Saint James Townhomes

Slated for completion in late 2019, the Saint James Townhomes bring coastal architecture to urban living in vibrant downtown Saint Petersburg. These new townhomes, each with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in 1700 s.f., are located within walking distance of downtown’s newest grocery store and the independent restaurant scene on Central Avenue.

Quattro Beach Drive

Completed in Fall 2016 and sold out early during construction, Quattro Beach Drive delivered a creative new luxury home product to St. Petersburg’s historic Old Northeast neighborhood. Quattro’s design combines the harmonious forms of Caribbean coastal architecture with the gracious character of courtyard living. Each home offers 3,340 s.f. with 3 bedrooms plus a den/office and a detached guest house separated from the main home by a beautifully landscaped private courtyard.

Port Tampa Homes

The historic Port Tampa neighborhood is one of prestigious South Tampa’s best kept secrets. Situated halfway between the downtowns of Tampa and St. Petersburg, Port Tampa residents enjoy the conveniences of city living with all the charm of a quiet coastal enclave. J Square assembled 10 platted, but never improved, lots in Port Tampa in 2006, installed all of the required public and private infrastructure, and later sold the lots to a regional home builder.


Trader Joes and The Vitamin Shoppe,
St. Petersburg, FL

J Square developed this project with freestanding buildings for Trader Joe’s and the Vitamin Shoppe on an infill redevelopment site located one mile from downtown St. Petersburg. Sited on the property line, the new retail buildings create an urban edge along busy 4th Street North, screening the parking from view. Several large oak trees were preserved to maintain historic character. This center features the first Trader Joe’s store in Pinellas County and has been embraced by the surrounding neighbors, overcoming initial concerns about traffic and parking.

4th Street Garden Shops, St. Petersburg, FL

Adaptive re-use of an Art Deco building constructed as one of St. Petersburg’s first auto dealerships in 1940 into 7,300 s.f. of boutique retail space. J Square added parking and was able to create contemporary retail bays by demolishing the rear 20’ of the building and constructing contemporary storefront entries while preserving the timeless Art Deco features fronting 4th Street.


J Square also specializes in site selection and development of freestanding retail stores for key national retailers on difficult-to-find infill sites in the Tampa Bay market, and has developed stores/sites for Starbucks, O’Reilly’s Auto Parts (under development) and Wawa.
