City of St. Petersburg making changes to SunRunner Bus Station areas


Florida Construction News staff writer

The City of St. Petersburg hosted two “public design charettes” to collect input about Transit Oriented Development (TOD) near and around existing SunRunner bus station areas.

The Design Charettes focused on potential changes in density/intensity, height, design standards, and transit-supportive uses around the existing SunRunner bus stations located on 32nd and 22nd Streets.

This redevelopment initiative is limited to commercial and mixed-use categories only and will not include changes to single-family parcels or parcels located within National Register and Local Historic Districts.

The City of St. Petersburg is initiating amendments to the comprehensive plan text, land development regulations (LDRs) and official zoning map to implement the SunRunner Rising development study, which focuses on best practices for transit oriented development (TOD).

A joint effort including Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA), and Forward Pinellas the goal is to help the cities of St. Petersburg, South Pasadena, and St. Pete Beach by providing community-supported land use strategies, equitable economic development plans and programs, and a county-wide framework for TOD in Pinellas County.

The project will also also consider increases in the allowed density and intensity in our commercial corridor zoning districts: Corridor Commercial Suburban (CCS) and Corridor Commercial Traditional (CCT).
