43-acre concept reinvents local neighborhood
Since The Heights concept was announced back in 2016, Tampa has been buzzing with anticipation. Part of the project will see a massive new foodie hall open in the 70,000 sq. ft. Armature Works building in Tampa Heights. That food hall will feature local concepts like Whatever Pops and Ichicoro, along with several fresh faces Tampa has yet to experience.
The project also calls for the creation of a new co-work space and two event venues. The next phase of the project involves the construction of a new hotel in the area, as well.
Luxury apartments, retail coming to Tampa Heights
Beyond food and drink, The Heights concept aims to add more living space to the flourishing Tampa area. The Pearl, a 28,873 mixed-use development, is currently under construction. It will feature 314 luxury residential units with retail space on the ground floor.
Situated on the North Bank of the Hillsborough River, residents will be able to enjoy immediate access to the Tampa Riverwalk, which offers easy pedestrian routes to Curtis Hixon Park, the Convention Center, Amalie Arena and Bayshore Boulevard. The Pearl should be open by the fall of this year. You can visit the concept’s website for updates.
Major foodie additions to Public Market/Armature Works
Toward the end of 2016, several major additions were announced for the 43-acre Heights project. Local foodie favorite Ava joined the public market roster. Atlantic Beer & Oyster, a Winter Park staple, is also set to join the market once it opens.
These spots will be situated next to Armature Works which will add a co-work space, social areas with stunning rooftop views and two more major foodie spots to indulge in. Follow The Heights on Facebook for updates. You can also learn more by following Armature Works on Facebook.
