Top 5 Places To Workout

Working out in the Burg is easy. We are lucky enough to enjoy the sunshine most days of the year and have extremely mild Winters. While there is still a significant amount of people here who set the new year’s resolution to get healthy and workout, St. Petersburg makes it easy for healthy living to become a lifestyle.

Here are some of our favorite ways to get fit

Walk outside

With miles of waterfront trails that are safe and connected, a walk along the waterfront is our favorite way to end the day. The views are spectacular, the people and furry friends are usually friendly, and there is always something beautiful to appreciate.

Take a Yoga Class

The Sundial in Downtown St. Petersburg offers a free yoga class every Sunday in their outside space and is a fun way to get more limber while being able to enjoy the downtown shops or cafes afterward. The Dali Museum also has their yoga class every Sunday that includes admission to the museum. And if you prefer to get your stretch on indoors, the Body Electric is a local favorite. Known for their welcoming and friendly vibe that accepts all of us, even the ones that have nothing in common with Gumby, this place is always tops on the Best of the Bay lists.

Lap Swimming

Swimming laps is always a top way to get circulation into your body while still being kind to your joints. The Salvador will have a solar heated pool on an elevated deck giving you an exercise space with a sky view for your backstroke.

Healthy living feels good! Wishing you a healthy 2017!

Happy Holidays

The holidays are here and our new condo tower offering affordable luxury living in the heart of downtown St. Pete is almost complete. We can not wait to have our residents move in- 2017 here we come!

We are proud to be able to offer you a place to live that is Green-certified with a focus on sustainability while also making sure that our residents have all the luxury amenities they expect.

And we have made it easy to keep your favorite furry friend clean and happy with a state-of-the-art gated dog walk area with cleaning station. Secure two-level parking garage, professional property manager and 8-hour per day (5 days per week) concierge staff means resident security is a priority at the Salvador. You’ll also enjoy your condo home amenities like large window vistas and Bosch stainless steel appliances including a gas range.

Art Winner Announced for Student Digital Sculpture Contest

St. Petersburg, FL. — The Salvador, a new condominium tower under construction in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg’s Arts and Innovation District, announced the winner of the 3-D Print Digital Art Sculpture Contest in partnership with the University of South Florida (USF) and Tampa Bay Business for Culture and Arts (TBBCA). Tina Piracci, currently a Junior at USF pursuing her Bachelors of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in sculpture, won the top prize with her bronze sculpture, “Don’t Wake Gala,” which represents the marriage of a dreamlike narrative with science and research. Ms. Piracci’s sculpture will be on display in the lobby of The Salvador later this year.

Winning Sculpture created by Tina Piracci with 3-D printer, Brass

“Dreams have always been a clairvoyant phenomenon for me,” said Ms. Piracci, who also won a $200 cash prize. “They have taught me that time is a variable, and that fate is real. Where the mind goes when we sleep is a place that we cannot access while conscious. There, I have seen the faces of unborn toddlers, and even deaths of loved ones, including my brother. Dreams give me comfort that our lives do have direction.”

In February, The Salvador partnered with USF and TBBCA to call for student artists to design and create sculptures using a 3-D printer. Interested students were asked to design an innovative sculpture inspired by the Surrealist art of Salvador Dali that could be transformed into a 3-D printed sculpture. For many of the students, this was the first time they worked with the 3-D printer at USF and had to consider how their art would transfer to the materials used in the 3-D printer. The runner-ups for the contest were Jessica Menchon, with her sculpture in bronze and Harish Kumar Chittam, with his sculpture in brass. Each runner-up will receive a $100 cash prize.

“TBBCA is pleased that The Salvador and its developers are leading the way and integrating arts education and technology in their project,” said Susana Weymouth, Executive Director at TBBCA.

Howard Kaplan, Visualization Specialist in the Advanced Visualization Center for Research at USF, led the student artists with 3-D printing workshops and completing the sculpture printings. According to Kaplan, “This contest gave our students a unique real-world opportunity to take their drawings into the digital framework of the 3-D printing and see the results. There were many things they had to consider from design to printing in order to achieve good results.”

The award curators were Hank Hine; Curator and Executive Director of the Dali Museum, Yann
Weymouth; Architect of the Dali Museum, and Sarah Howard; Curator of Public Art and Social Practice.

“Downtown St. Pete is a community that is merging innovation and arts in a very unique way. This contest allowed local student artists access to the 3-D printing innovation that we are sure to see more of in the upcoming years,” said the architect of the Salvador Dali Museum, Yann Weymouth.

Bowen Arnold, DDA, ”Being a part of the arts community in downtown St. Pete and right next door to the USF St. Petersburg campus, The Salvador is a part of and supports the innovation and arts community that defines this area. The building itself is inspired by the art of Salvador Dali and features a modern, artful design in the building and the individual units. DDA Development is committed to hiring local architects, contractors and artists. We were so pleased our contest could inspire local students in a fresh, artistic way.”

Below are the winning artists’ initial design plans for printing. We are impressed with the creativity and innovation shown by our student artists.

Artful Condos in Downtown St. Pete

Research shows that the beauty of art is good for our health. Just spending the day walking through an art museum can have a positive effect on your nervous system, your mental outlook and even on the way the heart pumps blood through your veins.

When DDA Development sought to revitalize a block in the “Innovation and Arts” District of downtown St. Petersburg with a new and unique condo residence, they looked to the local community for inspiration. Downtown St. Petersburg has long prided itself as a community centered around the arts.

The monthly art walks that unite the downtown studios and galleries for the purpose of sharing their art with the community bring people from all walks of life together to enjoy a night of artistic expression. Besides the monthly art walks, residents or visitors can become an artist with a variety of art classes in almost every genre from clay sculpting to glass blowing occurring every day of the week. And then there is what some might consider the anchor of our arts community, “The Dalí Museum.” Just seeing the exterior design of this building is enough to inspire an appreciation for the imagination and what is possible in artistic and architectural design.

To ensure the soul of this arts community is in every aspect of the building design, DDA Development partnered with local architecture firm, MESH Architecture. From the shape of the pool to the lobby art, there is a focus on creative expression with some of the design being an homage to the artist Salvador Dalí. The building reflects the merging of art and function.

“We wanted people to feel the power of art each and every time they stepped into The Salvador. The lobby needed to be modern and artistic,” says John Schilling of DDA Development. To do this, DDA commissioned local artist Ron Francis to do the lobby in polished plaster. Francis is a skilled tradesman in the art of plaster and specifically a technique called grasello that gives the wall a highly polished, high sheen look. His plaster is “private labeled” made out of Carrera marble flour, which he layers on the wall in a highly labor-intensive way that is an artisan art form centuries old. The multi-layered wall is unique and makes a modern statement that is almost like having a seamless marble wall.

The uniqueness of The Salvador design is everywhere and by partnering with the “locals”, the building reflects what is already creative and genuine about the community of downtown St. Pete. By bringing the arts into the design, DDA Development has had the subtle effect of creating an atmosphere that feels nourishing and healthy to the residents and their guest.

We Support the “Local” in Downtown St. Pete

While downtown St. Petersburg is experiencing an unprecedented bout of growth, the City has still maintained its identity as a place that is committed to the arts and all things local. With a unique and funky feel, you won’t find anywhere else the locals affectionately refer to the city as the ‘Burg. People who live here enjoy walking to the Saturday farmer’s market, eating at the outdoor cafes and buying from local shops and boutiques.

When envisioning The Salvador, luxury condos for sale in downtown St. Petersburg, DDA Development wanted to build a structure that was a part of the heart and soul of this unique community. To do so meant a commitment to local talent in everything from the building design to the artwork within the building. It also meant building a structure that offered long-term sustainability.

DDA Development partnered with St. Petersburg-based architecture firm Mesh Architecture to create the first Green-certified condo project in the downtown St. Petersburg area. The architects at Mesh made sure that sustainability was linked into the unique art-influenced design of The Salvador. The eco-friendly building will have Energy Star roofing, high-efficiency air conditioners and water heaters, native Florida landscaping with low-flow irrigation system and a resident recycling program. According to Bowen Arnold at DDA Development, “We wanted The Salvador to be a positive reflection of all that this town has to offer. The green design only ensures that we are a part of the community in a meaningful way.”

For the two-story lobby, local artist Ron Francis was hired to incorporate his unique “venetian” plasterwork, which will give the entryway a high gloss finishing effect that is artful, modern and dynamic. Francis’ artwork will also appear throughout the lobby. All of this is a part of DDA’s artistic vision that unites elements of the artful and hip community into their condos for sale in downtown St. Petersburg. “I was honored when I got hired to do the lobby finishes at The Salvador. A developer will often bring artists from outside of the city to do work, but here is a developer that is hiring from within the community. We have so much great talent right here,” says Francis.

All of The Salvador’s team members are local (Developer, Architect, Contractor, Sales and Marketing Firms) The Salvador’s concepts, creation, and construction all have roots in the Tampa Bay region, giving it an authentic neighborhood feel in the “Arts and Innovation District” that is its home.
