Bring Apple to downtown St Pete!

BayWalk in downtown St Petersburg

 Bill Edwards plans to open up the front of Baywalk, rename it, and fill it with tenants we’ll want to patronize. One of the companies he’s talking with is Apple. Yes, yes, please bring Apple to St Pete. An Apple store would keeps locals coming back and attract visitors as well.

BayWalk looks nice in its new paint

BayWalk looks nice in its new paint, lighter and fresher. We also like the colorful wraps in the windows of empty stores rather than views of empty spaces. It makes sense to rejuvenate the property before putting in new tenants.

BayWalk played a major role in the development of today’s desirable downtown St Pete. We look forward to seeing what Bill Edwards will do with it. Edwards has been successful in turning around the Mahaffey Theater and The Club at Treasure Island and we anticipate the same results at BayWalk.

Baywalk in downtown St Petersburg was foreclosed today.

Baywalk St Petersburg FloridaBaywalk retail complex in downtown St Petersburg was offered at auction today and Wells Fargo Bank has now foreclosed and owns Baywalk. Some of the original tenants are still operating, such as Gratzzi’s restaurant, Chico’s and Muvico, and others that came later such as Shapiro’s and Grill 121.

Baywalk was instrumental in the redevelopment of St. Petersburg and we owe a great deal to the original developers. We understand it’s the plan for Wells Fargo to redevelop the property and spruce it up before actively offering it for sale.

Fred Bullard took over ownership of the property early last fall, in hopes of renewing it himself – but, the renovation loan didn’t happen, so neither did the renovations. We’ll see how Wells Fargo does at turning it around.
