my photo


Seaport Channelside will become a cornerstone in the redevelopment of the northern end of the Channel District and contribute to the fast-paced urban renaissance of Tampa’s Downtown Channelside.

The development plan embraces an urban, high-density, mixed-use development that includes approximately 422 luxury residences on five floors, storage and 2,146 sq. ft. neighborhood retail/professional office space. Design includes attached structured parking for approximately 692 cars located in the center of the development that will be hidden from view. Additional parking is located along the perimeter of the development as well. Available residences will include one, two and three bedrooms and range in size from approximately 717 sq. ft. to 2,294 sq. ft.

The parking garage has been integrated within the center of the development to achieve several goals. First and foremost, the design incorporates a “speed ramp” that will allow a resident quick ingress/egress to his/her respective floor. Secondly, once a resident has entered his/her floor of the parking garage, he/she will be able to park and walk directly into the corridor providing access to the apartment home (no elevators).

florida probably has the same percent of failed projects as any other part of the country over the past twenty years. Sure weve seen a lot projects go up, but weve also seen alot fail as well. ie Trump Tower and sixten franklin, just to name a few.

im sure dubia even gets alot of failed projects

That's Aqualea going up on Clearwater. I think it will house a Hyatt (?) and condos in two towers.


Nice pics man... You should post some of those pics of yours over at the Tampa forum on skyscrapercity. I know that a good number of the Tampa members there just don't get over here much, and won't see them otherwise.

Trump Tower in the News Again

TAMPA - SimDag chief executive Frank Dagostino said Thursday that the company is "days away" from obtaining financing to build the stalled 52-story Trump Tower Tampa. Meanwhile, lawsuits between the developer and the source of the tower's name are moving forward in court.

SimDag, which has tried for three years to get financing for the tower, filed a legal answer to Donald Trump's lawsuit and fought back with its own countersuit, according to documents filed in federal court in Tampa on Wednesday evening.

In its lawsuit, SimDag says Trump breached his contract with the developer by acknowledging to the public that he licensed his name to SimDag and was not involved in building the tower himself.

Dagostino said the countersuit was a necessary legal step but that both sides are willing to drop their respective lawsuits when and if the financing deal goes through.

Trump "agreed to drop the lawsuit at the closing table," Dagostino said. "Then we're friends again."

Trump's attorney in the case, Chris Griffin of Foley & Lardner in Tampa, said he couldn't comment on either lawsuit. Rhona Graff, a spokeswoman for the Trump Organization, said she couldn't comment on the case either.

SimDag told buyers in October that it was close to getting financing from a New York hedge fund but that the fund would not move forward unless Trump dropped his lawsuit against the company. Another stipulation was that SimDag get buyers to sign new two-year contracts.

Dagostino said Thursday that he had $70 million in new contracts and hoped to have about $80 million in contracts before closing on the loan. The company originally had $137 million in signed purchase contracts, he said.

"Buyers have responded wonderfully," Dagostino said. "The tower will happen. And it's got to be Trump Tower. It can't be Frank Tower."

Trump filed suit in May, saying SimDag breached its contract by not starting construction on time and by failing to make monthly payments to Trump, as stated in the $2.8 million licensing agreement. The agreement also stipulated that Trump would get a 50 percent cut of profits from the sale of luxury condominium units planned for the project.

Attorneys for SimDag and Trump have jointly asked for - and received - two extensions for the filing of SimDag's legal answer. In November, U.S. District Judge James Whittemore said he would not approve another extension.

If the two parties did not reach an agreement by Jan. 2, the judge said, he expected them to move forward with the lawsuit.

That gave SimDag no choice but to defend itself in court, Dagostino said, stressing that Trump said he won't drop his lawsuit until the financing for the tower is in place.

Trump Tower Tampa was announced in January 2005. It is planned for riverfront property along Ashley Drive in downtown Tampa.

Trump filed his own legal documents Wednesday, seeking to drop two of SimDag's original partners from his lawsuit.

Construction Contract Awarded for Tampa Bay History Center

The Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners voted today to approve an agreement with Walbridge Aldinger Company for construction of the Tampa Bay History Center for $19,476,526.00, which will have state-of-the-art energy saving features. The Commission also approved an agreement with the History Center in which the Center will provide $4.5 million in privately-raised funding for additional exhibit space and sustainable design elements.

“This has been a long road, and great leadership by the History Center Board and citizens has made me and others a believer in the project,” said Commission Chairman Jim Norman. “They’ve rolled up their sleeves to come up with private funding and have a solid business plan.”

“The signing of this contract exemplifies the value of partnering public and private interests to enable major museum initiatives,” said C.J. Roberts, president and CEO of the Tampa Bay History Center. “There is tremendous enthusiasm and support for the new museum in this community.”

The Commission is a key partner in this project, contributing $17 million for construction of the facility. The new 60,000-square-foot museum will be the first Hillsborough County-owned “green”, LEED-certified building and will be located on a 2.5 acre tract in Cotanchobee-Ft. Brooke Park. This site, adjacent to the St. Pete Times Forum, was secured by the City of Tampa through a grant from the Florida Communities Trust.

When the History Center went before the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners in 1998 to ask for $17 million in CIT funds, it pledged to present a sound business plan and to raise a permanent endowment of at least $11 million from private donors. Since agreements were formally signed in 2004, the private initiative has evolved into an even more substantial capital campaign, with a current goal of raising nearly $32 million, which the Center is on its way to securing.

The facility is scheduled for completion in December 2008.

Walbridge Aldinger, one of the top 50 construction organizations in the country, joins museum architect E. Verner Johnson & Associates and noted exhibit designers Christopher Chadbourne & Associates to complete the team for the delivery of the long-awaited regional history museum.

the site is located on prime real estate. The location is sandwiched between the newer "Parkside of One Bayshore" and "345 Bayshore Boulevard
". which are 17 and 22 stories respectfully

Wow. I must've missed that somehow. I drive down Bayshore every evening. I'll have to look next time. I actually liked those apartments. They had an old Tampa look to them. Can't wait to see the new tower, though.

I doubt that Crescent is breaking ground any time soon on that project. They got the zoning approved some time ago for 19 and 8 story towers, and there is way too much condo stock available elsewhere on Bayshore, Harbour Island and DT.


btw, very glad to see the apartments go, and looking forward to their replacement. The apartments closely resembled well kept public housing, and were an eyesore on classy Bayshore Blvd imo.

Beautiful Pictures

Wow these are some beautiful projects that are underway. Personally I hope if any of these projects go through to completion it is the trump tower. That would really be a nice building. I also know that anything donald trump puts his name on is of incredibly high quality.

The sage condos are also very high tech and modern looking. Definite thumbs up to the designer who put those together.
