The History of Venetian Isles
In 1958, developer George R. Davis began acquiring the submerged land rights to the area that is now Venetian Isles. This was a landfill project. At the time, it was one of St. Petersburg’s most costly development projects to date. Over the next few years, a man-made archipelago emerged out of Tampa Bay and Venetian Isles was born. Building began in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
As a result of its engineered origins, Venetian Isles has an elevation of approximately five to seven feet above the natural shoreline. This raised elevation has proven to be successful in sparing Venetian Isles the same flooding problems as neighboring areas during Florida’s hurricane season. In fact, of the over 19 hurricanes to hit Florida since 1950, only a few homes on the outlying shoreline were ever effected by the flooding.
