Tampa Approves Riverwalk Contract

Recommended Posts


Council members would like to see the riverwalk completed in time for the 2009 Super Bowl.

Council Approves Iorio's Choice To Design Downtown Riverwalk

It looks like they are finally on the ball with this. I'd like to see their design plans. Where exactly is the riverwalk going? From Channelside, through downtown, then to Tampa Heights? That seems pretty substantial.

Check out www.tampaheights.org & it will show renderings. There is a place on the river called "waterworks park". The river walk will be an awesome place to go roller blading or jogging, etc.

I'm eager to see what "bells and whistles" they're planning to add to this. I'd be happy with just a spacious, attractive and well-lit walkway, but I believe their intention is to add sights of interest and activities to make this a "destination" for DT Tampa.

How about some fountains? Unique landscaping? Public art?

Can't wait until new renderings are released.

I notice that the River Walk goes past the Convention Center. I guess that means when the Convention Center has an outdoor venue like the Boat Show , that section of the River Walk will need to be closed (or else people would be able to get in for free)

BTW, does anyone know if they are planning any Riverwalk side restaurants?

I think it would be cool if people could pull up to a restaurant (or Performing Arts Center) in their yacht and tie it off at a slip. It may sound very ostentatious, but IMO that's the sort of thing that adds to the uniqueness and class to a project like this.

I guess the good thing about the riverwalk is you won't need to worry about getting hit bay a car. I mean I think downtown is still pretty much a place where people can haul ass while driving and it's easy to get hit by a car. It's not very pedestrian friendly.
