St. Petersburg

Description
St. Petersburg, the glamorous starlet of Florida’s land boom of the 1920s, has entered its second golden age offering one of the most surprising cultural climates on Florida’s coast, a major league sports market, and a gateway to the state’s impressive high tech corridor. With a population of 249,090 as of 2004, St. Petersburg is the fourth largest city in the state of Florida. The median age for St. Petersburg is 39.3 and is one of the lowest in Pinellas County. St. Petersburg is no longer regarded as a retirement city as its emphasis on culture, sports, education, business, and tourism have diversified its appeal and economy. There are now more residents age 35 and younger than 65 and older. Pinellas County, where St. Petersburg is located, boasts the 22nd largest school district in the nation.

St. Petersburg neighborhoods offer Mediterranean style waterfront villas, 1920s wooden bungalows, downtown luxury condominiums and urban-style lofts. Older neighborhoods are making a comeback in the midst of a city renaissance, where property values once declining 10 percent are up in value more than 30 percent, while downtown is emerging as one of the city’s hottest residential markets. An innovative Neighborhood Partnership Program has energized the city’s neighborhood associations, now numbering 112 - more than at any time in history. That’s why the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development called St. Petersburg a national model for the success of its revitalization efforts.
