Integrating a pedestrian-friendly network of landscaped streets, parks, and squares in Tampa

Strategic Property Partners (SPP) had a vision for 50+ acres of parking and warehouses it owned in downtown Tampa: create a sustainable, walkable urban district that would land Tampa on the list of cities with renaissance downtowns. Fusing amenities, culture, multiple uses, a new street system, and a memorable public realm, Water Street Tampa will emerge as a walkable new urban neighborhood and a nationally known destination.

Stantec played a key role in bringing SPP’s ambitious vision to life, starting with early planning, zoning, and infrastructure studies. We followed up with a deep dive into infrastructure planning. Our plan turns streets designed primarily for cars into a pedestrian-focused framework of landscaped streets, parks, and plazas designed to support a broad range of activities. The plan fills in this framework with 9,000,000 SF of condos, apartments, offices, unique shops, restaurants, and a medical school.

In addition to urban planning and design, we produced detailed civil infrastructure design and permitting for roadway realignment/reconstruction; stormwater, water, and sewers; a district chilled water/cooling network; and underground utility construction/relocation.
