Treasure Island redevelopment plans

      Treasure Island is going to reconsider the hire of a land use attorney in efforts to put forth a bullet proof plan for the north end of the island.  For years St Pete beaches redevelopment plans have been undermined by a group of attorney suits against the city.  So this seems like a wise move by the city of Treasure Island. This plan would be focused on two specific areas that if changed would be more attractive to investors financially, However before all this can happen it must pass two public hearings and the approval of voters.

     To read more on this article about Treasure Island redevelopment visit this link  Beach Beacon

In other old news on redevelopment in Treasure Island the city has issued permits back in February 2015, for a new luxury resort called Edgewater.  the northern part of Treasure Island would require a referendum to set up a new district and change density, the Edgewater permit was fairly easy no doubt as Zoning was already long established into a District allowing for High Density Short Term Stays. See more on the resort click Here for Feb, 2015 article.

The new Edgewater in construction

Speaking of short term stay, Crystal Palms which was completed in 2008 as a resort redevelopment condo hotel on TREASURE ISLAND. It was owned developed Bill Edwards and has been sold and marketed as a condo/hotel

Hotel Zamora hosts Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce

So, there I was last Wednesday evening on top of the beautiful new Hotel Zamora in St. Pete Beach

at my very first Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce event! A lovely cocktail party with fab finger food beautifully prepared by the hotel, it was a good chance to see Realtor friends that are members of the Chamber, as well as to meet & mingle with new friends in real estate and other beach businesses.

As you can see, there is a fabulous view from the roof top party area and all eyes were on the sunset!

The wonderful view included a super house at 3702 El Centro that I sold in 2009 for $5.5M, in the row of houses just under the setting sun.

A great time was had by all - certainly by me! - and I'm looking forward to attending the many more events scheduled by the Chamber.

The birds here fish off the waterfront in the shallow, protected water surrounding the isle. They don't seem to fear people, though they don't let you get too close. Hope you enjoy my attempt at a video!
