New Construction St. Petersburg, FL
St. Petersburg was once known as a quiet city for retirees to spend out their last years, a city called “God’s Waiting Room”. A few decades ago, St. Pete was a city that didn’t have many bars, restaurants, and downtown was a complete ghost town, I mean empty! Just to prove the point, I was a law school student living in St. Pete who would travel to Ybor City for entertainment. These days that would be hard to believe.
St. Petersburg always had great character, friendly people, positive vibes, arts, amazing beaches, and sunshine; however the city has undergone a huge transformation over time. Today, St. Petersburg is thriving with diversity, restaurants, activities, arts, and a younger crowd. The energy that explodes with vibrance in this coastal city has caught on and the secret is out.
Within the last 3 years there has been an influx of individuals and families moving to the area and St. Petersburg is responding by building new construction to service this new population. In 2022, the City of St. Pete issued a record number of permits which brought in more than $1 billion in S. Petersburg new construction value and the city’s building official believes it could happen again.
St. Petersburg’s demand for housing is not going to slow down and prices are not getting any cheaper. Unfortunately, there isn’t much space or land to build on, so you won’t be seeing many single-family home developments newly constructed in St. Pete. However, if you are looking for a new construction in St. Petersburg FL the townhomes are bountiful. Here are some to pay attention to.

Driftwood: New Construction Townhomes in St. Petersburg
Driftwood is currently under construction in the Grand Central District at the northeast corner of Central Avenue and 29th Street in St. Petersburg. The Grand Central District offers an eclectic food, bar, and art scene making the area highly desirable. Another desirable fact for this community is that the townhouse requires no HOA and is purchased in “fee simple”(like a single family home).

A second building, which is currently underway, will be located off Central Ave that will include six smaller units. These units will not have ground floor retail, but they will contain space on the first floor that could be used as an office or creative studio. Each unit will have either a one or two car garage, will range between 1,800 square feet for the smaller townhome units up to 3,100 square feet for the units with commercial space, and will have 3 bedrooms.
