Obvious statement of the day: Downtown St. Pete and Tampa sure are seeing lots of residential development these days. One wonders whether there will really be that many people who can afford to live there, especially people who are interested in maintaining the hip young vibe that attracted them in the first place. Plus, if/when the economy tanks again, those buildings are all going to be empty. Not exactly a win-win. —Kate Bradshaw
