When readers of Conde Nast Traveler, the celebrated guide to the most sophisticated and inspiring destinations around the globe, ranked St. Petersburg as one of America’s Best Cities, the world took notice. But locals were not surprised, because they revel in the area’s enviable lifestyle every day.
Art House is rising in the heart of it all. The sleek 42-story tower is experiencing unprecedented sales success, in part, because everything residents need for the way they want to live, work and relax is right at their doorstep. The best of downtown is downstairs.
From outdoor activities that lend to its endearing name “the Sunshine City” to enticements that electrify the beautiful waterfront downtown, see why St. Petersburg is a prime destination to “live like a local”.
A World of Dining at Your Doorstep
St. Petersburg has become one of Florida’s buzziest cities for its eclectic dining scene. Vibrant sidewalk cafes and imaginative restaurants are just a relaxing stroll from Art House, including signature seafood and pastas by celebrity chef Fabio Viviano at Taverna Costale, and the award-winning New American fare of The Mill.
There are plenty of welcoming spots nearby for cocktails and nightlife too. Art House residents can walk across Central Avenue to Sauvignon Wine Locker & American Trattoria for a glass of their favorite wine. For craft cocktails accompanied by scenic views of Tampa Bay, Birchwood Canopy and Pier Teaki are rooftop venues par excellence.
As one of the downtown district’s most celebrated thoroughfares, Central Avenue will lure Art House residents downstairs for an artisan gluten-free muffin and espresso at Craft Kafe, or to The Lemon Grass for sushi. There is a wealth of intriguing eateries at your doorstep.
A Glittering City of the Arts
Art House is inspired by the creative spirit that pervades the city where it is now under construction. “St. Petersburg has become one of the Southeast’s premier destinations for the arts,” said Bobby Julien, CEO of The Kolter Group, developer of the luxury condominium address.
Downtown is host for world-class cultural offerings including the renowned Salvador Dali Museum, Museum of History, and the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts. The Chihuly Collection showcases eccentric creations from one of today’s most esteemed glass artists.
Performing arts venues also abound, from year-round theater, arts and music festivals in the city’s waterfront parks to the historic Palladium Theater. Mahaffey Theater/Duke Energy Center for the Arts, the city’s major performing arts center, presents an all-star lineup of international headliners.
Outdoor Living Shines Brightly in the Sunshine City
Nicknamed “Sunshine City” for its unrivaled weather, St. Petersburg offers endless outdoor activities. World-famous beaches are just minutes away, including St. Pete Beach, named the country’s best by Tripadvisor. Fort De Soto Dog Beach Park is popular with those who like to share the sands with their four-legged friends.
Picturesque waterfront parks and marinas are an easy stroll or bike ride from Art House. South Straub Park and Pioneer Park are just down Central Avenue on either side of the St. Petersburg Yacht Club. Locals gather downtown for festivals and parades, the Saturday Morning Market, and to experience the excitement of IndyCar racing on city streets at the Firestone Grand Prix.
The area is pure bliss for sports enthusiasts. Professional soccer fans can walk to home games for the Tampa Bay Rowdies. Major League Baseball action with the Tampa Bay Rays is minutes away, while the NFL’s Buccaneers are just across the bay. Golfers can tee off at some of the best courses in Florida, including several that host annual PGA Tour events.
Luxury Amenities at Downtown’s Most Inspiring New Address
Residents of Art House can enjoy a world of recreation and social activities without leaving their artfully designed address. When it is time to relax, they can ascend to “Cloud 9” on the ninth floor for a full-level amenity collection accented by views of the downtown skyline and Tampa Bay. A resort pool and spa are surrounded by intimate cabanas and day beds. A gorgeous clubroom offers a billiards table and game simulators. A private dining room, with a wine wall and cocktail terrace, overlooks city and bay.
Private amenities continue with a comprehensive fitness center, complete with training suite, yoga and spin room, a private movie theater, and two designer-appointed guest suites. A rain-or-shine dog park and pet grooming station gives four-legged residents their very own back yard.
Art House residents can get down to business at their building’s impressive lobby level with The Hub, a co-working space stylishly and technologically equipped for working from home. Amenities include a private conference room and work pods, board room, lounge seating areas and a refreshment bar to inspire quiet and creative thinking.
