Blue Lotus high-rise coming to downtown St. Pete

smith and associates

Another day, another high-rise tower announced for the Burg. It seems folks from across the country are clamoring to set roots in the Sunshine City and developers are working exhaustively to make luxurious room for them. Blue Lotus is the latest in a series of residential towers planned for St. Pete

The concept from developer Mike Regignano will feature 17 residential boutique units and a three-level penthouse.

Blue Lotus to debut in 2020

The project should be completed by early 2020. Regignano describes the development as “a seamless mix between function and nature, offering all the latest in technology while providing the tranquility and spirit of a blue lotus flower.”

Residents will enjoy amenities like an open air pool with the security of hurricane-proof windows and sliding doors.

Blue Lotus aims to bring good vibes with its design. Zen gardens will frame the exterior of the building with blue lotus flower sculptures and flowing fountains. Sounds like paradise to us.

Meticulously designed units 

Huda Ben Ghuzzi designed the chic units — and residents will have access to her expert design services.

“When creating living environments, we bring technology and function to a human scale with desires and needs fully met,” Ben-Ghuzzi said. “We balance logic and passion as they intertwine and connect in a delicate balance.”

This isn’t Regignano’s first development in Florida. Regignano built his first multi-family property in Miami Beach in the heart of the Art Deco district in the 90s and has overseen several developments in Washington, D.C.

St. Pete could be the next Austin, TX

“St. Petersburg has the developmental potential to be another Austin, Texas, with all of its positive economic attributes,” Regignano said. “The St. Petersburg City Planning Department possesses the vision for developing this favorable and viable future, which is reflective in their plans for tomorrow and beyond.”

Seems like high praise to us. Blue Lotus will be located at 4th Avenue NE and 1st Street N.
