PETERSBURG, FL – Greystar, a global leader in the investment, development, and management of high-quality rental housing properties, announced that Bay area high-rise Ascent St. Pete celebrated its topping off on April 29. Rising higher than any other rental community in the Tampa Bay region, Ascent St. Pete provides residents incredible, 360-degree views of Tampa Bay as well as the Gulf of Mexico. The project will feature outdoor pool amenities at both the sixth and 36th floors.
“Located in the heart of St. Petersburg, Ascent will provide an unparalleled rental housing experience in the Tampa Bay region,” David King, Senior Director of Development, said. “It has a creative and eccentric interior that complements its modern exterior, which is emphasized by expansive glass balconies at nearly every unit. Overall, Ascent connects with St. Pete’s vibrant energy and creates an environment where residents can feel like they vacation where they live.”
The podium-style high-rise will reach 36 stories with 357 units that feature floorplans that include studios, one-, two- and three-bedrooms as well as penthouse units with elevated finishes and access to dedicated penthouse amenities. Ascent St. Pete boasts a 94 percent walkability score.
Partnering with AC by Marriott, the mixed used project includes a 172-key hotel which will allow Ascent St. Pete to augment the resident experience with shared outdoor amenities and services. The hotel will also feature a separately branded restaurant on the eighth floor with an outdoor terrace and bar.
The high-rise also contains more than 6,800 sq. ft. of ground-level retail space along First Ave. and 2nd Street North.
Ascent St. Pete is scheduled to open in January 2023 with final construction completion slated for May 2023.
