Providing the comforts of a home clubbed with an array of extras, apartments have always been the popular choice among the other options. However, there are varied types of apartments available and individuals tend to get confused between them.
The most popular types of apartment are one bedroom apartment and studio apartment However, the terms are often used interchangeably though there is a critical difference between the two. It is vital for one to familiarize oneself with the two terms so that the right apartment in accordance to the needs is selected.
A one-bedroom apartment most commonly is referred to a single apartment. A basic one bedroom apartment has a bedroom, a kitchen, a living room and a bathroom. Some of the one bedroom apartments are also known to feature a fireplace, a balcony, a yard and two level storage spaces, etc. However, these features vary from apartment to apartment and are extra features.

The distinct difference between one bedroom apartment and a studio apartment is that the one bedroom apartment features separate spaces for the bedroom area, living room area and the kitchen area. However, a studio apartment has a single large multipurpose room which serves as the bedroom, the kitchen and as well as the living room. The only similarity between both of them is that they feature a separate space for the bathroom. Besides this, a one bedroom apartment is different from a studio apartment in every aspect.
As a one room apartment tends to be large in size than a studio apartment, it wears a higher price tag or rent rate in comparison to the studio apartment. In addition, the utility bills of a studio apartment are much lower than a one bedroom apartment.
Before you make a decision, try to analyze the advantages and disadvantages of each type of apartment. A one-bedroom apartment costs more but offers more space and benefits. However, these benefits don’t apply to everyone so certain renters might benefit more from a studio. If you live in a studio but feel that you could use more space, then an upgrade might be the solution. Also, if you’re living in a one-bedroom apartment and feel that you wouldn’t mind living in a studio, this can help you save significant money.
A one-bedroom apartment rental should include a bedroom with a closet and a door that closes (along with a window), a separate living room area, at least one separate bathroom many luxury one-bedroom apartment rentals styles include an additional half-bath, usually off the living room or front hall or foyer), and, often, a separate kitchen. However, as is the case in many studio and junior one bedroom apartments, the kitchen can be open and running along one wall of the living area, particularly when the apartment is on the smaller size.
The advantages in terms of the one bedroom apartment layout versus a studio apartment floor plan are clear: even with the same square footage, the one-bedroom apartment automatically offers you more privacy, and more clearly delineates the space, making decorating a one-bedroom apartment, even one that, at first glance, appears tiny, a far simpler task. Also, if you work from home, either as a full-time job or even just occasionally at night and on weekends, it helps psychologically to have your office space–your computer and printer and files and supplies–in a separate environment from your sleeping space. Most couples and singles prefer a 1 bedroom over a studio, especially for entertaining guests, who won’t have to sit on your bed in order to hang out. If you cook a lot at home, it’s also nice to have the kitchen area separate from your sleeping area, so that food odors don’t settle on your duvet cover. There is also less “running into each other” when maneuvering through a one bedroom as opposed to a smaller apartment, and couples find they can get a little more privacy if one of them can be, say, reading in the bedroom while the other watches TV in the living room.

Roommates sharing a one bedroom apartment is a fairly common occurrence situation, with one person getting the bedroom; the other the living area. Many couples with older children and, especially, single or divorced parents, also make full use of both rooms for sleeping, often with the adult(s) getting the “official” bedroom, and the kids making do with a futon, a pull-out couch, or a pull-down Murphy bed. In some apartments a temporary wall are often used, that divide the living area into a small living space, and a small bedroom. These room dividers are usually free standing. Most apartment communities have strict rules on modifying a one bedroom apartment but a free standing dividers works well.
The Related Group is continuing to branch out, both from its home base of Miami and from the condominium towers that made the company synonymous with urban living.
As part of a push to diversify both geographically and by product type, Related is focusing increasingly on providing upscale apartments in select urban markets, including Tampa and St. Petersburg.
The latest evidence of the pivot can be found in Icon Central Apartments, a 15-story multifamily rental project that is under construction in downtown St. Petersburg.
There, Related is building 368 units in the city’s Arts District to appeal to a burgeoning “creative class” of young professionals who want to live and work downtown and are “renters by choice.”
But Related founder and CEO Jorge Perez says the company wants to develop another, more “iconic” building in St. Petersburg — one that would likely rival or surpass the 41-story One St. Petersburg under construction by Kolter Group and a planned high-rise by New York-based Red Apple Group.
“St. Petersburg needs a truly iconic building, and that is what we do,” says Perez, who founded Related 39 years ago and has led it to become one of the nation’s largest Hispanic companies. “We would like to build something iconic here. St. Petersburg has all of the things that make life worth living. To us, there’s no question that the future of St. Petersburg will be very bright.”
The same could be said of Related, which has a development pipeline nationwide of $15 billion in projects.
Icon Central Apartments , which is slated to be completed at 855 Central Ave. in mid-2019, is one of a handful of projects Related is in varying stages of development on in the Tampa area. Icon Harbour Island Apartments
In all, the company plans to construct more than 2,400 new units spread across varying price points.
In addition to Icon Central Apartments, the company has completed Icon Harbour Island, a 22-story luxury rental tower in downtown Tampa Icon Harbour Island Apartments; is constructing a 400-unit project on the site of the former Tampa Tribune called Manor Riverwalk; and is building a 396-unit apartment project in the Westshore Marina District known as Town Westshore.
Another Related division that focuses on more affordable housing is planning to rehabilitate roughly 700 units and add 900 market-rate dwellings in the 150-acre West River, a project in conjunction with the Tampa Housing Authority.
Perez says the mix is important for both Related and the communities in which it builds.
“We are urbanists; we believe in cities,” Perez told a group of about 50 people who gathered for the Icon Central groundbreaking. “We want to add to the lifestyle of cities.”
After shovels flipped dirt for photographers, Perez reflected further on the company’s place in the larger tapestry of society.
“We’re very concerned with affordability,” he says. “It’s why we build all sizes of units with all types of amenities. It’s not fair that a lawyer can afford a unit downtown but a restaurant worker has to live an hour away.
“For us, as a company, our goal is to diversify so that we’re not so dependent on any one geographic area, or any one product type,” Perez adds. “That’s why we’re branching out into places like St. Petersburg and Texas and Las Vegas and Phoenix and Denver. We hope to become a truly great national company that can meet both short- and long-term demand.”
What remains unchanged, however, is Perez’s belief in the quality of Related’s developments.
“All developers are cowboys to an extent, they think their stuff is the best. But our product is truly the best; it’s what we’re chiefly concerned about. We build better buildings, with better architecture and in better locations. It’s what has set us apart all these years.”
Patterson’s rental development division, which is also building in Atlanta and Orlando, is clearly seen as a major driver of growth going forward, however — growth that will undoubtedly focus on places like St. Petersburg.
“This city has great bones,” Patterson told the crowd at the groundbreaking event. “We are not going to disappoint you.”
TAMPA, Fla. — Construction crews are breaking ground on the second largest new development in Tampa.
Dubbed the Westshore Marina District, the series of high rise condo towers, Town apartment buildings, townhomes will include retail shops and waterfront restaurants.
“Instead of looking at what is traditionally industrial, you’re going to have some glass towers rising over the water,” said Beck Daniel, director of development for BTI Partners.
The company bought up land on the Tampa side of the Gandy Bridge after a previous project failed during the recession.
“People haven’t seen anything for a while,” said Daniel pointing to the construction behind him. “The good news is it’s all happening at once, right now.”
At the center of it all will be Marina Pointe, a series of three 16-story condominium towers overlooking Tampa Bay.
“You can see St. Pete and you can see downtown Tampa,” said Daniel of the view overlooking Tampa Bay.
Crews will break ground on the first tower this fall, with the sales gallery set to open next month.
Already visible to drivers on Gandy is the wood framework for the new Town Westshore Marina Apartments. It’s one of the two apartment complexes which will eventually surround a massive parking garage hiding it from view.
There will also be two separate townhouse projects, with plans for a grand total of as many as 1,500 new housing units throughout the entire development.
Daniel says the No. 1 selling point for all of these new homes will be views and access to the water, complete with a massive new marina.
“It has 13 acres of deep water basin with floating docks, marinas, gas, fish stations, kayak launches and opportunities for dining and drinks when you come back.”
Developers say with waterfront restaurants and shopping, the Westshore Marina District won’t just be for those with enough money to live in the community.
There will also be a series of public parks and bike paths connecting to the Friendship Trail and even new water taxi service connecting the Westshore area to St. Pete and downtown Tampa.
Along with the new Selmon Connector, which is expected to reduce traffic on Gandy, the entire area will undergo a massive transformation over the next two years, with both projects scheduled for completion in 2020.
ST. PETERSBURG — Miami’s Related Group, one of Florida’s top developers, would like to build an “iconic’’ condo tower in downtown St. Petersburg, the company’s chairman and CEO says.
Though the idea is very preliminary, it shows the continuing interest in what has become one of the trendiest downtowns in the state. And while Related already is a major player in Tampa Bay, it would be the company’s first condo project in the area.
“St. Petersburg has grown beautifully,’’ Related founder Jorge Pérez said Wednesday at the ground-breaking of a downtown apartment project. “It has the best of both worlds, an urban livability with museums and shops and all kinds of different restaurants, and it offers a mix of water views that is difficult to find.
“It’s got the perfect location and we want to do the most iconic building, world-class.’’
Before the ceremony, Pérez and several Related executives walked along Beach Drive, lined with condo towers, and stopped by the sales office of ONE St. Petersburg, a 41-story, 253-unit tower under construction a few blocks from the water.
When asked if he thought any of the downtown towers were “iconic,’’ Pérez had a quick answer: “Not a one.’’
“We are very big on the arts,’’ added Pérez, the main benefactor of the Pérez Art Museum Miami. “If we do a luxury condo we will spend millions and millions of dollars on artwork.’’
Related would want a site close to downtown St. Petersburg’s waterfront, but Pérez acknowledged it likely would involve demolishing an existing structure because of the lack of vacant land. If the condo project came to fruition, Pérez said, it would be marketed to international as well as domestic buyers.
Since it started in 1979, Related has built, renovated and managed more than 90,000 condominium and rental units, including four Trump Towers. In recent years, the company has expanded beyond South Florida, and has focused increased attention on fast-growing areas like Tampa Bay.
Under a banner slung between a front loader and an excavator, Pérez, St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman and several others wielded gold-plated shovels to officially break ground on the ICON Central apartments in the 800 block of Central Avenue.
Work has already begun on the 368-unit project, which will include a seven-story parking garage, a 15-story apartment tower and 35,000 square feet of space for shops and a restaurant. Part of the retail space will be in a section of the century-old, long vacant Union Trust bank building that Related is preserving.
“They’ve done a very good job of marrying this new structure into the historic structure (of the bank),’’ Kriseman said. He touted ICON Central, which covers an entire city block, as a major step in creating “continuity’’ along Central Avenue.
“There were two blocks when I became mayor that I said I wanted to reactivate,’’ said Kriseman, who took office in 2014 and is now starting his second term. “This is one of them. It’s such a huge part of this area that has come back to life.
“The other “missing tooth in the smile,’’ as Kriseman put it, is the 400 block of Central, where two hulking, abandoned buildings were finally torn down in 2016 to make way for a planned mixed-used tower.
From St. Petersburg, Pérez and the rest of the Related team headed to Tampa to check on the company’s apartment projects there — the 400-unit Town Westshore under construction in the Westhshore Marina District; Manor Riverwalk underway on the former Tampa Tribune site; and ICON Harbour Island, just finished and about 40 percent leased.
The ICONs in Tampa and St. Petersburg are in Related’s new line of high-end apartments, with prices to match — top rents are around $4,000.

Much of St. Pete’s high-rise construction boom has occurred in close proximity to the city’s downtown waterfront, but the new tower — named Icon Central — further validates the appeal of St. Pete’s Central Avenue corridor to developers and investors.
The innovative, modern architecture is changing the face of the burgeoning city and revitalized downtown area. The Arlington St. Pete, ICON’s first addition to the evolution, has concluded sales and construction. The blending of full concrete block construction with wood accents, enormous windows, contemporary accents and bold colors make the buildings along Arlington Ave N unmistakable, and the rooftop living spaces immediately catch the attention of all passersby.
Two new communities are available nearby including The District on 9th and Uptown Kenwood, which are currently selling from the $300s. The communities offer multiple townhome floorplans ranging from 1,400 to 2,600 square feet with myriad customizable finishes and upgrades to select from. Residents of both will have easy access to many cultural pursuits including dog-friendly cafes, a variety of museums and art galleries, numerous local breweries and world class beaches.
The District on 9th is located just two blocks from Central Avenue near the new urban Publix and will include private rooftop terraces, live-work units, and the ultimate in pedestrian connectivity to the surrounding area. Construction on the initial phase has begun and is scheduled for completion around summer 2018.
Uptown Kenwood is situated in the Historic Kenwood area, framed by quaint tree-lined brick streets, art galleries and historic bungalows. Uptown Kenwood will feature a community pool, dog park and a gathering area with fire pit while the townhomes will offer private balconies and lush green surroundings to relax and entertain. Uptown Kenwood is preparing to break ground on construction for the initial phase, scheduled for completion around summer 2018.
“We specialize in developing contemporary townhomes in desirable downtown neighborhoods across the Southeastern US with a strong emphasis on great design. Our goal is to offer a live-work-play environment for our residents to take advantage of an urbanist lifestyle only in the hottest up-and-coming neighborhoods” said ICON Residential Principal Mike Bednarski, a managing partner with the developer. He added, “We are getting a lot of buyers that have been craving a luxury housing product at a reasonable price centrally located in the St. Petersburg area.”
