Possible tenants named for the Shops at St. Pete


Names emerge for possible Shops at St. Pete tenants

A representative of the Edwards Group is starting to throw out names of tenants she'd love to sign for the Shops at St. Pete, formerly known as BayWalk. Retail broker Faith Hope Consolo said her "dream tenants" include J. Crew, H&M, Zara, True Religion, Williams-Sonoma, Z Gallerie and Pier 1 Imports in a recent interview published in Bay Pop magazine. Consolo is a retail "diva" in New York hired by Bill Edwards, the Shops' owner, to help fill the long-struggling downtown center. Consolo told the Tampa Bay Times she wants a variety of prices in the shopping plaza so customers can spend $5 or $5,000. Bay Pop is a quarterly lifestyle magazine founded by Jerry Powers, the co-founder of the successful Ocean Drive magazine that covers life and entertainment in Miami. Edwards persuaded Powers to create a magazine for Tampa Bay but is not financially involved with Bay Pop, according to a spokesman.

Apsco moving new place on 22nd Street

Apsco has left the building. At least it has started to leave the one at 899 34th St. N. The appliance sales and repair company has moved to 2533 22nd Ave. N. The location just west of Lowe's and Home Depot will put it in a more competitive spot to lure customers shopping for ovens, refrigerators and more. The 34th Street store is still open, offering sales on some appliances though it's not clear for how long. There is no longer a phone line working in that location. Apsco, which has been in the area for 40 years, also has stores in Clearwater and Largo.

  5. 'Garbage juice' seen as threat to drinking water in Florida Panhandle county


    To Waste Management, the nation's largest handler of garbage, the liquid that winds up at the bottom of a landfill is called "leachate," and it can safely be disposed of in a well that's 4,200 feet deep.

    Three samples that were displayed by Jackson County NAACP President Ronstance Pittman at a public meeting on Waste Management's deep well injection proposal. The sample on the left is full of leachate from the Jackson County landfill, the stuff that would be injected into the well. The sample on the right shows leachate after it's been treated at a wastewater treatment plant. The one in the middle is tap water.
