Channel District Development

Recommended Posts

Hey,

Been milling around this site for awhile and figured I'd give everyone a small taste of what's going on in Tampa's Channel District. These photos were taken yesterday, January 7th, 2006. I tried to name them appropriately so that at the least Tampans could get a clear idea of where I was when I took the shots.

I also just realiized that The Grand Central project has been expanded to include an even taller complex called The Martin so I think that might be in some of my shots as well, although it didn't seem to be very far along.

Anyway, enjoy, and I'll update in a month or so.

110 North 11th Street turned out pretty good. I was interested in buying that building about 5 or 6 years ago to convert into lofts, but I thought the asking price was too steep. If I knew then, what I know now, I would have jumped on the opportunity.

Pretty nice looking. Is channelside an island and is it fairly expensive? Those street lamps are weird looking and they go a little overboard IMHO, but the lofts and soon to be density are attractive.

I dig those street lights... maybe my city will become a little more risky in our developing areas just outside of DT. Meridian street is a beautiful looking road in pictures.

Channelside is an older warehouse district just east of our CBD. It's not an island, although in some respects it appears that way (being between the Crosstown expressway and the Port of Tampa). It has the potential to be a real cneterpeice for downtaown Tampa. As far as the Meridian St lights are concerned, I think you'd change your mind if you were to see them in person....IMHO :D

The street lamps on meridian do look weird.. but when you take in the surroundings they're going to fit perfect. if all the construction taking place comes out looking like the plans then they'll fit in to the hip and funky style that channelside is going for. Once channelside is complete it's going to look great. I just wish prices were more affordable so I could live there. Maybe if those Seaboard apartments get build I can afford one of those... if they don't go condo from the get go.
