Buckhorn suggested that the site would be suited for a 6 to 8 story apartment considering the views, but that is at least a floor or more taller than what is envisioned in the renderings we have seen so far.

Makes me wonder how concrete the plans are or if Buckhorn is just wishing to see an 8 story building there. I would be happy if the renderings were merely conceptional in scale and the city and THA weren't so strict on the height and size of some of the blocks.

I'd love to see in the 12-15 floor range on this site but that's probably a little ambitious. This area has great potential it just needs to get rid of the negative public perception.

Editorial: Tampa clears path for next downtown community
Friday, May 12, 2017 4:46pm

The look and economics of Tampa's urban core enter a new era this month, as the Tampa Housing Authority begins to tear down North Boulevard Homes, the first phase of replacing an aged public housing project with an entirely new urban setting of apartments, homes, shops, parks and restaurants. The buildout will take years, and the city still has to settle many details that will shape the character of this community. But this effort could reverse nearly a half-century of blight, and it promises to create a more affordable environment for those eager to experience downtown living.

The shuttered complex will be demolished in two phases, part of a broader effort by the city to remake 120 acres on the west side of the Hillsborough River. The cinder block, World War II-era public housing project fronts the commercial core of the West River district. Officials expect to convert this area into a walkable neighborhood of shaded streets, apartments, restaurants and shops sloping toward the river and new public parks. Already the city is remaking Riverfront Park, several blocks to the east, which will serve as West River's central outdoor space.

Tampa Housing Authority to stick with under-investigation Related Group for now
Christopher O'DonnellChristopher O'Donnell, Times Staff Writer

TAMPA — Federal authorities may be investigating the Related Group, but the South Florida company remains the developer of choice for the Tampa Housing Authority as it moves ahead with a major West River urban renewal project.

Just days after the Miami Herald reported that federal agents are scrutinizing the finances of a Related affordable housing project in South Florida, the Housing Authority's governing board voted unanimously Wednesday to partner with the Miami-based firm on the renovation of Mary Bethune High Rise Apartments, an eight-story senior residential tower just west of downtown Tampa.

The rehabilitation of the 150-unit Mary Bethune, which is now empty, could begin in the first quarter of 2018, Moore said. Built in 1966, it will cost an estimated $70,000 per unit to bring it up to date.
