighborhood only caused the city to be liable for not following their own rules.
