I was devastated to see some of the shops shut down or demolished near channelside, right now it's a dead zone. Hopefully this project happens quick.

They really need to find a way to integrate a fast travel system between Ybor and Channelside to link up. Trolleys are cool, but not practical

Ground has broken on the J.W. Marriott.

Plans are for construction to start on another 9 buildings in the next year.

Hmmmmm.....parking will be hard to come by.

Another piece just announced - the remodel of Channelside Plaza into Sparkman Wharf. Smart upgrades abound in this plan, some of which will open in October: https://www.tampabay.com/news/busine...ices_170322184

So basically (over simplification mode) they are turning the SW corner into a park - were Tapps, Howl at the Moon, and Stumps Supper Club were at one time.

IMO, huge change in opening up the "plaza" to the river. That prior design sucked canal water.. (walking thru a TUNNEL to get to the plaza from the parking garage?? outrageously stupid)

I feel like it's missing a couple of attractions. Hopefully more to come

This is one very small development within Water Street. Aside from clearing the green space, it’s more of a cosmetic facelift to the existing building. And I get the sense that this is just Phase 1, whereas future plans might include clearing the whole site for something new. Early plans indicated that exact approach. So read this more as a temporary measure to inject some short-term life (October is coming fast) into this spot.
