Groundbreaking nears for Orange Station residential and retail development

Groundbreaking nears for Orange Station residential and retail development

A rendering of Orange Station

One of St. Pete’s most exciting developments, Orange Station in the EDGE District is set to begin construction this fall on the site of the former St. Petersburg Police Department at 1301 Central Avenue. The mixed-use building is the first of its kind in the EDGE District and will be home to retail and office spaces, as well as 10 floors of modern one-, two- and three-bedroom homes. 

Dubbed The Residences at Orange Station, renderings of the soon-to-come condo units were released recently and highlight industrial-style floor-to-ceiling windows, designer finish packages and luxury appliances and plumbing fixtures. With a variety of floor plans available, 30% of the units have already been sold through Smith & Associates, including two of the three penthouse sweets.


Not only is Orange Station bringing almost 200,000 square feet of office, retail and residential space to the area, but the project includes a much-needed parking garage that will add 400 public spaces to the quickly-growing EDGE District. Additionally, Orange Station will be home to a public plaza with outdoor cafes, and the facility will also function as a Sunrunner rapid transit line station.

Notably, Orange Station will add to the ‘Burg’s vibrant art scene with a new installation paying tribute to “The Courageous 12,” the 12 Black St. Petersburg police officers who successfully sued the city in the 1960s to gain the same rights as their white counterparts.

Overall, Orange Station will provide 50,000 square feet of Class A office space, 130,000 square feet of residential areas, 14,000 square feet of street-front retail along Central Ave and 1st Ave N, and a 600-space parking garage, including 400 public spaces.

The Residences at Orange Station to offer an urban oasis

For those with an eye toward making their home in the lively yet laid-back EDGE District, The Residences at Orange Station will offer 61 new luxury condominiums through Smith & Associates Real Estate, with prices expected to begin in the $600,000’s. The condos will be available in a variety of floor plans and sizes, ranging from one bed/1 bath units all the way up to three bed/three bath penthouses.

In addition to custom design packages and multiple price points, amenities include private garage parking, individual storages units on every floor, bicycle storage and an on-site gym and pool/spa. And of course, residences will be walking distance to all the great shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, breweries and event venues the EDGE District has to offer, as well as biking paths to the beaches. For more information on making the vibrant neighborhood home, fill out the form below.


In addition to The Residences, there will be 42 workforce apartments available at Orange Station in a building dubbed The WYE in homage to the triangular junction often found in railroads. The WYE is part of St. Pete’s drive to ensure affordable housing is available throughout the city. 

Orange Station is expected to become a hub of activity in the EDGE District. The project is being developed by a joint venture of local companies, including J Square Developers, DDA Development and Backstreets Capital, LLC.

Smith & Associates are now taking appointments from interested parties for a private session to learn more about The Residences at Orange Station.
