TAMPA — Feldman Equities and Two Roads Development recently revealed the first architectural plans for Riverwalk Place, a mixed-use building that, upon completion, will be the tallest tower on the west coast of Florida.
Designed by Gensler architectural firm, Riverwalk Place will rise more than 50 stories along Tampa’s downtown riverfront, with offices, luxury condominiums and restaurants. It will boast a sweeping, curved design reminiscent of the 127-story Shanghai Tower in China, another Gensler project.
According to a press release, the project's budget is $350 million; it will employ more than 50 people during construction. Riverwalk Place residences will be priced from $600,000 to more than $2 million.
“We are thrilled to show these designs to the Tampa community, and we are excited for Riverwalk Place to become an icon that Tampa will present to the world,” states Gensler architect Shamim Ahmadzadegan in the release. “From the outset, our goal was to do more than just design another tall building. We wanted the project to activate the Riverwalk, and contribute to the urban landscape of downtown Tampa.”
The tower will feature five floors of “live-work” units and 10 stories of office space, followed by at least 33 levels of luxury condominiums.
“This will be the first new office skyscraper built in downtown Tampa in 30 years, and the first ever mixed-use tower,” states Larry Feldman, president and CEO of Feldman Equities, in the release. “Riverwalk Place is a site like no other and will become the social hub of downtown."
