Proposed 20-story tower receives final approval
October 8, 2022 - This week, the St. Petersburg Development Review Commission unanimously approved the Sky St. Pete project, a 20-story apartment tower. The DRC approved the Floor Area Ratio (FAR) bonuses, a building height bonus and the site plan for DevMar Development's proposed 232-unit apartment tower that would be built at 1624, 1642, 1650 and 1662 Burlington Ave. North. Construction is scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2023 with completion in late 2025. DevMar is the same group behind the 11-story Vantage St. Pete apartment building and The Metro, a 100-unit apartment project underway in the Edge District. The project was previously approved by the city.
