The History of Starlight Tower 

The history of Starlight Tower begun almost 50 years ago. It was built in 1958 and 22 years after Don Cesar. For several decades these two buildings were the only impressive structures in the whole area. Since then the landscape has changed somehow with new construction appearing like mushrooms continuously that has accelerated in resent years due to the booming housing market and the newfound skyrocketing popularity of St Pete Beach in general.

History of Starlight Tower St Pete Beach Florida

What usually happens is that people who visited here as tourists one year returned the following year to become owners. What they say about the world of mouth been the best advertisement certainly holds true because the new owners invited here their friends from the North who subsequently also fell in love with the locality and so on and so forth. So although the overall construction picture of the area has been altered since Starlight Tower came to life, still remains today along with Don Cesar the two noticeable landmarks and actually trademarks that made St Pete Beach famous: One guarding the North and one guarding the South.
Throughout his history Starlight Tower has been in service as an upscale co-op Association Apartment Building which is still true today. Potential new buyers must be interviewed and approved by the Board of Directors for the sale to take place.
Regarding the construction of the building itself it is solid outside but also inside each apartment due to the fact that materials used for its erection were steel and concrete. Some times it can be a little annoying if for example you want to hang a new painting or anything on a wall you can not just put a nail, it doesn't go through: first you have to drill a hole and then you can put your nail and hang the item. In other words, we do not have any cheap prefabricated walls.
Our building has been through countless hurricanes and disastrous storms all these years but still stands proudly tall whereas newer structures have been demolished. Quality does count and that's what makes our building unique.

Starlight Tower has nine floors and a penthouse with a total of 72 apartment units, parking lot with mixture of private enclosed garages and open parking spaces assigned to each unit, separate building housing the Association's Office, marvelous landscaped grounds with exotic tropical flowers and palm trees, shuffleboard area hosting Annual Tournaments for the residents with winners plaque at the lobby, an astonishing gigantic dimensions swimming pool and amazing beach and unlimited beach walk!
