Prime location in downtown St. Petersburg

“We are thrilled that the 400 Central project continues toward marketing and construction,” said John Catsimatidis Sr., the founder of Red Apple Companies. “As a large, well-capitalized family owned firm with multiple businesses, Red Apple has the ability to look beyond temporary events and make long-term business commitments. I am optimistic about the future of St. Petersburg, a city where I have had family roots for over thirty years, and so we are continuing on all fronts with our plans to develop this iconic addition to the St. Petersburg community.”

The project is right across from popular food hubs like Il Ritrono, Greenstock, La V, Tropez, and IceBurg.

Developers anticipate construction will start in 2021. The team has just announced several milestones:
  • Red Apple has leased space for a condominium sales gallery at 465 Central Avenue, across the street from the 400 Central development. Design work is now underway.
  • Foundation plans have been filed for review with the City of St. Petersburg, and plans are underway for the permitting of preliminary site work.
  • The Federal Aviation Administration has issued a “No Hazard Letter” regarding the height of the project’s planned 46-story condominium tower. This is an important approval for towers of this height.
The project was meticulously designed over a 3-year period, taking into account the vibrant, evolving character of downtown St. Pete.
