Reflection, an 18-story condo tower, takes shape in Mirror Lake

The Sunshine City continues to elevate its status as a walkable city as more people from across the state of Florida and the country take an interest in moving to St. Pete. New developments aim to put a higher priority on accessibility to downtown’s growing list of amenities. A fresh concept called the Reflection is taking shape around Mirror Lake.

“Located just north of downtown between First Avenue North and Fifth Street, Mirror Lake is arguably the original life-giving heart of our city,” the developers noted in a release. “The spring-fed former reservoir was the town’s primary water supply following the Spanish American War. Now, St. Pete City Council describes the area as a “quiet retreat within downtown.”

Access to downtown St. Pete icons

Those living in Mirror Lake enjoy immediate access to local icons like the St. Pete Coliseum, The Hollander Hotel and its tasty Taproom, the Mirror Lake Library and St. Pete Shuffle.

Mirror Lake is also just a few steps away from the bustling a mural-adorned sprawl of the 600 Block of Central Avenue, the ‘Burg’s boozy dessert bar Beans & Barlour, and its wine and book shop Book + Bottle.

Reflection is an 18-story condominium development conceived by a group of St. Petersburg locals with decades of experience in real estate and banking. The tower will be located at the northeast corner of 3rd Avenue North and 8th Street North and will offer 88 modern-luxury residences.

Spacious units for new residents in the ‘Burg

Designed by SMP Architectures, the glass facade building will feature approximately 3,300 square feet of retail space. The tower’s residences will be located on floors seven through seventeen. The units will range from 1,167 square feet to over 2,285 square feet with between one and three bedrooms.

What sets Reflection apart from other developments in St. Petersburg?

Unlike other condominium buildings in Downtown St. Petersburg, Reflection’s top floor won’t contain penthouse units. Instead, plans call for a rooftop amenity deck featuring a resort-style pool that will offer 360 degree views of the city. Pricing will range from the $500,000s up to $1.5 million.

The view, from the renderings, looks pretty phenomenal.

Construction is projected to begin in the first quarter of 2021, and building delivery is expected for the first quarter of 2023. The sales center is located in the ground floor of The Sage building at 600 1st Avenue North. Sales are being led by KW Development Services and reservations begin this week.
