The Heights continues to make major waves in the Tampa business scene. When it was first announced, the concept promised to bring condos, a hotel, multiple event venues, a co-work space and a large foodie market to Tampa Heights. Plans also revealed that The Heights Concept would extend the Tampa Riverwalk.
The Heights master plan covers 43 acres along the Hillsborough River between North Boulevard and North Tampa Street. The entire development is centered by Armature Works, a 73,344 sq. ft. building that will house a market with local food vendors. The building will also be home to the co-work space on the second floor.
Currently, the Heights Market is set to feature Ichicoro Ramen, Commune and Coffee Co., Tailored Twig — a floral boutique, Chocolate Pi, Fine and Dandy — a cocktail emporium, Chaat Corner — Indian street fare, and Steelbach Ranch — a boutique butcher shop. Joining this list of local favorites is Atlantic Beer and Oyster. The oyster bar will feature a selection of local craft beer, shrimp, crab legs, champagne infused oysters and more.
The concept began in Winter Park and looks to bring its own brand of foodie flare to Tampa’s emerging culinary scene. Their menu includes: a Pickle Board, offering samples of sweet pickles, Sriracha-infused okra, pickled onions, pickled green tomatoes and German IPA mustard; peel and eat shrimp; all-natural prime beef burgers; and raw and steamed oysters served with horseradish, chef inspired mignonette, ABO cocktail and hot sauce.
