Tampa is experiencing a small business boom, along with a surge in the number of people moving to our city. With more to do downtown — foodie hubs, concert venues, expanded Riverwalk — locals and newcomers alike are seeking out apartments in our bustling urban core.
While many developments have been announced, approved and even broken ground in the last few years, these are the five developments we’re most looking forward to:
Located at 915 North Franklin Street, this 23-story, 362 unit apartment towers is slated to open in the fall of 2017. The tower is located between two huge new foodie/cocktails hubs set top open before the end of 2016: The Franklin Manor and The Hall on Franklin. The ground floor features space for restaurants/retail.
Bainbridge Ybor Urban Flats
This $43 million, 4-story, 240 unit project will bring luxury apartments to the ever-evolving Ybor City. The construction site is located at North 17th Street and East 12th Avenue. The project will wrap around a central parking garage and feature three courtyards, a fitness center and a swimming pool.
Former Colonnade Restaurant
The purchase of the site formerly housing the famed Colonnade Restaurant sent ripples of nostalgia through the Tampa community. The restaurant is located at 3401 Bayshore Boulevard. Boasting stunning views, and nestled in a spot close Tampa’s blossoming downtown area’s as well as Hyde Park Village, the demand for units here is evident. Ascentia Development and Bastion Cooke Development are the brains behind the 24-story tower will feature 70, 3,000 sq. ft. condos.
The Port Tampa has some serious goals for the Channelside District. One of them is the construction of two landmark towers. The 75-story structures will be among the tallest and most notable in the state of Florida. The Port’s goal is to activate the Channelside community with new apartments, retail and office space, and green areas for outdoor events and activities. The towers are just a fraction of the major developments set to arrive to the area. For more information click here.
Former Trump Tower Site
The area along the Hillsborough River has been revitalized due to the success of the Tampa Riverwalk. There’s has been a vacant lot there for a few years which was slated to be the site of a new Trump tower. Those plans fell through and the spot was purchased by Feldman Equities. The company plans to construct a 52-story tower at 11 South Ashley Drive. The tower will have space for offices, retail and apartments.
