Tampa Bay Based DDA Development Closes on Land in Downtown St. Petersburg

Fashionable, Urban Luxury Lifestyle Becomes a Reality at The Salvador

St. Petersburg, FL, January 20, 2015 — DDA Development closed on an acre of land in the heart of Downtown St. Petersburg today. The closing is the next step in the development of The Salvador, a Green-Certified 13-story luxury building located within the City’s Arts and Innovation District. Mesh Architecture, a local architectural firm and a St. Petersburg Pier design finalist, is collaborating with DDA Development on this project. The Salvador will complement the development activity already taking place within the Arts and Innovation District, near USF St Pete, the Mahaffey and the Dali, and will transform the block into a gorgeous, convenient, hip and energy efficient place to live.


“We were attracted to the neighborhood feel of this location. Residents are within walking distance to Publix, the hospitals, USFSP, the Dalí and Mahaffey Theater, and are just a few blocks from great restaurants like Z-Grille and Red Mesa Cantina. We are excited about everything happening in downtown St. Pete and are happy to be a part of making it a better place to live,” says Bowen Arnold, of DDA Development.
