THE TAMPA EDITION RISES TO FULL HEIGHT IN WATER STREET TAMPA
Sweeping Views Now Available from City’s First Five-Star Hotel and Branded Residences
TAMPA, FL (February 8, 2021) – The Tampa EDITION, the city’s first five-star hotel and branded residences, is celebrating its official topping out, with the tower reaching its full height of 26 stories. Masterminded and created by Ian Schrager in partnership with Marriott International, and developed by preeminent Tampa-based real estate development firm Strategic Property Partners (“SPP”), The Tampa EDITION offers 37 private residences and a 172-room hotel in Water Street Tampa. Built around wellness, connectivity, walkability and sustainability, Water Street Tampa places residents in the heart of a balanced urban experience offering sparkling waterfront views, publicly-accessible green space and world-class dining, shopping, cultural attractions, entertainment venues, residences and offices. The hotel and residences are slated to open later this year.
“Not often have I had the opportunity to work on a project that will completely transform the very center and heartbeat of a great city like Tampa, and make it even greater,” said Ian Schrager. “I call it urban expansion, rather than urban renewal. Water Street Tampa includes new hotels, retail, dining, workplace and residential offerings, at a scale that has the potential to make Tampa a 24-hour international gateway city for all of central and southern Florida, one of the fastest growing states in the country!”
“With a level of service and design never before available in Tampa, The Tampa EDITION is unlike any other hotel and residential development in this city’s history,” said Charlie Rollins, Executive Vice President of Construction and Development for SPP. “Seeing the building rise on the Tampa skyline has been extremely exciting, especially coupled with the incredible response the development has received from the market since launching sales just a few weeks ago. We look forward to welcoming the first residents and hotel guests later this year and to sharing this new hospitality experience with Tampa.”
In realizing the hotel and residences, Schrager and SPP have collaborated with a national design team including architecture firm Morris Adjmi Architects and design firm Roman and Williams to introduce a level of sophistication unparalleled in Tampa, and achieve a new standard of living that is setting the course for the city’s ambitious future. The hotel and residences feature a rooftop terrace with pool, expansive spa, fitness center, ground-floor retail space and seven dynamic food and beverage experiences. This set of beautifully designed and carefully considered social and amenity spaces characterize Schrager’s universally recognizable aesthetic and offers guests and residents Schrager’s most fully realized vision to date of effortless living.
Crowning the top 15 floors of the tower, the residences embrace seamless indoor-outdoor living with private wraparound terraces, ceilings reaching up to 10-feet high and floor-to-ceiling windows offering unparalleled views of Hillsborough Bay and Downtown Tampa. Top-of-the-line finishes and appliances are present throughout, including Polaris White marble countertops and backsplashes, custom waterfall islands, integrated wine refrigerators and Gaggenau appliances in the kitchens alongside custom Roman and Williams-designed fixtures and luxurious freestanding Kaldewei steel enamel extra-deep soaking tubs in the owner’s baths. Residents of the development will enjoy a new genre of carefree living at The Tampa EDITION, which provides all the advantages of private ownership complemented by the service, amenities and entertainment of a luxury hotel. A full suite of private amenities and dedicated residential services programmed by The EDITION include a fitness center, social kitchen and lounge with private balcony,
dedicated residential lobby, residents’ valet, 24/7 attended residential front desk, Director of Residences, private residents’ elevators and secure garage parking with electric car charging available.
Since launching sales in late 2020, the development’s 37 condominiums have continued to resonate with diverse local and national buyers who are drawn to the unprecedented combination of five-star service, quality design and sweeping waterfront views in the world’s first anticipated WELL district. Several professional athletes, including players for Tampa’s NFL and NHL teams, have toured the development’s sales gallery, impressed by the residences’ comprehensive lifestyle services and proximity to Amalie Arena.
Construction on The Tampa EDITION is being handled by Suffolk Construction, one of the Southeast’s premier construction companies.
“The Tampa EDITION is unlike any property in the market, and Suffolk is thrilled to partner with SPP to bring the vision to life,” said Suffolk’s General Manager Josh Christensen. “Alongside our trade partners, our team has been focused on delivering the highest level of quality for this incredible project.”
Pricing for The Residences at The Tampa EDITION begins at $2 million and occupancy will commence later this year. Smith & Associates, a Tampa-based real estate brokerage company, is the exclusive sales agent for the development.
