On Thursday, December 12, 2019, St. Pete-based Salt Palm development hosted a groundbreaking for the latest project, The Royal. The development, found at 545 4th Ave. S. on the edge of the St. Pete Innovation District, will boast 13 eco-conscious luxury smart homes with sleek architectural lines, expansive glass windows, sustainable building elements, built-in smart home tech and much more.
As a 1% For The Planet Member and Certified B Corp, a type of for-profit business that balances purpose and profit, Salt Palm is dedicated to the health and prosperity of the environment and people in the communities in which they build.
At the event, Founder Jared Meyers made the pledge to use half of the profits on this latest real estate project to benefit the St. Petersburg community and the business for good movement in the state. Mayor Kriseman joined the celebration, saying “B-Corps are all about giving back to the community, taking a portion or in some cases all of their profits and investing them back into the community. Philosophically, they are aligned with what we’re trying to accomplish here in St. Pete.”
