Apartments St. Petersburg Florida
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.

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.”
