Riverwalk Place – arguably Tampa’s showiest new residential development – had its grand opening last month. Developers Feldman Equities, LLC and Two Roads Development said it was a truly memorable occasion. Architect Shamim Ahmadzadegan, of Gensler, and celebrity interior designer Thom Filicia – from the original “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” – shared their design inspirations. Mayor Bob Buckhorn discussed the importance of Riverwalk Place to Downtown Tampa’s bright future, saying: “The future Riverwalk Place will change the skyline of Tampa and connect new restaurant, retail and residential options to our beautiful Tampa Riverwalk.”
Living in luxury at what is soon to be the tallest building on the west coast of Florida won’t come cheap – starting prices begin in the $600,000s for smaller “live/work” units and go up to $1.75 million for the largest non-penthouse floor plan.
For those seeking more “private urban living”, there’s Elevé 61. This recently approved condo tower will hold just 61 residences, with two three-bedroom units on each floor and no shared walls between the two. Developers at Mercury Advisors have announced that every residence will have floor-to-ceiling glass for views around downtown and Ybor City. Residents will be able to make use of indoor-outdoor fitness and social spaces. Elevé 61 will be one of the tallest residential buildings in Tampa. One of its biggest selling points is its proximity to the Water Street Tampa development and Sparkman Wharf – the revamped Channelside Bay Plaza. Sales prices are expected to start in the $800,000s and construction is set to begin in early 2019.
