357 on 5th Condominiums will feature laser-cut CHROME sculpture
St. Petersburg, FL (November 13, 2018) – World-renowned artist and St. Petersburg resident Ya La’Ford has unveiled the rendering for her latest inspired sculptural creation in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg, “Cosmic Whispers”.
The original piece will be made of laser cut chrome, occupying an 8 by 13 foot space on the southeast corner of the stunning new condo development, 357 on 5th. Lit by blue LED lighting to shine through the labyrinth of human connections in design, the sidewalk at the intersection of 4th Avenue S and 5th Street S will be illuminated by the artwork.
A nationally acclaimed artist, featured locally at the 2018 SHINE Mural Festival in St. Petersburg, La’Ford’s pieces depict and reflect the unique culture, landscape, and artistic spirit of downtown St. Pete.
Inspired by the elements of water and light that surround St. Petersburg and reflect on the ground like waves and reflections, La’Ford says her piece is about ‘Us’.“My new original design connects and intertwines and empowers us all. Us creating a new face of St. Pete from the bottom up. Us contributing to the creation as it is your place, my place, and most important our place,” said the artist.
357 on 5th is a condo development of new luxury residences coming to the heart of downtown St. Pete. Located next to the thriving Innovation District, the community will feature three spectacular penthouses and additional homes starting in the mid $500,000s.
Each residence will have expansive terraces and include luxury finishes such as quartz countertops, LED lighting, and optional storage. Community amenities include a sixth-floor rooftop terrace, open-air views, bike racks, private dog courtyard, and washing station, catering to the active urban lifestyle of downtown St. Petersburg.
With an announcement of three new single-story penthouse options, these single home per floor elevator access homes will have spacious floor plans, chef kitchens and private oasis amenity decks.
“357 on 5th has been a passion project for me,” said Julie Kessel, MD, Developer. “I am excited for Ya La’Ford to bring her artistry and vision to 357 on 5th and infuse energy and creativity to our space and the neighborhood.
Dr. Kessel commissioned this striking piece of art as a heartfelt gift to the residents that choose to call 357 on 5th their home and as a gift to the culturally forward community of downtown St. Pete. “Cosmic Whispers” will be an iconic presence evoking emotion and thought, reflection and celebration for many years to come,” said Dr. Kessel.
