This $3 billion waterfront neighborhood will also include three hotels.

In late June, Strategic Property Partners (SPP) unveiled its vision for the nearly 13 acres of public space that will stretch across Water Street Tampa, a 50-acre waterfront redevelopment that is one of the largest such projects in the U.S. When it’s completed, Water Street Tampa will include an estimated nine million sf of new commercial, residential, hospitality, cultural, entertainment, education and retail uses, totaling more than $3 billion in private investment.
Infrastructure and roadway improvements for Tampa Water Street have been ongoing since the summer of 2016. (Stantec has coordinated this effort.)
The initial phase of vertical development, which encompasses 3.5 million sf across 11 individual projects, commenced with the April groundbreaking for a 519-key JW Marriott hotel that is scheduled to open in 2020. SPP is also renovating the 727-room Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina, and announced plans to bring Marriott’s luxury brand, EDITION, to Tampa with a 173-room hotel and 46 condominium units within a 26-story tower. EDITION is scheduled to open in the first half of 2021.
Once completed, more than 23,000 people are expected to live, work, dine, shop, and visit Water Street Tampa daily.
EDITION, a brand created through a partnership between Marriott International and Ian Schrager, targets customers looking for a boutique, individualized hotel experience.
The EDITION in Tampa is the first in that market designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, in collaboration with AOR Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates and interior design consultant Roman & Williams.
The JW’s amenities across six floors will include a full-service spa and fitness center, pool and rooftop lawn, and ground-floor restaurants and retail. The JW and Marriott Waterside—which are adjacent to each other and to the Tampa Convention Center—will offer a combined 150,000 sf of meeting and event spaces.
Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates is AOR on the JW Marriott and Marriott Waterside projects, and design architect on the JW.
