Urban Landings and Harbour’s Edge
The other day while viewing my site stats I noticed an interesting search term brought a viewer to this blog. The term was: “how are harbour’s edge and urban landings the same apartment complex”. It’s a very valid question that I thought I’d clear up.Many times on this site I have referred to the “Urban Edge” apartment project. But Urban Edge is actually a complex consisting of two seperate communities. One community is Urban Landings and the other is Harbour’s Edge. These two names combine to give the project name “Urban Edge”.
So why are there two apartment communities in the same complex
The answer is actually pretty simple. One portioncaters to the needs of seniors on fixed incomes while the other is more market driven. Harbour’s Edge is an age restricted 55+ community with rents ranging from $717 for a one bedroom/ one bathroom unit to $914 for a three bedroom/ two bathroom unit. Units range from 667 to 1093 square feet. Some amenities atHarbour’s Edge include:
- Community Amenities
- Planned Resident Activities
- Computer Training
- Literacy Training
- Health and Nutrition Classes
Meanwhile, Urban Landings apartments charge more market driven rents which will range from $1399 to $1599 for two bedroom and three bedroom units, respectively.Units will be either 925 or 1093 square feet.
It’s a great idea to mix two different demographics in the same apartment complex. Downtowns thrive on diversity, and I think the more people who live downtown the better it will get. The City of St.Petersburg should encourage more developments like the Urban Edge project.
The Sol, an apartment project being developed by the NRP Group on a parking lot once owned by the Tampa Bay Times, is now named Beacon 430. The project is located at 430 3rd Ave S and consists of 326 apartments ranging from studios to three bedroom units between 600 and 1,200 square feet. The project is two blocks west ofCampbell Landingsand one block from theHarbour’s Edgeapartment project.

New 72 Unit CondoTower
The $40 million project would have 13 residential floors above a three floor parking garage.
Many neighborhood associations opposed the proposed project because they believe it is too large for the historic neighborhood. However, the Walker Whitney Plaza condo tower is less than a block away and is of similar size with 56 units on 13 floors.
