Downtown, St. Petersburg

Welcome to Downtown St. Petersburg

The vibrant, urban heart of a modern beachfront city.
 
Packed with high-rises, luxury condos, and exciting cultural experiences, Downtown St. Petersburg mixes urban flair with warm local charm. It’s a highly walkable community with plenty of green space and beachfront access, making it easy to go from the office to the water. 
 
Downtown St. Petersburg is the beating heart of the city. It was founded in the late 19th century by two businessmen who used a coin toss to name it. The winner named the city St. Petersburg and the loser named the Hotel Detroit. For a time, St. Petersburg marketed itself to tourists and retirees. While it still has a thriving community of both, Downtown has become a community full of hip, young professionals.
 
Luxury condos with amenities such as gyms, pools, rooftops, and concierges are the jewel in the crown of Downtown. Life here is for those who want to feel in the middle of the excitement. The beautiful thing about St. Petersburg is that even in the middle of Downtown, you’re never far from the brilliant glory of the water.
