Tampa is on the precipice of a bold transformation. More than 50 acres in the heart of downtown will become Water Street Tampa, a truly mixed-use neighborhood developed by Strategic Property Partners, LLC.

Water Street Tampa will create 2 million square feet of new office space, including downtown Tampa’s first new office towers in nearly 25 years.

Approximately 3,500 new rental and for-sale residences are planned to nearly double the number of housing units available within downtown Tampa.

Water Street Tampa is surrounded by existing cultural, entertainment, and community anchors including the Tampa Convention Center, Amalie Arena where the Tampa Bay Lightning play, Tampa Bay History Center, Florida Aquarium, and Tampa Riverwalk. The project will connect these community anchors to a network of new and enhanced public areas.

An active pedestrian experience is at the heart of the design – Water Street Tampa will add 1 million square feet of new retail, cultural, educational, and entertainment space at the street-level, as well as 12.9 acres of new and enhanced park and public gathering places.

Water Street Tampa will host two new hotels with over 650 new rooms, including the city’s first 5-star hotel. A $40 million renovation to the existing Marriott Waterside is also planned.

The University of South Florida will relocate the Morsani College of Medicine and Health Heart Institute to Water Street Tampa, opening to students in the fall of 2019.

Water Street Tampa will set a new standard for wellness and sustainability as the world’s first WELL-certified community under the WELL Community Standard.


Water Street Tampa is a vibrant vision for the future of our city and for the 23,000+ people who live, work, study, and visit Tampa Bay each day.
