DOWNTOWN TAMPA | Park Tower Renovation



Quote:
Park Tower building in downtown Tampa to be upgraded

Formerly known as the Lykes Building at 400 N. Tampa St., the 36-story building will undergo a multi-million-dollar renovation which is expected to be completed by early 2018, according to a press release...

...Soon the public will notice changes in the 475,000-square-foot building's facade. Park Tower will be painted a lighter color, a new entrance will be constructed and it will feature a "light box" that will illuminate the office tower against Tampa's Riverfront skyline. Building amenities will also be upgraded, including a renovation of the lobby. Other renovations include adding a cafe to the lobby, a 6th floor "chill zone" tenant lounge, a new fitness center and yoga room with spin bikes, new shared tenant conference rooms and an updated parking garage.

The rendering is so heavily distorted in coloring and shape it's tough to determine what the final product will look like.

I work in the Rivergate Tower and my office looks East, so the Park Tower dominates my view. I get pretty tired of looking at the faded brown facade... Glad to hear the tower is getting some love.

one of the ugliest towers in DT in my opinion. So this is a welcomed changed. From the rendering... which really you cant make out much, it looks like it will be a nice update. Im wondering what the extent of exterior changes will come out to.
