Thought I would start up a new thread to discuss future plans for Hyde Park Village. Here's a TBO.com article highlighting a few possible changes to come.

The master plan is still very much a work in progress, but the developer hoping to remake Hyde Park Village is ready to talk about a few of the biggest changes they envision. And at least one part of the plan involves likely taking down one of the emptier and less appealing buildings in the site and constructing a new one.

This little retail area needs some life to it, maybe just a simple Irish bar or some other high-end casual place like 717 South around the corner. It just feels depressing when you walk around there.

i actually like walking around there and i believe irish 31 is around that area as well as Piquaint and Timpanos (which i like both). If they redo that empty section like they say they will, making it a "jewel of a building" this retail area will be fine.

Agreed. And until different factors started to affect HPV's long-term viability in the mid/late 90s, things seemed to be pretty good. After that, most everything has gone south.

First look at early redevelopment plans for Hyde Park Village
Oct 14, 2014, 11:15am EDT UPDATED: Oct 14, 2014, 11:30am EDT

The developers of Hyde Park Village have unveiled a preliminary vision for a major renovation to the property.

WS Development, based in Boston, has been meeting with neighborhood associations that surround the shopping and entertainment district in South Tampa. WS closed on the property in September 2013, and has spent a large part of the last year working with the public and city officials, said Lou Masiello, vice president of development.
In a best case scenario, he said, plans would be submitted to the city in one to two months, and construction would begin in the second quarter of 2015 and be wrapped up by the holiday shopping season.

Hyde Park Village has signed on a mix of new retailers that will help the developer's mission to define the South Tampa shopping district as a "special and unique place."

Kitchen goods store Sur La Table, Tampa home design boutique Blue Moon Trading Co. and stationery store Paper Source have all signed leases in Hyde Park Village and will open in 2015, said Lou Masiello, vice president of development for Boston-based WS Development, which owns the property.
Here's who's going where:

Hyde Park Village signs new local restaurant On Swann
Jan 26, 2015, 2:57pm EST

The reinvention of Hyde Park Village rolls on, with the developers signing another new tenant: On Swann, a local restaurant.
On Swann will take over the Wells Fargo space on the corner of West Swann and South Oregon avenues, the property's ownership, Boston-based WS Development, said Monday.

It is slated to open in 2015. The restaurant is the brainchild of Cafe Ponte and Cordon Bleu chef, Chris Ponte, former Bonefish Grill President John Cooper and former Outback Steakhouse executive Trudy Cooper. It will emphasize local, seasonal dishes.

WS is planning a major renovation of Hyde Park Village that will renovate the property's facades and demolish and rebuild one of the buildings. Overhauling the South Tampa shopping district could have a ripple effect well beyond the property's boundaries.

It's looking more and more like this shopping center finally has an owner that is putting it's money where it's mouth is. Great to see.

Not sure I like it from the renderings. Any reason why they seem to be getting rid of the classic red brick historic design? This looks like a bland suburban mall with a cookie-cutter bank.

Sad to see the brick facade go but sadly this is much more in line with what the masses will see as upscale and with the times. Not a huge fan of the aesthetic but I can see this turning the development around and restoring it to it's former vaunted socioeconomic glory.

Hyde Park Village rendering

If you're the type who still sends handwritten notes, mark June 19 on your calendar.

That's when Paper Source will open in Hyde Park Village, marking the stationery retailer's third Florida location. Its other stores are in Naples and West Palm Beach.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.

It is taking over the former Pink Petticoat space, about 2,700 square feet, at 714 South Village Circle.

The Chicago-based retailer sells luxury papers, custom invitations, gifts, wrapping paper and greeting cards. Hyde Park Village announced Paper Source had signed a lease in January.

First look at bartaco in Hyde Park Village
Jul 8, 2015, 7:10am EDT

Bartaco in Hyde Park Village take a low-key approach to signage.

With no advance hype, the much-anticipated bartaco in Hyde Park Village debuted Tuesday night.
Although management characterized it as a "soft" opening, the 240-capacity bar/restaurant entertained a sizable crowd in the early evening.

The food: upscale street-style (tacos, bowls, et al). The vibe: coastal Mexican (if Jimmy Buffett had a mariachi band) with a hint of the Hamptons. Emphasis on well-crafted cocktails.
