St. Petersburg is the 5th largest city in Florida, home to over 250,000 residents and part of a 2.9 million person MSA. St. Petersburg combines the amenities and variety that any large city has to offer, while providing a small-town neighborhood feel in an affordable setting. St. Petersburg has become one of the brightest spots in the Southeast, not only as a headquarters for new businesses, but as a home for a growing, talented workforce. The city also has a superb transportation, telecommunication, and utility infrastructure all designed to support business growth and workforce commutes.
