Old Northeast History
The Historic Old Northeast Neighborhood encompasses 425 acres. The neighborhood, one of the first in the City, was platted in 1911 by C. Perry Snell and J. C. Hamlett. Many of the founding families of the City have made The Historic Old Northeast their home
The neighborhood is known for its diverse early 20th Century architecture that includes a variety of architectural styles and homes ranging in scale from small cottages to some of the largest homes in the City. Most homes were developed in a traditional pattern featuring porches and stoops that address the street edge, while garages and utilitarian functions are accessed from the alley network. Building lots are typically 60 feet wide by 100-128 feet deep. Narrower, 45 foot wide lots are common in the neighborhood south of 13th Avenue, while some lots wider than 60 feet can be found north of 13th.
The neighborhood features an extensive gridded street pattern system with an alleyway net- work. Many streets are paved in Augusta brick and edged with granite curbs. Hexagon block sidewalks which line both sides of the street are another common feature within the neighbor- hood. An enveloping street tree canopy reinforces the pedestrian quality of the neighborhood. The developers of the neighborhood dedicated significant portions of the adjacent waterfront to park land, another unique feature of the neighborhood.
The Granada Terrace neighborhood located within the boundaries of The Historic Old North- east is a distinctive early greenbelt or garden district style of neighborhood, one of the first in St. Petersburg. This portion of the neighborhood is known for its curvilinear streets and extensive use of boulevardier medians containing public monuments and landscaping features. Granada Terrace was also developed by C. Perry Snell and all buildings were required to be de- signed in the Mediterranean style of architecture. In 1988, this neighborhood was designated a Local Historic District by the City of St. Petersburg.
The entire neighborhood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003. The district is recognized for its largely intact number of early 20th century homes reflecting the tourist industry in the State of Florida in the first half of the 20th century. The neighborhood features 3,220 contributing structures, making it one of the two largest National Register districts in Florida.

Old Northeast Demographics
Incorporated in 1974, The Historic Old Northeast Neighborhood Association, in conjunction with the City of St. Petersburg’s Great Neighborhood Partnership program, has been on the front edge of neighborhood revitalization activities. Strong momentum began with the City’s 1987 Comprehensive Plan which identified a strong desire by the City and residents to address housing needs and housing conditions within neighborhoods. This led to HONNA being the first neighborhood to develop a neighborhood plan to ad-dress comprehensive revitalization. That plan was adopted in August 1990. Many of the first planning tools created by the City such as Neighborhood Design Review and the Certificate of Inspection Program of rental property were developed and implemented in this neighborhood.
The boundaries of HONNA are 5th to 30th Avenues North and Fourth Street to Tampa Bay on the east. The neighborhood was platted beginning in 1911, with housing construction beginning at that time. The majority of the homes in Historic Old Northeast were built in the 1920s, and a second burst of development occurred in the 1950s.
