A new modern luxury residential project with lofts is expected to break ground soon, delivering a new product in the Grand Central District. 

The project is dubbed 2700 Central, named after its location on Central Avenue and 27th Street; it will have 2,100 square feet of living space and 2,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space that will front Central.

The concept is from Modern Tampa Bay Homes, known for its customized luxury homes in the region. The group has partnered with John Barkett of Barkett Realty on selling the properties.

The loft homes start at $825,000. According to the listing, one unit is still on the market with a price of $845,000. 

Inside the three-bedroom residential units will be a floating staircase, private elevators, ceiling-height sliding glass doors, a kitchen with quartz, granite and marble countertop options, Bosch appliances and European custom cabinets.

 “2700 Central strategically placed on Grand Central, which is known for its delightful, eclectic mix of people with all tastes and interests. It is carefully nestled between the village of Kenwood — known for its walkable streets lined with unique housing, arts, and diversity – and the exploding Warehouse Arts District – home of a growing list of famous galleries and one of the most talked about neighborhoods in St. Petersburg,” the marketing brochure reads. 

There are three units: 

  • Unit A: 4,176 square feet 
  • Unit B: 2,121 square feet 
  • Unit C: 2,121 square feet

Residents will also have a two-car garage.

    I’m very disappointed to see yet another building so out of character with its surroundings. The character of Grand Central District is being destroyed, bit by bit. And…the pricetag of these loft homes is also out of character with this area, originally developed by Charles Hall for working people with very modest incomes.
