Water's Edge high-rise condo officially open

City officials and the developers of the Water's Edge high-rise condominium held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday at the tower's front door, signifying that it's now officially open for business. City leaders hope this high-rise and a neighboring one, Station Square, along with a recent streetscaping project and the upcoming boat slips in Clearwater Harbor, will help revitalize downtown. "There's one piece of the puzzle that's been missing, and that's downtown residential," said Bill Sturtevant, chairman of the Clearwater Downtown Partnership. The 25-story tower, where 153 condos range in price from the $300,000s to $1.7-million, is now the city's tallest building.
