Developer Jack Dougherty is planning to create a new mixed-use project in the emerging Skyway Marina District, adjacent to his current development.

Plans have been filed for the St. Pete Development Review Commission to review a proposed mixed-use project at 4311 34th Street South. The project entails constructing an eight-story, 400 unit residential building, a 4,500-square-foot restaurant, a 95,000-square-foot self-storage facility and a 2,400-square-foot bank with a drive-thru, according to the plans filed.

The DRC is scheduled to review the item July 7.

The land is owned by California-based Maximo Plaza Inc. but is under contract for purchase by Dougherty, of St. Petersburg-based Allied Group Holdings.

The eight-acre property has direct frontage on 34th Street South/US 19, which is an arterial road with heavy traffic.

The site is adjacent to the 245-unit Marina Walk apartment complex, which is currently under construction. The Marina Walk project is also being developed by Allied Group Holdings, which bought the southern parcel from the same owner, Maximo Plaza Inc.

The residential apartment building dubbed Marine Beach will overlook Boca Ciega Bay. The planned bank will be on the northeast corner of the property along with a well-known, fast-casual restaurant and a LifeStorage self-storage facility, according to the site plans and description.

The developer anticipates that residents of the apartment complex, as well as the existing 800 storage tenants of the shopping center being displaced as a result of the redevelopment, will be customers of the storage units.

There will be a total of 750 storage units built to replace the 800 current units, according to the plans filed.

The new building will also have 900 square feet of office area.

    Awesome! The area is in need of dining . Maximo storage is an eyesore. St Pete Beach is a gem. It deserves modern, clean, welcoming development. Welcome to the neighborhood!
