MetWest International

An eco-sensitive, pedestrian-friendly space in an urban environment

Tampa, Florida

MetWest’s premium urban site was designed to be ecofriendly and pedestrian friendly by leveraging the setting’s natural shape and mature trees to produce a highly functional, sustainable design on a compact site.

Located in Tampa’s Westshore area, near Tampa International Airport, MetWest is a premier mixed-use development featuring specialty restaurants, retail, and Class A office space, with plans for a future hotel and residential development. Situated on a tight site with mature trees, Stantec overcame many engineering challenges in order to respect and preserve the existing site. We provided a comprehensive stormwater system and a site design that preserved an abundance of existing trees.

We wanted to create a place where people could easily navigate the mixed-use complex or find a quiet spot to relax and enjoy the landscaped view. Our engineers worked in concert with our landscape architects to facilitate pedestrian circulation with a focus on upgraded crosswalks and a high level of connectivity throughout the site. Main vehicular traffic patterns are pushed to the perimeter of the site, allowing the retail and restaurant core to provide a dynamic pedestrian environment.
