The massive convention hotel in Water Street Tampa will feature a rooftop lounge on the 26th story, a ground-floor restaurant and a restaurant with indoor/outdoor seating on the sixth floor.
The 500-room hotel, named 10 Water Street, will be built on Old Water Street, across from the Marriott Tampa Waterside Hotel & Marina. Strategic Property Partners, the developer of Water Street Tampa, revealed design plans for the property on Wednesday.
The new hotel will be connected to the existing Marriott, SPP said, and include 126,000 square feet of meeting and event space. The hotel will feature a 30,000-square-foot-ballroom, which SPP says is the largest in the Tampa Bay region.
Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates are the architects on the project; Champalimaud will handle the interiors.
A major convention hotel has been a public part of SPP’s plans since late 2014, shortly after the group acquired the Marriott Waterside, also designed by architects NBWW, and received city approval to build a new hotel across the street. By building the hotel next to the Marriott — and the Tampa Convention Center — SPP is giving the city a better shot at landing bigger conventions and drawing more tourists to the urban core.
