A look into the future of Tampa’s skyline

As United Landmark Associates dives into 2017, we explore some of the more notable current and future development plans for some popular areas of Tampa Bay:

Tampa International Airport Expansion

Where: Tampa’s Westshore area
The ongoing development of the airport’s 3,000 plus acres is planned in three phases to handle more than double the current number of passengers serviced each year. The $1 billion expansion adds further appeal to an already bright spot in the Tampa Bay region, and offers an impressive first impression for travelers to this metro region.

Strategic Property Partners – Unnamed Project

Where: Amalie Arena area south of downtown Tampa
The redevelopment of 53 acres surrounding Amalie Arena calls to expand the convention center, add 5,000 new residences and 650 hotel rooms, create a new entertainment area and much more. Bill Gates, head of Cascade Investment LLC, will help finance the plans developed by Jeff Vinik, owner of the Tampa Bay Lightning. The $2 billion plus redevelopment project is set to be the most significant multi-use project in Tampa.

Port Tampa Bay and Development Partners – Port 2030

Where: 45 acres north of Florida Aquarium between Channelside Drive and the Ybor Channel
With plans for a waterside plaza and parks, marina village, multipurpose cruise and conference center, offices, retail, expanded parking and two landmark residential high-rises, Port 2030 could potentially compete with the adjacent Amalie Arena project. With over 9 million square feet of development on the horizon, the project is expected to generate over $300 million in revenues to the Community Redevelopment Area, and enhance the Channel District with an exciting new multipurpose destination.


Where: Former site of the Colonnade Restaurant along Bayshore Boulevard
The team at United Landmark Associates is excited to be handling the marketing for this exceptional residential project. Since acquiring the Colonnade site earlier this year for more than $6 million, Ascentia Development Group and partner Batson-Cook Development Co. have proposed plans that include a luxury 24-story tower with 70 residential units. The parcel at the southwest corner of West Julia Street and Bayshore Boulevard is among the last sites on Bayshore specifically zoned for a high-rise tower. Smith and Associates will market the waterfront units, Curts Gaines Hall Jones will lend their architectural expertise.

The Heights

Where: Tampa Heights along the Hillsborough River
Part of an $820 million investment, this 43-acre mixed-use development will include apartments, offices and dining just north of downtown Tampa along the Hillsborough River. Developed by Adam Harden and Chas Bruck of Soho Capital, the project offers a potential northern hub of the Tampa Riverwalk boardwalk. Central to the project is turning the 106-year-old brick warehouse known as the Tampa Armature Works into a 22,000-square-foot open market hall.

ONE St. Petersburg

Where: Downtown St. Petersburg, Central Avenue between 2nd and 1st Street
United Landmark Associates is pleased to be handling the marketing for ONE St. Petersburg. Now under construction, the 41-story tower will be the tallest building in downtown and among the tallest on Florida’s West Coast once completed. The landmark building features 253 luxury residences, a premier hotel, along with world-class shopping, dining and amenities downstairs. ONE St. Petersburg is being developed by The Kolter Group and Smith & Associates is handling sales. Their Sales Gallery is located at 330 Beach Drive in Downtown St. Petersburg.
