Block 3 will have great views of the river in both directions as well as the park.

This project looks exciting so far, I can't wait to see all these new areas when it's finished.

I just don't get it why they don't develop the blocks adjacent to the Armature Works Building first.

Glad to see this is finally getting going. I lived in Tampa back in '06 - '08 about a 1/2 mile east of the site on Central Ave - and they were talking about it then. Looks pretty good. It'll be nice to come down and visit the old neighborhood and see how things are going. I like the name "the Pearl" - but I just wish they'd claim it as their own and not mention being named after the Pearl district in Portland. Hope the rest of the Tampa Heights neighborhood is continuing to improve as well.

Brought our bikes over to rider the Riverwalk, parked near the Armature building.

I can see how this is going to be an awesome area to live and visit when completed.

The Rialto had an event with food trucks and the brewery was nice.

Took the Riverwalk all the way to Channelside, didn't realize the area by the Straz was still stairs, maybe we didn't see an alternate route?

Overall, very impressed with how Tampa is coming together.

Also took Cass back from the Channelside area, we need more dedicated bike lanes for sure.

Still a little rough connecting the dots on a bike, especially the areas of downtown that have not been touched in a while.

Crossing over to Channelside from the Riverwalk and beyond also wasn't great, I expect that will change over the next year or so.

If you hit the stairs by the fountain, you just needed to go an extra twenty feet and there is a switchback ramp.

If you continued on the sidewalk where the cars park you get to Tyler St., like you were leaving the Straz in a car, there is a crosswalk. The same crosswalk you used to cross after going up the stairs. You bypass the stairs covered in trees, where the homeless nap and pee.

To comment on the site plan, this looks very possible. Especially with the ease of access from 275, boulevard, downtown, etc. These vies will be great. Hope to get those floating slips in there too.

Tampa Heights development receives key approval
Jun 22, 2016, 7:52am EDT
Ashley Gurbal Kritzer

An $820 million mixed-use development on the Tampa Heights waterfront cleared a key hurdle on Tuesday.

Port Tampa Bay unanimously approved "the permit to extend the Riverwalk and seawall from Waterworks Park to the North Boulevard Bridge and for construction of a 24-slip marina and water taxi slip," developer Adam Harden, partner of SoHo Capital LLC, wrote in an email.

Views of downtown from The Heights will be adversely impacted by the I-275 widening, which is likely to make I-275 more than twice as tall than it currently is.

From ground level along the river from the Heights' parcel, everything under about 12-15 floors on the skyline will be cut off.

Funny how Gonzmart complaining about his impacted views from Ulele, which FDOT is incorporating into a new design alternative, means that the vastly larger and more valuable Heights project will be adversely impacted instead... Or in a 3rd design alternative, N Franklin and the taxpayers get extra screwed instead.

Quick question....if they are expanding the current roadway, how is TBX going to double the height of 275? Flyovers?

The Heights Market concept will be the first of its kind in Tampa Bay
Justine GriffinJustine Griffin, Times Staff Writer
Friday, July 29, 2016 12:19pm

When developers of the Heights set out to create something new on a 40-acre-plus plot along the Hillsborough River just north of downtown, they knew they wanted to do something no one in the bay area had seen before.

So they hit the road.

They studied some of the most famous and up-and-coming public markets around the country. They visited dozens of them: the historic Pike Place Market in Seattle. The Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia. Krog Street Market in Atlanta. Acme Feed & Seed in Nashville.

And that's how Adam Harden and Chas Bruck of Soho Capital, along with Tim Clemmons, principal of Mesh Architecture, came up with an unusual use for part of the historic brick Armature Works building, which will become the heart of the Heights district.

Maybe they're hoping the market justifies going denser/taller by the time they get there, whereas the ones on the edge buffering the development aren't getting taller.

Yeah I feel like the Armature Works and The Pearl alone will justify higher rents on the other lots. And that trend will continue as the lots fill in. By the time they get to the waterfront tower lots they'll probably be some of the most expensive rents in the Bay area.

An article on the first page says the 2nd phase they build will be hotel and office. So block 2 on the site plan and then either block 1 or 4 presumably. This will drive up rents for phase 3 which will probably be residential etc.

I don't think I've seen these renderings yet. Some of them on the source page we have, but not these I don't think?
