TAMPA | Venu | 600ft | 50 fl | App

VENU

Video Proposal



www.venutampa.com
  • 215 units prices range from $400,000-$3,000,000, and size 900 to 4000 square feet
  • 50 stories. ~600 ft. and Approved by the City of Tampa.
  • Will have a lobby chandiler by Dale Chihuhly, along with 1000 sq ft. gallery
  • Construction to begin Mid '07
  • Will build portion of riverwalk along with 3200 sq. feet of retail

As soon as information comes in, it'll be posted here as well as in the Tampa forum. Expect lots of updates -we're excited about this one. A sales gallery has opened and advertising has begun. The unit cost is a bit high, but the project is quite attractive so it's difficult to see how the community will react sales wise.

Maxim98 -

Where did you get the 550' figure ? In the video it looks considerably taller than that.

Really good video. Great for Tampa. Nice design too. Tampa is having a bit of a boom lately.

From the Tampa update page. I'm assuming Jason guestimated the height.. for some reason, the "~" that was included in the Tampa forum didn't translate when I made the topic... heh.

Anyway, it has to be close to 600', since it seems significantly taller than Bank of America.

That's definately my impression. Although developers have certainly been known to exaggerate.

Trump Tower Tampa would still probably be taller at about 181m. Bank of America is 176m, and you can see in the video that Venu is slightly taller than it. It's a tough call. Both proposals should still trump anything existing.

I've just watched the video and yes,the video is fantastic,but I still don't like the building.That modernist facade you see in the first rendering ruins the entire building.It seems like they have made a new building next to an old one.
