Wrapped in an exterior sculpture inspired by of one of Salvador Dali’s most admired works, City of Drawers, the new residential condominium project, The Salvador, is poised to elevate St. Petersburg’s Arts and Innovation District. This landmark architectural statement inspired by the art of Spanish legend Salvador Dali will turn the 2nd Street South and the newly named Dali Boulevard corner into a posh new address.
A distinctive paradigm of modern living, The Salvador is infused with striking elements taken from Dali’s most admired works. Scheduled to open in late 2016, the building offers luxurious living spaces, ranging from 964-square-foot to 2,795-square-foot. Distinctive architecture throughout the 13-story boutique tower echoes the artist’s style, evident in his surrealistic painting, sculpture, photography, and film that transformed a generation of artists. The nearby Dali Museum, another dramatic architectural structure, holds the largest collection of Dali’s work in the United States.
Tampa’s DDA Development partnered with Mesh Architecture to create a dramatic display for this unique residential concept in the heart of the St. Petersburg’s Arts and Innovation District. Each residence showcases thoughtful, spacious design engaging every modern convenience sought after in stylish, luxury lifestyles. Great rooms feature a broad sweep of windows, spanning the walls to an eight foot height. Fitted with sliding glass doors accessing private balconies, clear glass balusters rim the spaces, presenting unobstructed views of downtown St. Petersburg and the surrounding Bayfront area. The great room and kitchen feature high quality wood floors and beautiful solid core wood doors throughout.
The Salvador’s amenities were selected to impress and entertain, with a nod to the environment in its solar-heated saltwater pool; energy star windows, doors and roofing; resident recycling program; lush native landscape; and an exceptional 86 walkability score. Just steps from museums, sports venues, upscale retail shops, exquisite dining and film theaters, the Salvador’s location is simply ideal.
Outdoors, The Salvador boasts an 11,000 square foot amenity deck adopting Dali’s often-used egg motif, reinforcing the importance of health, rejuvenation, fertility, and abundance. A fire pit and conversation area, yoga space, dining and entertainment space, and state-of-the-art dog walk complete the amenity deck’s features. Embracing Dali’s spirit, a custom metal screen on the south side of the building reimagines a pixelation of one of his most famous portraits.
Stepping inside The Salvador, residents and guests are greeted with a soothing, sensual rock and bamboo water garden outside the lobby. A mezzanine area with meeting rooms, and a Club room with kitchen and large format television screen offer a gracious reception for entertaining friends and family. Secure bicycle storage, a fitness room with yoga space, abundant parking, and ground-floor retail spaces further enhance liveability in this luxury lifestyle.

An iconic design, paying tribute to one of the great artistic masters of our time, this unique luxury condominium project is certain to become one of the hallmarks of St. Petersburg’s artistic heritage.
