Several commercial office buildings and retail stores are slated to be demolished in St. Petersburg as townhome complexes will be popping out of the ground. 

These are the latest planned townhome projects in the works, according to recent stormwater permits filed by engineers and developers (all the information was obtained through applications, site plans and permits filed within the Southwest Florida Water Management District): 

 

New David Weekley townhome community

The project called the Union District Townhomes involves the redevelopment of the site at 432 31st Street N. 

The site is currently home to Florida Print Solutions, according to the parcel number. The building and parking lot would be demolished. 

Homebuilder David Weekley Homes will develop the 65 townhome units.  

The multiple townhome buildings will range from three to seven units. 

David Weekley Homes is working with Vickstorm Engineering Services on the project. 

 

Townhomes in Kenwood

The development, dubbed Towns at Kenwood, is a proposed townhome development that would be built at 2129 1st Ave. N.

The site is the home of the 10,300-square-foot Bringe Music Center, which operates as an instrument repair shop and music school. Bringe Music was founded in 1956 by its original owner, German violin maker Walter Bringe. A representative at the Bringe Music Center stated the owners are retiring and there will be a liquidation sale. 

The new townhome project at the o.583-acre site will consist of 14 single-family attached units. 

David Weekley Homes will also be developing these townhomes. Tampa-based LevelUp Consulting LLC is serving as the consultant.  

 

Woodland Townhomes 

St. Petersburg-based TRB Development LLC, which is controlled by local entrepreneurs Trevor Burgess and Jon Carlon, is planning to build a new townhome community at 2203 and 2211 16th St. N. 

The project site is 0.36 acres and currently has office buildings. The development, called the Woodland Townhomes, involves the construction of seven townhomes. 

TRB Development is working with Clearwater-based Deuel and Associates on the development. 

 

Skyway Marina townhomes

General Contractor Howard Civil Engineering LLC filed stormwater plans for a proposed 14-unit residential development in the district. 

The development, called Oyster Cay, would be built on a 2.76-acre lot that’s mostly vacant with the exception of a small office building. 

The property is on the north side of 38th Avenue South, west of 34th Street at 3753 38th Ave. South. 

The Oyster Cay development would be adjacent to the Alta Mar at Broadwater Apartments, and is across from the Addison Skyway Marina complex. 

An architect for the project has not been determined. 

The current owner of the land is St. Petersburg-based MRPC LLC.

    I guess the townhouses are not affordable for workers or the average person.

    The problem with the term “affordable” is that it doesn’t consider absolutes. Something that is affordable for one average income person may not be affordable to the next. St. Pete has attracted a younger, technically savvy resident and their salaries allow them to afford the housing in this area. I’m an advocate for adults, especially older adults, to retool themselves to be part of this homeownership movement. Yes, prices are higher now, but the market has started to self correct. Patience and preparedness will eventually pay off.
