Townhomes planned near Shoppes at Park Place

PINELLAS PARK — The City Council has tentatively approved a proposal to build 108 townhomes on property at the Shoppes at Park Place.

If approved at the council's Dec. 13 meeting, the vote would be the third time Pinellas Park has given a green light to building residences on the land. The 11.9 acres is on both the north and south sides of 70th Avenue N at 41st Street.

The council first approved 124 multifamily units on the property in 2004, when it voted to allow the former ParkSide Mall to be torn down to make way for the Shoppes at 7200 U.S. 19 N.

Those residences were never built. In 2005, the council approved an alternate plan to build 106 multifamily units on the property. The developer abandoned the project.

Now Beazer Homes, headquartered in Atlanta, wants to build 108 two-story townhomes there. Of those, 50 would be on the parcel on the north side of 70th and the other 58 would be on the south side where there is a drainage pond.

The development would be called Park Lane Townhomes. It is unclear how much they would cost.

Beazer, which has been in business for more than 50 years, has developments across the country, including in California, New York and Texas. In the Tampa Bay area, it has developments in Lithia, Ruskin, Holiday and Land O'Lakes.

Closer to home, it developed Sawgrass Village Townhomes just off 70th Avenue N on 46th Lane.

    Well, poop.

    Nothing else really matters, does it?

    Schools, economic development, public safety? Pfft. The Rays stadium, affordable housing, the pier? Ack. When it comes to the St. Petersburg mayoral election, sewage is the yin, the yang and the yuck.

    At Tuesday’s debate, incumbent Mayor Rick Kriseman said responsibility lies on him regarding the sewage crisis.
