This Salvador is a significant addition to the burgeoning south side of downtown St. Petersburg. With 74 units ranging from 960 to 2,800 square feet, the building is intended to appeal to a wide range of family types. The ground level is activated by a 3,500 square foot commercial space and a two-story lobby. The third floor contains a fitness center and clubroom opening onto a large amenity terrace above the two-level parking garage. Each unit has a large terrace taking advantage of expansive views of the waterfront and downtown skyline.

Located two blocks from the Salvador Dali Museum, the building’s design incorporates some of the artist’s personal symbology and compositional strategies such as pixilation and interweaving. The design of the amenity terrace is inspired by his use of the egg as a metaphor for revitalization. Dali’s “City of Drawers” inspired the composition of the building’s prominent street corner with the balconies alternating between southern and western exposures.
