Amenities include 6,200 sq. ft. of ground-floor retail space and a parking garage with 463 spaces. It also has one of the highest resort-style swimming pools in Miami, on the 50th-floor deck. Other amenities include a billiards room, lounge, business center and fitness complex with an outdoor yoga area. Construction began in mid 2015.
New Renderings of Tallest Building on Florida’s West Coast
New renderings of what will be the tallest building on Florida’s west coast at 50-plus stories show a glassy, stylish tower designed by Gensler to evoke a ship’s sail, Tampa Bay Times reported. Being developed by Two Roads Development of West Palm Beach, Florida, and Feldman Equities, the mixed-use Riverwalk Place at Ashland Drive and Whiting Street in Tampa will have shops and restaurants fronting the popular promenade from which the development gets its name. On the drawing boards are offices, a 20th-floor sky deck and condos starting at US$600,000. Construction is expected to start in 2019. Sales started in September, but the condo-to-office ratio will depend on how sales go.
