TAMPA, Fla. — Construction crews are breaking ground on the second largest new development in Tampa.

Dubbed the Westshore Marina District, the series of high rise condo towers, Town apartment buildings, townhomes will include retail shops and waterfront restaurants.

“Instead of looking at what is traditionally industrial, you’re going to have some glass towers rising over the water,” said Beck Daniel, director of development for BTI Partners.

The company bought up land on the Tampa side of the Gandy Bridge after a previous project failed during the recession.

“People haven’t seen anything for a while,” said Daniel pointing to the construction behind him.  “The good news is it’s all happening at once, right now.”

At the center of it all will be Marina Pointe, a series of three 16-story condominium towers overlooking Tampa Bay.

“You can see St. Pete and you can see downtown Tampa,” said Daniel of the view overlooking Tampa Bay.

Crews will break ground on the first tower this fall, with the sales gallery set to open next month.

Already visible to drivers on Gandy is the wood framework for the new Town Westshore Marina Apartments.  It’s one of the two apartment complexes which will eventually surround a massive parking garage hiding it from view.

There will also be two separate townhouse projects, with plans for a grand total of as many as 1,500 new housing units throughout the entire development.

Daniel says the No. 1 selling point for all of these new homes will be views and access to the water, complete with a massive new marina.

“It has 13 acres of deep water basin with floating docks, marinas, gas, fish stations, kayak launches and opportunities for dining and drinks when you come back.”

Developers say with waterfront restaurants and shopping, the Westshore Marina District won’t just be for those with enough money to live in the community.

There will also be a series of public parks and bike paths connecting to the Friendship Trail and even new water taxi service connecting the Westshore area to St. Pete and downtown Tampa.

Along with the new Selmon Connector, which is expected to reduce traffic on Gandy, the entire area will undergo a massive transformation over the next two years, with both projects scheduled for completion in 2020.

 

ST. PETERSBURG — Miami’s Related Group, one of Florida’s top developers, would like to build an “iconic’’ condo tower in downtown St. Petersburg, the company’s chairman and CEO says.

Though the idea is very preliminary, it shows the continuing interest in what has become one of the trendiest downtowns in the state. And while Related already is a major player in Tampa Bay, it would be the company’s first condo project in the area.

“St. Petersburg has grown beautifully,’’ Related founder Jorge Pérez said Wednesday at the ground-breaking of a downtown apartment project. “It has the best of both worlds, an urban livability with museums and shops and all kinds of different restaurants, and it offers a mix of water views that is difficult to find.

“It’s got the perfect location and we want to do the most iconic building, world-class.’’

Before the ceremony, Pérez and several Related executives walked along Beach Drive, lined with condo towers, and stopped by the sales office of ONE St. Petersburg, a 41-story, 253-unit tower under construction a few blocks from the water.

When asked if he thought any of the downtown towers were “iconic,’’ Pérez had a quick answer: “Not a one.’’

“We are very big on the arts,’’ added Pérez, the main benefactor of the Pérez Art Museum Miami. “If we do a luxury condo we will spend millions and millions of dollars on artwork.’’

Related would want a site close to downtown St. Petersburg’s waterfront, but Pérez acknowledged it likely would involve demolishing an existing structure because of the lack of vacant land. If the condo project came to fruition, Pérez said, it would be marketed to international as well as domestic buyers.

Since it started in 1979, Related has built, renovated and managed more than 90,000 condominium and rental units, including four Trump Towers. In recent years, the company has expanded beyond South Florida, and has focused increased attention on fast-growing areas like Tampa Bay.

Under a banner slung between a front loader and an excavator, Pérez, St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman and several others wielded gold-plated shovels to officially break ground on the ICON Central apartments in the 800 block of Central Avenue.

Work has already begun on the 368-unit project, which will include a seven-story parking garage, a 15-story apartment tower and 35,000 square feet of space for shops and a restaurant. Part of the retail space will be in a section of the century-old, long vacant Union Trust bank building that Related is preserving.

“They’ve done a very good job of marrying this new structure into the historic structure (of the bank),’’ Kriseman said. He touted ICON Central, which covers an entire city block, as a major step in creating “continuity’’ along Central Avenue.

“There were two blocks when I became mayor that I said I wanted to reactivate,’’ said Kriseman, who took office in 2014 and is now starting his second term. “This is one of them. It’s such a huge part of this area that has come back to life.

“The other “missing tooth in the smile,’’ as Kriseman put it, is the 400 block of Central, where two hulking, abandoned buildings were finally torn down in 2016 to make way for a planned mixed-used tower.

From St. Petersburg, Pérez and the rest of the Related team headed to Tampa to check on the company’s apartment projects there — the 400-unit Town Westshore under construction in the Westhshore Marina District; Manor Riverwalk underway on the former Tampa Tribune site; and ICON Harbour Island, just finished and about 40 percent leased.

The ICONs in Tampa and St. Petersburg are in Related’s new line of high-end apartments, with prices to match — top rents are around $4,000.

Much of St. Pete’s high-rise construction boom has occurred in close proximity to the city’s downtown waterfront, but the new tower — named Icon Central — further validates the appeal of St. Pete’s Central Avenue corridor to developers and investors.

The innovative, modern architecture is changing the face of the burgeoning city and revitalized downtown area. The Arlington St. Pete, ICON’s first addition to the evolution, has concluded sales and construction. The blending of full concrete block construction with wood accents, enormous windows, contemporary accents and bold colors make the buildings along Arlington Ave N unmistakable, and the rooftop living spaces immediately catch the attention of all passersby.

Two new communities are available nearby including The District on 9th and Uptown Kenwood, which are currently selling from the $300s. The communities offer multiple townhome floorplans ranging from 1,400 to 2,600 square feet with myriad customizable finishes and upgrades to select from. Residents of both will have easy access to many cultural pursuits including dog-friendly cafes, a variety of museums and art galleries, numerous local breweries and world class beaches.

The District on 9th is located just two blocks from Central Avenue near the new urban Publix and will include private rooftop terraces, live-work units, and the ultimate in pedestrian connectivity to the surrounding area. Construction on the initial phase has begun and is scheduled for completion around summer 2018.

Uptown Kenwood is situated in the Historic Kenwood area, framed by quaint tree-lined brick streets, art galleries and historic bungalows. Uptown Kenwood will feature a community pool, dog park and a gathering area with fire pit while the townhomes will offer private balconies and lush green surroundings to relax and entertain. Uptown Kenwood is preparing to break ground on construction for the initial phase, scheduled for completion around summer 2018.

“We specialize in developing contemporary townhomes in desirable downtown neighborhoods across the Southeastern US with a strong emphasis on great design. Our goal is to offer a live-work-play environment for our residents to take advantage of an urbanist lifestyle only in the hottest up-and-coming neighborhoods” said ICON Residential Principal Mike Bednarski, a managing partner with the developer. He added, “We are getting a lot of buyers that have been craving a luxury housing product at a reasonable price centrally located in the St. Petersburg area.”

Atlanta’s biggest, boldest, public-art statement in recent memory is a wrap. For the most part.

At Icon Midtown, Atlanta’s tallest new Apartment tower in a decade, the muralist HENSE has completed an untitled piece that measures 86 feet tall and 65 feet wide. For a 3-D effect, circular aluminum panels dot the work—spanning up to 24 feet themselves—and will be backlit to produce a glow.

HENSE, aka Alex Brewer, was a prolific Atlanta graffitist who transitioned to mural and gallery work and now claims commissions around the world.

Lording over West Peachtree and 14th streets, his first piece to incorporate lighting is an array of geometric abstracts that nods to his recent sculptural work.

“It’s exciting just to work on a commission of this scale—and a project that’s frankly changing the feel of the city here,” Brewer said on site last month. “It’s not something you do every day.”

The $118-million venture is Florida-based Related Development’s first foray into Georgia. Upscale Icon will offer 390 apartments ranging from studios up three-bedrooms flats (from 601 to 1,478 square feet). Rents, we’re told, are still being finalized.

“I’ve always seen this as the gateway to [Atlanta’s] arts district and Piedmont Park, so we tried to incorporate art,” said Ed Allen, Related’s senior vice president of development. “The building is sculptural itself.”

Allen expects the 39-story project to wrap in early 2018, with a highly anticipated Whole Foods (and pub) at Spring and 14th streets. Elsewhere, a 4,000-square-foot restaurant slot will be situated along West Peachtree. The site was formerly two surface parking lots.

Lighting elements are pending, but the final paint strokes were applied to the HENSE mural within the past week. Here’s how the two-month project came together:

Luxury apartments in Westshore Marina District take key step forward

A luxury residential development near the intersection of Westshore and Gandy boulevards has landed a construction loan.

Related Development LLC, the rental and mixed-use subsidiary of Related Group, said Thursday that it has closed a $52 million construction loan for the development of Town Westshore, a 396-unit apartment complex at 5001 Bridge St. (See map embedded above.)

SunTrust Bank is the lender, Related said. A mortgage has not been yet been filed in Hillsborough County.

Town Westshore Marina Apartments is part of the Westshore Marina District, a mixed-use development underway on the Westshore waterfront. BTI Partners, based in Fort Lauderdale, is the master developer of the project.
