Reminds me of Beach Walk on Clearwater beach. Even though many here are opposed to the general idea of cars and roads being a priority, I sort of feel like this is a nice addition to that side of the river.

The buildings being so close to the river, there really isn't any views being ruined by the road way, and it actually looks great they way you have laid this all out.

Very nice use of land going to waste...


Haha, I did a sketch out of a concept sort of like this several years ago... Except my idea relocated the parking garage to the other side of Blake near the hellhole highway, and would then relocate all of the ball fields for all three schools on the riverfront, to an inland common/shared youth sports facility as part of the West River redevelopment. Redevelop all of the riverfront property with whatever the market will bear, with a riverwalk from Rick's to Bayshore.

^^ you missed the point. It is about the city of Tampa using its waterfront in stupid ways.

That high school takes up a huge amount of land ON THE RIVER> baseball fields too. I don't know the footage but it looks like a 1/4 mile at least of riverfront property for a high school. Move school over 1000 ft and redevelop this land.
