ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. (MO.Properties) – Engel & Völkers today announced the record-breaking sale of 100 1st Avenue N., PH 4103, a penthouse unit in The One, St. Petersburg’s newest residential high-rise building. Advisor Paul Kalloghlian of Engel & Völkers St. Pete represented the buyer in the $5,100,000 purchase, which is the highest sale price seen for a condominium unit in St. Petersburg within the last 12 months and the third highest in the city’s history.
“I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunity to facilitate this sale and it was more than a transaction for me,” said Kalloghlian. “I realized that in the wake of COVID-19, I had not truly connected and formed relationships beyond my more immediate circle. What started as an invitation for socially-distanced cocktails with neighbors who we didn’t know well, became a great friendship. The clients’ thirst for more space due to their children visiting them more often and needing a home office space became a driver for change, even amid a pandemic. It was a life-changing time which culminated into a friendship and ultimately a sale.”
The nearly 4,000 square-foot penthouse features three bedrooms, three bathrooms, one half bathroom, state-of-the-art kitchen appliances, imported European cabinetry and quartz countertops, rich porcelain flooring throughout the main living areas and extended living space onto the expansive, private terrace with glass balcony rails.
“Our market here in St. Pete continues to show incredible strength,” said Leisa Erickson, License Partner and Broker of Engel & Völkers St. Pete. “This sale is a testament to our amazing downtown waterfront which overlooks Tampa Bay, our great city parks, restaurants, museums, and general walkability as well as bikeability. We enjoy one of the best lifestyles in the country and are fortunate to experience continued development in our city to bring both new condo projects as well as businesses here for our growing population.”
The One is St. Petersburg’s newest high-rise condominium building overlooking the bay in Downtown St. Petersburg. The luxury building offers over 250 condos and is the tallest building in Downtown St. Petersburg. Community features include a soaring 30-foot-high atrium lobby, three owners’ lounges, private bar, a 5,000 square-foot free-standing fitness center, 40,000 square-foot amenity level complete with 75-foot lap pool, hot tub, grills, cabanas, a club room with catering kitchen, formal dining with daily coffee service, 24/7 security and valet and on-site property management and concierge.
The median home value in Downtown St. Petersburg is $633,019. Downtown St. Petersburg home values have gone up more than 6-percent over the past year. Selling at $1,304 per square foot, the median list price within The One penthouse is six-times higher than the median list price per square foot in St. Petersburg, which is $205.
