An 109-year-old historic St. Petersburg home will be moved to make way for a 12-story condo.

Located at 136 4th. Ave. NE, the Bay Gables home is described in archived materials as “a Frame Vernacular structure that has incorporated Queen Anne and Colonial Revival details.”

Those same materials say that the house — which got its historic designation in 1994 — was originally owned by a St. Petersburg pioneer merchant before being converted to a boarding house for seasonal tourists.

TBBJ wrote that the house would be moved to the corner of Eighth Avenue North and Dartmoor Street — less than a mile away — to make room for The Perry, a 12-story condo tower that’s already pre-selling 20 condos that range from 1,700-2,700-square feet (two, 5,000 square-foot penthouses are also in the plan).

The Perry — whose name is a nod to an early 1900s St. Pete developer, C. Perry Snell — will have a rooftop terrace and fitness center among other amenities. Construction is expected to start in 2020.
