St. Petersburg, FL (October 6, 2021) ─ Orange Station at the EDGE received a final round of approvals from the St. Petersburg Development Review Commission at its meeting this afternoon. A demolition permit has been granted, and abatement on the existing building is underway.
Physical demolition will begin soon, and is expected to take approximately three to four months to complete. Groundbreaking for the new build is slated for June 2022.
“There’s so much buzz around the EDGE district generally and our project specifically ─ every step forward continues to be exciting,” said Jay Miller of Edge Central Development Partners, the partnership group developing the project.
Orange Station at the EDGE is a new mixed-use project on the site of the old St. Petersburg Police Department headquarters on Central Avenue. The development will feature:
· 50,000 SF of Class A office,
· 130,000 SF of residential (60 for-sale condos, 42 workforce apartments),
· 14,000 SF of retail street-front retail (along Central Ave and 1st Ave N),
· and a 600-space parking garage (including 400 public spaces).
Orange Station will encircle a new public plaza with outdoor cafes, and will serve as a Sunrunnerrapid transit line station. The project will also be home to a public art tribute to “The Courageous 12,” the 12 Black St. Petersburg police officers who successfully sued the city in the 1960s to gain the same rights as their white counterparts.
The project is being developed by a joint venture of local companies, including J Square Developers, DDA Development and Backstreets Capital, LLC.
The condos, called The Residences at Orange Station will feature one, two and three-bedroom units. A sales office, led by Smith & Associates, is expected to open by the end of the year with contracts available in early 2022.
