Developers Unveil Design for Tampa’s Future Tallest

Developers have unveiled plans for Riverwalk Place, a mixed-use tower that, if built as planned, will be Tampa’s tallest building, the Tampa Bay Times reported in April. The US$350-million shimmering glass tower will hold offices, retail space and about 240 condominiums within its 50-plus stories. It would sit on a site once promoted as the location for Trump Tower, a project that never materialized. Developers Feldman Equities of Tampa and Two Roads Development, based in South Florida, are establishing a sales office, and, if all goes as hoped, will begin construction in 2019. Completion of the tower is expected to take about three years. The designer is the Gensler architectural firm, the projects of which include Shanghai Tower, the second-tallest building in the world.

Gensler’s design for Riverwalk Place includes a glass exterior with outwardly curving sides that give nearly every office and condo a water view. It features balconies wrapping almost all the way around the tower at the top, then less and less so on lower floors, which creates a sail-shaped 3D outline.
