EDGE District project wins approval
May 7, 2021 - The St. Petersburg City Council, meeting as the Community Redevelopment Agency, approved plans for a mixed-use development at 1000 1st Ave. N. in the EDGE District. Belpointe, a Greenwich, Connecticut-based developer, plans to build two 15-story buildings with a total of 254 apartments, as well as 21,463-square-feet of commercial space and a 380-space parking garage. The project is valued at $70 million, according to documents submitted to the CRA for review. The CRA found that the project is consistent with the Intown West Redevelopment Plan, a plan that is designed to capitalize on the opportunities generated by Tropicana Field.
