New renderings released of The Nolen give a first-ever inside look at the 23-story condo development planned for downtown St. Pete.
The $50 million hi-rise development at 146 4th Ave. Northeast is near North Straub Park and The Vinoy Hotel. It will be on the same site where JMC Communities previously planned The Perry, a 12-story, 20-unit condominium.
The Nolen, named after urban planner John Nolen, who has a significant role in St. Pete’s waterfront parks, will offer 31 units, a three-story parking structure, and 1,260 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Each residence is designed to be completely private and separate with no shared neighboring walls, according to a press release.
The green-certified complex will offer a dedicated concierge, fitness center, wellness room, a social room called “The Saloon” with a large catering kitchen, and terrace with a heated pool and spa, outdoor kitchen, fire tables and cabanas.
Bowen Arnold and John Schilling at DDA Development are the developers. The project team also includes Backstreets Capital, Place Architecture and Kippen Communications, all based in St. Pete, as well as Smith & Associates Real Estate.
Floors five through 15 will have two residential units per floor, and floors 16 through 23 will have one residential unit per floor. Residential parking will offer electric car-charging stations, private garages and storage.
Two months ago, the St. Pete Development Review Commission approved the site plan to construct the 23-story condominium tower.
Construction is expected to start in the first quarter of 2022. Once the group breaks ground, the development is expected to be completed within 18-20 months, subject to sales and permitting.
Appointments with listing brokerage firm Smith and Associates Real Estate are expected to begin in November.
The three-bedroom residences will start at $1.2 million.
As previously reported, The Nolen will be built where there are two existing structures, one of which is used as a bed and breakfast dubbed the Watergarden Inn at the Bay.
That structure, which was originally built in 1912 as a residence, will be moved to a vacant lot at the northeast corner of 8th Avenue and Dartmoor Street North.
The building on the western side of the subject property operates as a hotel, which was also built as a residence. This second structure will be demolished.
