Massive Waterfront Investment 'Reinvents' Tampa
At Curbed, Patrick Sisson writes about what’s happening to the formerly "underutilized, underappreciated, and unattractive" neighborhoods that make up the Tampa waterfront.
Today, Tampa’s waterfront is a magnet for investment: The city’s downtown has become the locus of a wave of construction projects that will bring an estimated $13 billion on investment to the Tampa region through 2022, according to Dodge Data & Analytics.
[Developer James] Nozar has compared all the activity in the once-overlooked urban core as filing in a hole in a doughnut. But it can also be seen as a zipper: The new downtown core, as well as the development heading north along the Hillsborough River, will ideally pull together the neighborhoods on the east and west of the waterway.
