It'll probably be another Related project similar to what they did in Channelside. There was an article not too long ago stating they were looking at other projects for downtown. They would have the pockets to pay more than the asking price. I wonder if there is anyway for the city to force a denser or project with more height? Zoning?
The city cannot force them to build anything of course but the city certainly has the power to only approve projects it sees fit for the area since this will probably need a zoning change.

I know someone is going to come along with this being better than parking lots, property owners rights, etc.. it just really sucks that right when we appear to be getting some momentum going, something like this comes along and slams on the brakes.
I too was excited when I first read the headline, I was hoping it would read something like this, "a developer with a long and proven track record is under contract to purchase the long vacant Denholtz property. The initial plans are to take advantage of the Riverwalk's ongoing popularity and property location. They will begin phase one with a 300' tower and develop the remaining four towers in phases as the market dictates. Each tower will maximize the height allowed under current zoning with the developer already voicing they will approach the city to negotiate increase in exchange for opening up park space for the residents and open to the public. The developers promise to work with the adjacent property owners and city leaders to enhance the neighborhood, tie in the neighborhood to the surrounding areas, and continue to work to integrate the InVision Plan for Tampa."
I'll keep dreaming...
The maximum height for that property is well in excess of 300', I would say around '500 at least with how north and west the property is.
