Inc., a corporate site selection firm based in Boca Raton, completed a national site selection study that reflects trends that have sprung up in the corporate world since the pandemic began. Remote working, rethinking preferences for office space and the growing demands for amenities to entice workers have shifted focus toward new cities as corporations look for homes that fit their needs.
The development team for the project is being led by Edge Central Development Partners, a joint venture group involving St. Petersburg-based J Square, Tampa-based DDA Development and Backstreets Capital, which announced the development’s milestone and that the sales for the residential units have officially launched this week.

Edge Central Development Partners’ planned Orange Station at the Edge project, in St. Petersburg, has undergone numerous changes since the city chose it to redevelop the former St. Petersburg Police headquarters site in November 2019.
Many of the changes stemmed from the impact of the pandemic and influenced alterations and new designs for the two-acre tract at 1300 First Ave. North.
Now, however, Edge Central — a team made up of Tampa’s DDA Development, J Square Developers and Backstreets Capital — says demolition of the former police quarters could begin within 60 days.

Edge Central Development Partners, the joint venture planning an office, residential and retail project at the site of the former St. Petersburg Police headquarters, has unveiled a new name and new design for the development.
The project will be called Orange Station at the Edge, a name that recalls the Orange Belt Railway that made its first stop in St. Petersburg in 1888 at a temporary depot just blocks from the site at 1300 1st Ave. N. in the EDGE District where the development will be built.
