Master developer BTI Partners announced today that construction is now underway for Marina Pointe’s luxury condominiums as well as the 150-slip marina and impressive retail center for Westshore Marina District, South Tampa’s newest walkable waterfront community. Tampa Mayor Jane Castor, BTI Partners CEO Noah Breakstone and COO Kevin Mays, local dignitaries, and construction and retail partners celebrated the official groundbreaking ceremony on Feb. 27, 2020.
Plaza Construction is the construction manager for the project. Prior to the formal groundbreaking, preliminary marina and site work commenced in late 2019. Initial tower move-in is anticipated to take place 24 months from groundbreaking, and the retail component will begin delivery in the first quarter of 2021.
The first tower will feature 113 condos and 7 townhomes overlooking a deepwater marina, the largest currently under construction on Florida’s West Coast, which provides immediate access to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Marina Landings places Tampa’s finest in-town, on-the-water lifestyle just moments from residents’ doorsteps, including Cru Cellars wine bar and shop, Duckweed Urban Market boutique grocery, DRNK Coffee Shop + QWENCH Juice Bar, Crave Spa, Salon Color Bar, Sand Surf Co and more. A newly announced boat-up dining destination, Paloma, will also be a short stroll away from the condominiums via a waterfront promenade.
“We are thrilled to officially break ground on this one-of-a-kind project and look forward to seeing Marina Pointe and the Westshore Marina District come to life over the next 24 months,” said Kevin Mays, Chief Operating Officer of BTI Partners. “Marina Pointe and the Westshore Marina District represent an unparalleled residential experience here in Tampa, incorporating luxury condominiums, boat slips and boutique shopping, dining and retail services all in the heart of a walkable coastal neighborhood.”
Marina Pointe is the one and only new marina-front development under construction in Tampa Bay, with prices currently ranging from the mid-$700,000s to the $2,000,000s. Each contemporary, flow- through floorplan features floor-to-ceiling glass walls and windows with breathtaking views of the bay and city, as well as premium European-style cabinetry, world-class Sub-Zero and Wolf kitchen appliances, spa-like Owner’s Suites and much more.
Residents will enjoy exclusive amenities such as an elevated pool deck, world-class fitness center, and private club outfitted with its own bar, catering kitchen and gracious dining and entertaining room. The ideal location at the intersection of Gandy and South West Shore Boulevards places residents a few moments away from the vibrant downtowns of both Tampa and St. Petersburg.
“Plaza is known for building unique and distinctive waterfront properties in South Florida and proudly adds Marina Pointe to its award-winning construction portfolio,” adds Todd Fultz, Managing Director, Plaza Construction Central Florida Office. “Marina Pointe’s modern style and contemporary floor plan will bring vibrancy to residential living in South Tampa.”
