24 Jun Top Projects That Will Reshape Tampa
Nestled between Tampa and St. Petersburg, the 52-acre master-planned project will reshape the Tampa Bay area. Plans for the $600 million development call for a 1,750-unit residential component, shops, offices, restaurants, nearly 2 miles of waterfront parks and walking trails, as well as a 150-slip, deep water marina for vessels up to 100 feet.
Fort Lauderdale-based developer BTI Partners and its associates are behind this new western gateway to Tampa. At the end of February, BTI broke ground on Marina Pointe, a component of the Westshore Marina District that includes three residential towers, the marina and a retail center. The first of the 16-story condominium buildings is expected to open in 2022, with 40 percent of the units already presold. Other elements of the luxury mixed-use community are also moving forward. BTI Partners intends to deliver the retail component of the district, Marina Landings, later this year.
