Hey everyone,

I just graduated and am moving to St. Pete for a job. I'm looking for something maybe downtown? (everyone on here seemed to think it was a great place), non sketchy (read fusion 1560 was maybe in a bad part).

Basically I can spend up to 1100 on a 1/1 and want to know where are the 'cool' places to live. And hopefully I qualify for these 'cool' places

Anyone young and live in a great place and want to share?

Thanks so much for any advice!!!

Come be my friend haha! I'm a St. Pete noob (living in Denver now) and recent college grad as well. Currently I'm in the process of getting accepted for a 1/1 at The Sage (thesageliving.com). I have to pay a lot for it, but it's in a great location downtown near everything and really nice. If things work out I will be living there in late December.

I'm not sure what you are looking for, but from my short 3 day visit to St. Pete back in May, it was clear downtown was the place to be for a young single person who wants to be close to the action.

I had time to visit Fusion while I was there. I liked the complex, gym, pool, etc. But the location is absolutely terrible if you are planning on going out to the bars/clubs and walking there and back. I'm sure it would be a fun place, but distance is a huge downside. Plus I heard the same about being in a "sketchy" location.

Thanks so much for the advice. Ill be moving there at the beginning of December and hope to find a place this week while I'm there.

The sage looked a little pricey. Downtown looks like a great place to live, was there a runner-up to your choice? Any other places I should check out?

Thanks again

If I had to choose I would say The Madison, which is right next door to The Sage. A 1 bd will run you about 1000-1100 I believe. Madison gets you the great location, and is not that bad from what I hear. Only problem is you need to find one that is available...nice housing is very hard to come by in downtown st. pete due to demand.

I have seen ads on craigslist and condos.com for the Madison. Hopefully one pops up so you can check it out.

There is also a place called The Beacon (nearby to Sage and Madison). I never visited it because I had my mind set on Sage but it's worth a look I suppose. Oh and you might as well visit Fusion for the heck of it, maybe you will like it despite it's bad location.

Will you be going out a lot? That is honestly one of the biggest factors that you should consider in choosing where to live. See my previous posts I made when I asked people back in May where to live based on my lifestyle.

Where to live in St. Pete?

ablueg35,
Can you give me any information as to how you were able to contact someone at The Sage. I am also looking to perhaps get an apartment there and am having a difficult time contacting anyone. Also, after having lived there, can you give me any reviews? Thank you for your help!
