A new Publix GreenWise Market is opening on the ground-floor of 815 Water Street in 2021, and a tentative opening date has been set for August 19. That’s right, we’re just a few weeks away from a new grocery story in the heart of downtown.
The grocery store is set to be an integral part of the residential building that’s under construction at Channelside Drive and Water Street.
So, what’s the difference between GreenWise and a regular Publix? The grocery giant describes it as an organic specialty market. The store is all about promoting healthy eating and habits, though we sometimes can’t help but overindulge in the bulk section.

GreenWise also puts an emphasis on healthy prepared meals, which works perfect for us. Perks of a dinner out, but, you know, we can totally just stay in our AC’d apartment.
The CEO of Strategic Property Partners, LLC (“SPP”), the Tampa-based development firm, said, “We are excited to bring a critical grocery anchor to downtown Tampa, which will be walkable for residents of Water Street Tampa and our neighboring communities.
Water Street is all about wellness, in case you haven’t noticed. It’s the first neighborhood in the world to receive WELL D&O (Design and Operations) status under the WELL Community Standard.
Creating a WELL certified neighborhood in the heart of Tampa
Water Street Tampa aims to positively impact individuals throughout the public spaces where they spend their time. A WELL community functions to promote health and well-being across all aspects of community life.
This latest installment of GreenWise meets the Nourishment objective of the WELL D&O status by providing access to fresh foods. The grocery store will be supplemented by regular farmers’ markets throughout the neighborhood.
