Moxy Hotel by Marriott was recently topped off at Edge Collective in St. Petersburg. According to PTM Partners, a Miami-based developer, the topping-off was completed in less than seven months from the completion date.
Construction on the Moxy Hotel project is taking place on a 1.6-acre parcel located at 1234-1246 Central Ave. The Moxy Hotel project which was initially expected to be completed in 2022 was delayed by the pandemic. Consequently, the hotel is now due for delivery by the first quarter of 2024.
Upon completion, Moxy will feature open gathering spaces in its outdoor garden, and Wurzak Hotel Group will handle the management. Kellogg and Kimsey Inc will serve as the general contractor for the project.
Remarks on the project
According to PTM’s CEO, Michael Tillman, the designs for The Moxy Hotel project were fine-tuned throughout the entire process. Tillman said they tweaked the design to make the hotel into a higher-end product compared to the existing ones.
Therefore, he said Moxy’s design plan now includes Sparrow, a rooftop bar with a retro theme, and a rooftop pool. Additionally, the green spaces will be open to the public for hosting events and they will also feature rotating art installations.
Tillman also described the interior design plans of the Moxy Hotel project. He mentioned that the hotel would have a very large lobby with high ceilings and an open floor plan. In addition, a bar will be located at the entryway which will face Central. Tillman pointed out that the bar would help keep the avenue active.
About The Edge Collective in St. Petersburg
The Edge Collective is a mixed-use retail, hotel, and co-working development that is coming up in the heart of the EDGE District in downtown St. Petersburg. The project is developed through a joint venture between PTM Partners and DoveHill Capital Management.
PTM acquired the project site in October 2019 for $13 million. The location held a parking lot and a vacant retail building, which was once a furniture store and showroom. Work began in Q2 2022.
The Edge Collective will be anchored by a 163-key Moxy Hotel by Marriott with a rooftop dining and nightlife venue. The hotel will be complemented by a common garden shared by the lobby bar, coffee shop, and retail space, as well as a gym, rooftop pool, bar, and restaurant.
The project also incorporates a four-storey building that will have 17,000 square feet of ground-level retail and restaurant space with commercial space above.
