St. Petersburg condos work around zoning requirements
Architects at Lord, Aeck & Sargent, Atlanta, had to work around city zoning requirements in order to fit the desired number of units in the Sage Condominiums in St. Petersburg, Fla. The finished structure assures that the condos will not be overwhelmingly tall and dense from the sidewalk, with a 12-story tower set back from the street and two street side low-rise portions. The three buildings are joined by a two-story lobby and upper-level amenity terrace. A landscaped entry courtyard separates the four- and five-story portions. The $32 million, 262,000-sf project also relocated and renovated an existing alley, creating a distinctive resident parking entrance.
