Making an International Move to St. Pete

When it comes to the state of Florida, Miami has always been the city that attracted the most international homebuyers. But, that demographic is changing. With St. Petersburg’s walkability, waterfront trails, outdoor cafes and access to culture, there has been an influx of people from all over the world purchasing homes in this growing Florida city.

Walk through downtown on any Saturday afternoon and you are sure to hear a variety of languages spoken as the diversity of the international population grows. People from other countries enjoy the pleasant Florida weather, the security and safety here and the convenience of direct international flights into Tampa International Airport.

According to Bob Glaser, President and CEO of Smith & Associates Realty, “We’ve been developing strategies, thinking about those direct flights and how to put our properties in front of these folks and build a presence. People are a lot more likely to purchase property in an area they can fly to directly, and the recent addition of direct flights such as those from Frankfort, Germany could be game changers.”

These new flights are bringing people from Canada, Latin America, and Europe, who are eager to purchase a second home for vacation or to meet investment or future retirement needs.

St. Pete is the place. Call our Realtors today to learn more about living at The Salvador in Downtown St. Petersburg. We are over 70% sold and have Realtors that are very skilled at helping the international buyer.

Downtown St. Petersburg – The Changing Face of Paradise

Downtown St. Petersburg – The Changing Face of Paradise

Florida Trend Magazine describes the city of St. Petersburg as, “The Changing Face of Paradise.” Downtown St. Petersburg is experiencing a renaissance which has been in the making for the ten years and is still evolving. The city is feeling a boom in every sector, Marine Science, Medical, Technology, Arts and Higher Education, with a focus on the quality of life and community at the heart of it all. Residents are proud of their city and want to be a part of making it an even better place for future generations to enjoy.

According to Bob Glaser, President and CEO of Smith & Associates Real Estate, “There is really no other West Coast city offering what this one has in terms of waterfront parks and cultural amenities.” The City boasts seven miles of downtown waterfront with double wide sidewalks, lush landscaping and outdoor cafes. There are over 35 miles of bike trails in St. Petersburg and an impressive $46 million Pier project, which will feature a waterfront multi-use park in the heart of Downtown St. Petersburg, once construction is completed.

Monthly art walks, a variety of world-renowned galleries and museums, including the Salvador Dali Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, bring the artistic lifestyle into every aspect of living here. The SHINE Mural Fest re-invigorated the landscape of many facades with giant murals on buildings throughout the downtown district. And the art scene continues to grow, with the Museum for Arts and Crafts Movement already breaking ground on what will be the will be the largest museum of its kind in the United States. Mahaffey Theatre hosts The Florida Orchestra as well as artists from all over the country that enjoy playing there or one of the many other venues located in Downtown St. Pete.

Companies searching for cities that offer their employees enhanced quality of life are flocking to St. Petersburg. Jabil, one of the largest electronics manufacturer in the world, has their corporate headquarters here. Major medical facilities, like All Children’s Hospital John Hopkins Medicine, Bayfront Medical Center and St. Anthony’s have all seen expansion and growth in the last few years.

With waterfront views, sunshine most every day of the year, plenty of green space, a booming job market, and a diverse population that includes people from all over the world, St. Petersburg is on the map as one of the greatest cities in Florida, or maybe in the entire United States!

Here are just a few of the accolades that St. Petersburg has received in the past two years:

#1 Fittest Metro in Florida/ #27 in the US (American College of Sports Medicine 2015)
#2 Most Beautiful City in the US (The Culture Trip 2015)

Growth Predictions in Downtown St. Pete 2016

2016 has arrived and if you are thinking of purchasing a home or condo this year, downtown St. Petersburg is the place for your real estate investment. This area is gaining global attention as a city to watch and we are not done growing. When you compare home buying prices and ease of movement within the city, St. Petersburg is winning as the warm Florida city to buy in. According to Trulia, the median home sale price increased 3.2% in the period from October 2015-January 2016, with the average listing price in the downtown St. Pete zip code at $595,284. Predictions for the next year, forecast an increase in the median home sales and in the cost per square foot for the popular downtown neighborhoods.

According to the Tampa Tribune, 1,100 new apartment units will be finished downtown this year with an expected influx of more people living in the city center this year with median incomes of $53,000. The New York Times listed the “Sunshine City”, as St. Petersburg is often referred to, in it’s list of Top 50 Destinations to See and The Independent reported that “Miami has a rival for the finer things”.

The Salvador is a brand new condominium tower that will be rising in the south end of downtown known as the Innovation District. The Innovation District is a cluster of higher education, marine science, healthcare, business incubation, and media institutions.

Here is how the City of St. Petersburg describes the Innovation District in their economic development report:

Within the Innovation District, St. Petersburg’s marine and environmental sciences institutions flourish in downtown’s Bayboro Harbor area, ideally located on Tampa Bay near the Gulf of Mexico. Anchoring the district is the St. Petersburg Ocean Team – the premier consortium of marine science, oceanographic, and environmental research agencies and institutions in the Southeastern United States.

The Ocean Team includes public and private non-profit agencies, such as NOAA, University of South Florida (USF) College of Marine Science, SRI – St. Petersburg, United States Geological Survey (USGS), and the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) that are devoted to marine and environmental research in Florida, the Caribbean, and beyond.

Ocean Team agencies employ more than 1,600 people whose spending generates an additional 1,800 employees and leads to a total impact of $251 million in gross county product. As the district evolves, firms in related industries have the opportunity to capitalize on technology transfer and research commercialization by locating near the district with access to a growing, specialized workforce.

Other institutions and owners within the district includes:
All Children’s Hospital/Johns Hopkins Medicine, Bayfront Hospital, University of South Florida St. Pete, University of South Florida – College of Marine Science, The Poynter Institute for Media Studies, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, US Geological Survey, US Coast Guard, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Albert Whitted Airport, and SRI International 22

The possibilities for the Innovation District include a rich tapestry of urban form that can enhance the profile of each institution, support business development and recruitment, provide energy for neighborhood reinvestment and jobs at all salary and education levels. The Innovation District is a central asset to the future of the St. Petersburg community.

More shops, boutiques, cafes, green spaces, and a renovated pier are all in the city plans with the growth plan to make pockets of towns and neighborhoods throughout downtown easily walkable, connected, and intermodal. And with the cost of living in the Tampa Bay area last year 8 percent lower than the national average, the city make for an ideal real estate investment, retirement option or relocation.

Kitchen Is the Heart of Condo Living #dtsp

The Salvador’s Kitchen is the Heart of Condo Lining in Downtown St. Petersburg

The heart of a home is almost always described as the kitchen. It is not necessarily because we are all expert culinary chefs that a kitchen is so meaningful to a home, but instead because a good meal brings people together and helps us feel replenished at the end of the day. A good meal whether shared or solo is a chance to nurture your body with nutrients, flavorful tastes and creative new sensations for your palate. It doesn’t have to be time-consuming or fancy to be enjoyable. You may just cut a few slices of cheese and uncork a bottle of wine to feel the pleasure and delight of being with your friends and family.

A good kitchen brings intimacy and pleasure to your cooking experience. At The Salvador, we designed our condos for the heart of the home, with the design on the kitchen being a central focus in the harmony of the entire condominium.

Our kitchens have countertop space for serving, cutting, and chatting with your guests as they sit around the countertop island. This open design ensures that the kitchen is a part of the vitality of the entire condo living space. Along with an open design, our state of the art appliances, makes cooking enjoyable and precise with gas ranges and a variety of other features for the home chef.

Kitchen features include:

  • Bosch 36” wide stainless steel counter-depth refrigerator with French door bottom-freezer with filtered internal water dispenser and LED lighting
  • Bosch stainless steel 5-burner gas range with built-in warming drawer
  • Bosch stainless steel re-circulating exhaust hood with four-speed touch controls, LCD display and halogen lighting
  • stainless steel pushbutton drawer microwave./li>
  • Bosch stainless steel ultra-quiet dishwasher with built-in water softener
  • GE stainless steel wine cooler with 30 bottle capacity
  • Brizo Solna single handle kitchen faucet with pull-down spray wand.
  • 3cm quartz solid surface countertops with under mount stainless steel sinks
  • Custom contemporary cabinets with plywood boxes, wood veneer doors and drawers and soft-close European hardware
  • Upgraded lighting, including LED fixtures in select places

We also have a gas grill on the amenity deck available for all residents. Grill your steaks and veggies on our grill then eat under the stars on the deck or bring your delicious meal back to your condo. With the Saturday Morning Market, Locale Market and Publix being walking distance from The Salvador, getting fresh, local and organic ingredients will be easy.
When you live at The Salvador, you will enjoy the culinary experience of a condo that is designed with elegance, functionality and enjoyment in mind.

Downtown St. Pete Is A Dog-Friendly Town #condosforsaledowntownStPete

dogs5Downtown St. Pete is a dog-friendly kind of town. Your dog will have plenty of places to explore with miles of waterfront trails to walk and grassy parks to play in. No matter what time you are out and about, there always seems to be someone walking their dog.
Dog owners in this town are courteous and encouraged to pick up after their dogs. You will often see the owners seeming just as happy to be hanging out in the dog parks as the dogs are! And if your dog like to swim, North Shore Park is going to be his/ her new favorite hangout. This dog-friendly park has a beach where they can run in the sand and frolick in the surf.

Retail Coming to The Salvador in Downtown St. Pete #condosforsaledowntownStPete

Retail Coming to The Salvador in Downtown St. Pete

#condosforsaledowntownStPete

There is no question that 2015 is booming for downtown St. Pete. New businesses are relocating to the area, the University of South Florida St. Pete is expanding, and more residences are being built to accommodate the needs of a growing city. With the urban growth comes new openings every day of restaurant establishments, services like yoga studios and stores to give us retail therapy.

We are proud to be a part of this growth! Along with our 74 residences available, the base of our condo tower will be the home to over 3,400 Square Feet of potential retail space. While we haven’t announced the tenants yet, you can be sure they are going to be in-line with the trends of the city with the hottest and best places opening on a daily basis.

If its arts and culture you crave, the Salvador is the place to move into.

 

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.

St. Pete’s Waterfront- Living in Florida #condosforsaledowntownStPete

Living in Florida? Why not St. Pete’s Waterfront?

For thousands of years, people from all over the world have written about the beauty and calm experience of being near a water’s edge. We take beach vacations and go back to work feeling changed from the relaxation experienced being near the water.

Well, in downtown St. Pete, we urban dwellers get to experience the beauty of the waterfront on a daily basis. Our condominium tower, The Salvador, has condo balconies that offer a view of these waterfront vistas, and the area has a seven-mile stretch of waterfront trails to walk and bike.

Because this waterfront area is such an asset to the city, the city of St. Petersburg is envisioning expanding the waterfront area and the ways we can experience it. According to the local paper, “The plan envisions a mixed-use promenade for Bayshore Drive that could accommodate vehicles, bikes and pedestrians and could be closed easily for special events.”

While there are many sections of town that will benefit from the plan, we are going to see some wonderful enhancements to our area near the Innovation District.

They include:
-Retail and concession nodes along the water at Demens Landing
-Expanded dockage and linked pedestrian trails near the Salvador Dali Museum and the Mahaffey Theater
-Dock installations where kayaks and Stand Up Paddleboards can launch
-More benches and swings
-Possibility of a cross-bay ferry terminal

And also in our neighborhood, the Innovation District plenty of room allowed for USF St. Pete to keep expanding

The growth of this area is going to be tremendous making St. Pete a destination for people all over the world who seek the beauty of the water and the vitality of a bustling metropolitan city.

The Salvador Commissions Artist Ron Francis

“I liked the design aspect of The Salvador from the beginning.
By using local artists and having a green-certified design, The Salvador has soul.
My art is an extension of the soul of the building.” ~ Ron Francis, Artist ~

 

From The Salvador’s inception, there has been a focus on art inspired design and living. While function and luxury are key priorities in the design, DDA Development felt these two things could merge with artistic expression in a way that elevates the way The Salvador residents live. The Salvador Condos For Sale in Downtown St. Petersburg, is located in the Arts and Innovation District, which is a short walking distance from the Salvador Dali Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Chihuly Collection, and situated in a community that prides itself on art. Ron Francis

DDA is devoted to finding local artists and designers to help craft the new condos for sale in downtown St. Petersburg. So it was a natural choice for them to commission local artist, Ron Francis, to do the two-story lobby’s plasterwork and some of the art pieces that will reside there.

Francis is a skilled artisan in the ancient plastering technique, grasello. He learned his craft 25 years ago during a European apprenticeship and he continues to hone his skills here in Tampa Bay. In his private label veneer plasters, Francis uses only Imported Italian lime-based plaster. The Venetian Plaster he uses is all-natural, with no pigments or fillers. Francis combines the Venetian Plaster with other “green” materials to produce a high-polished, high-gloss, multi-layer look, which is completely modern and unique. Even though plastering is one of the most ancient building techniques, Francis artistically gives his Venetian Plaster a modern twist that makes it look gorgeous and fresh in any atmosphere.

The Salvador Construction Video & Photos

The Salvador – Construction Video & Photos

Here we go! Our contractor is on site and construction on our 13-story boutique condo tower, The Salvador has begun. What a change a couple of months make! The run-down buildings that were on this conveniently located lot in Downtown St. Petersburg were demolished to make way for our Green-Certified Condominium Tower. The Salvador will become the residential cornerstone of Downtown St. Pete’s “Arts & Innovation District”. This neighborhood is happening, with growth as vibrant start-ups move into the area and education institutes like USF St. Petersburg expand. More people are seeking out urban centers to call home because of their walkability and easy access to culture, dining and waterfront views.

The contractor is beginning to scrape and grade the site, leaving trees along the property line that will be a part of The Salvador’s earth-friendly landscaping. Then, the foundation survey will begin, followed by stone column installation. This construction is expected to take three weeks. Once the foundations are in, we will install the storm-water vault.

We know you are eager to move in so we will continue to post updates on our progress. Keep checking back!
