The development team behind what will be the first mixed-use development in the Edge District, Orange Station, has released new renderings offering a glimpse of its residential amenities. 

The Orange Station development is currently under construction at the site of the old St. Pete Police headquarters, at 1301 Central Ave. 

The entire development includes five buildings that will include a total of 103 residential units with workforce housing units, up to 106,000 square feet of office space, 21,400 square feet of commercial space and a 600-space parking garage for public and private use.

The development team for the project is being led by Edge Central Development Partners, a joint venture group involving St. Petersburg-based J Square, Tampa-based DDA Development and Backstreets Capital.

The residential component of the development is dubbed The Residences at Orange Station and it will feature 61 modern one-, two- and three-bedroom homes.  

The Residences at Orange Station’s units will range from 1,210 to 2,367 square feet. They will feature industrial-style floor-to-ceiling windows, designer finish packages, and luxury appliances and plumbing fixtures. The prices are anticipated to start in the $600,000s, according to a news release.

Community amenities will include a ground-floor courtyard with a plunge pool and fire table. On the sixth floor, there will be workstations, a fitness center and wellness studio, and entertaining spaces including an expansive terrace with an alfresco kitchen.

The release also noted that there will be a secured grand lobby that will feature rotating works of local art and will offer a concierge service and Amazon storage lockers for residents. 

The demolition of the old St. Pete Police HQ at the site commenced in late October. Construction for the development is expected to begin this fall and be completed in 2023.  

The project was named Orange Station to give a nod to its history as it once served as the site for the Orange Belt Railway. 

There’s an adjacent pad of land that was slated to become an office development. However, due to the shifts in the market, the development group said it may now become the site of a hotel.
