St Petersburg Penthouses: Vinoy Place

 Vinoy Place has four towers so it has four penthouses. Each one is the entire top floor. The sizes range from 5,013 sq ft to 5,359 sq ft plus lots of balcony space. The elevators have fobs so that each owner can have complete privacy or can allow guests to stop at their condo. Parking is covered and most of it is under the buildings. The towers at Vinoy Place are mid-rises so each of the penthouses is on the 13th floor. 

The amenities at Vinoy Place include a security gate that is staffed 24/7, two pools, a conference room, a billiard room, a TV area, a catering kitchen and various gathering rooms. There is an onsite manager. Vinoy Place does not have a fitness center as the developers expected that most owners would join the Vinoy Club and use the fitness center at the adjacent Vinoy Resort. Many owners do join the Vinoy Club to also use the tennis courts, golf course and marina.

One of the penthouses at Vinoy Place is currently on the market at $3,200,000. Please contact The Simms Team at ALVA International, Inc for more information or to arrange a showing.

Ovation clients hear Interior Designer Troy Beasley

Todd Beasley speaking to JMC audienceTodd Beasley, interior designer, speaks to Ovation owners and friends of JMC.

This evening at the Museum of Fine Arts in St Petersburg, Florida, JMC invited owners of Ovation, a luxury condo in downtown St Pete, and other friends to hear Todd Beasley, Interior Designer, talk about Hot Trends. Todd is designing two model condominiums in Ovation, JMC’s latest luxury condo project.

The evening began with a cocktail reception in the outdoor garden of the Museum of Fine Arts and
Ovation reception at the Museum of Fine Arts St Petersburg continued in the Marly Room where Todd Beasley shared the latest Hot Trends in interior design and how to evaluate them. Todd shared slides representative of the trends and stayed after his presentation to discuss specific questions and concerns of the attendees. Beasley & Henley (Stephanie Henley is wife and partner of Todd Beasley) have worked with JMC for nearly a decade and find that JMC really cares for its clients. I’ve found, after working with JMC for two decades, that they build a superior product, care about their customers and listen to them, and truly stand behind their construction.

Tonight was a typical example of how they add continuing value to their clients and friends.

Ovation St Petersburg is Rising to the Occasion

JMC invited some of us today to visit the construction of Ovation luxury condominiums in St Petersburg. We were able to go up into the building, look at the views, and see what you’d see from each room. Fantastic views! This will be a 27 story structure, with only 2 condominiums per floor, which means you get both sunrises and sunsets. The top penthouses have the entire floor.
