A former industrial port warehouse area, the Channel District in Tampa is coming back to life as a vibrant retail, residential, and entertainment destination. To help manage the district’s transformation, Stantec created a strategic action plan and provided design services to implement the planning recommendations.
Our land planners analyzed the underutilized 200 acre community redevelopment area to understand the market forces at work. They applied that knowledge to guide the development and proactively plan for the new design, buildings, and infrastructure. The concept was to create a unique urban, mixed-use, transit-oriented neighborhood reflecting the smart planning concept of putting residences near job centers.
We provided design services that range from the creation of a district-wide stormwater management system utilizing subsurface vaults, to roadway improvements, streetscaping, and urban park design.
With our Tampa office just minutes away, we’ve been watching this area come to life in our own backyard. A welcome sight based on a solid plan.
