The other thing I have to say is that the apartments in the northeast corner of Harbour Island are a total waste of land. I hope the owner of those has long term plans to rip them down and put up some density (I doubt it will come soon, but it is logical to come later)

Nice pics. Thanks for sharing. First pic really shows that Tampa Tower will be dominat. Two blocks to the left (south) of the pink County Center. I think.

Those apartments (Harbour Walk and Harbour Place) went condo some years ago. They are there for good.

Personally I wish Davis Island could go more dense too.

Great Pics! It really makes downtown look baron though, other than the far west side. I guess that could be a good thing. It leaves pleanty of open land for new development. Hopefully the past has taught us well enough, that Tampa will do it right.

I wish some of those buildings in the last pick could be domilished and some nice towers, mostly offices be built on them. Like that orange building on the right, know hat the hotel is, but forgot the name, should be domolished as well as others

Thanks for the pix smiley, makes me want to go skydiving. DT Tampa and Channelside is going to look sweet when everything is done.

those pictures have given me a more accurate picture of Tampa than anything else I've seen to date.

Now more of people's comments make sense about it. Some really obvious things..

Trees.. quite a few of the more leafy big variety than I expected.. for some reason I excpected more palm trees everywhere.

Highways and Space.. definetely big highways coming in.. the dense part isn't really that dense.. lots of industrial space it appears all over the place. I can now see this downtown thats more work-oriented, and not very 'liveable'.. and with all the trees and outskirts.. I can see people probably live out there and commute all the time.

Cars.. yeah, looks car-oriented.

Its the lot just beyond the Marriot. The reason it looks sandy is the drought - it is sand, heh. Most high schools (sans Plant) don't have the resources to maintain a green lawn in such conditions.

Why not make this a Tampa photo thread i mean the other states/cities sub forums have them we should make one too for Tampa, St.Pete/Clearwater, Orlando, Miami, Jacksonville, and then the rest of florida. This way nobody needs to create threads to show pictures we just have one or a few official ones.
