Strategic Property Partners, LLC (“SPP”) marked an important milestone for Water Street Tampa, the visionary 50-plus-acre downtown mixed-use development, with the groundbreaking of the project’s first residential building, 815 Water Street. The dual-tower building, located at the intersection of Channelside Drive and Water Street, the heart and spine of the neighborhood, will offer future residents an exceptional downtown location with an unmatched walkable, urban lifestyle, and it will offer visitors new food, grocery and shopping options and an improved gateway to Tampa Riverwalk.
Expected to open in late 2020, the building’s two towers will rise 21 and 26 stories and comprise 420 rental residences over 35,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. Featuring a striking façade that is punctuated with expansive private apartment terraces, the building is designed inside and out to maximize natural light and encourage residents to interact with the outdoors. Sweeping views of the Tampa skyline and historic Hillsborough Bay will be enjoyed from every home. Both towers provide distinct amenity spaces for residents, including an outdoor pool, fitness center, community kitchen, bar, and club lounge situated on the roof levels.
Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), 815 Water Street is the world-renowned architecture firm’s first-ever project in Tampa and fifth in the state of Florida. Cecconi Simone, an award-winning, Toronto-based interior design firm best known for its exquisite residential and hospitality design, has designed the interiors of 815 Water Street. Water Street Tampa’s masterplan has been designed to incorporate and promote wellness and lush green spaces, and 815 Water Street is a perfect example of how these concepts can translate to an enhanced quality of life. In addition to private terraces in each of the 420 residences, the building also features a beautifully landscaped green roof with lush plantings, designed by Miami-based landscape architect Raymond Jungles, Inc.
