Rezoning?

I wonder if they're are trying to push for a higher density at the same height? (maybe 60-75 units?)

I thought this project was already approved at 15 stories. Wonder why they would need rezoning....

^Because they want to do something that varies from what's approved.

If you didn't already know, the glass tower has a name "Aquatica".

Website is www.aquaticaonbayshore.com

Some floor plans can be viewed so hurry and sign up for your luxury condo.

This is the same tower that has been proposed for Bayshore and Bay to Bay right?

And as much as I love the name, I have to wonder what copyright/trademark restrictions that SeaWorld would have to that name (if such exist due to their water park having the same name, which I'm sure something does), and furthermore, if they would start throwing flags against the developer for infringement.

1) Why would you choose a name that sounds like a theme park

2) The legal name will probably be Aquatica on Bayshore or Aquatica Partners LLC etc.

The use of just Aquatica would be an abbreviation. There are a hundred or more coorporations listed on sunbiz.org with Aquatica *.

^haha. I took a quick glance at the same thing the other day (are there other buildings with the name Aquatica), but then I didn't post about it here, because got sidetracked checking out Puerto Rico. There's a condo there with the name Aquatica.

Interesting, the front page of TBO.com has an advertisement for pre-leasing at the Aquatica.. Does anyone think they will get enough contracts to start construction this year

Seems unlikely. They've been advertising this for a while, haven't they? Also, the rezoning request I mentioned last year never happened, so even if they were filing again today, it wouldn't be heard by Council until the end of the year.

Interesting to hear all the fuss about people loosing their parking place to go 'run, walk and ride bikes".

They can park and run for miles in the heat but if they have to park a block away on Macdill, it's too far?

Currently there is not a great place to park near that intersection, even a block away. I don't think runners or cyclists mind walking a block, but as the article states the city will have to build a place to park. If we had better mass transit we wouldn't need to build more parking, but as we all know, we don't. When I lived close to downtown, I ran along Bayshore but parked downtown if I had to park, but I was running 11+ miles.

One thing I do know is that area of Bayshore has the worst smell, not sure I would want to spend millions to live there, but I am glad to see another tower along Bayshore, just adds to the Bayshore skyline from a far.

Previously, the developer offered to build a slightly taller tower, which preserved plenty of greenspace on the site, as well as public parking in the garage.

The usual knee-jerk reactionary NIMBYs went on their typical ideological crusade, and howled and howled until the city pushed the developer to build the shittiest project conceivable, that will still turn a profit.

Now watch when it's built... The same incompetent morons who opposed a building which includes public parking, will now complain that there's no parking.

Not a big fan of the exterior look of this building. Too much glass.
Maybe the potential buyers fell in love with the floor plans.

My favorite part is how some folks apparently expected to get a free ride off of another property owner in perpetuity. The NIMBYs didn't want anything built, but also had no interest and/or ability to buy out the current property owner and turn the lot into a permanent public park. Not exactly a tenable position.

Bayshore Boulevard ( Park ) does deserve to have some better access to residents that do not live nearby.

Not sure I would want to see cars parked in small lots stationed along Bayshore but when you think about it, there are nothing but cars there on the road now.

Too bad the streetcar didn't run down Bayshore, that would be a great way to park DT and ride to any point along the way.
