On Tuesday, Bob Buckhorn, the Tampa mayor, unveiled our team's ambitious plan to transform an all-but-forgotten park on the edge of downtown Tampa into a destination. The plan for the 23-acre Julian B. Lane park on the west bank of the Hillsborough River includes a 16,250 sf "river center" with panoramic views, a boathouse, and opening up views to the river and downtown. Even Susan Lane, former Mayor Julian B. Lane's daughter, supports the plan. Ultimately, the park is just one piece of a larger vision for the West Tampa area, and can act as a catalyst for positive change. Read the article in the Tampa Bay Times here and the Tampa Bay Business Journal here.

Last week we went out to Jersey City, NJ for our pre-construction kick-off meeting. Construction will begin soon on both the streetscape and the roof terraces for the new hotel and residential building along Columbus Drive. We were lucky to get out there on a beautiful day and enjoy the great views from the terrace. Looking forward to construction!
