Units have already started selling at The Residences at 400 Central, which aims to be the tallest residential tower on Florida’s Gulf Coast.

Driving the news: Developer Red Apple Real Estate announced the start of sales yesterday. Buyers can book private appointments at the sales gallery across the street from the building site at 465 Central Avenue in downtown St. Petersburg.

  • "Demand is already exceeding expectations, as early buyers are already placing reservations," project spokesman Richard Mullins told Axios.

Two suburban neighborhoods in the area — East Lake-Orient Park and Egypt Lake-Leto in Tampa — are now, for the first time, mostly occupied by renters rather than homeowners, according to a new study from RENTCafé.

  • And trend lines show that New Port Richey and Temple Terrace will be next and could change from owner majority to renter majority in the next five years.
  • Westchase and Riverview also saw explosive growth in renters.

Why it matters: Buyers are exhausted, and hardworking people are priced out of housing in Tampa Bay.
