Roxanne Amoroso, the Bank of America senior vice president who has led the efforts to finance and build the high-profile, 40-acre-plus redevelopment project known as Encore in Tampa, has stepped down from the bank.
Amoroso resigned earlier this week but a call to Bank of America seeking details was not returned Friday evening.
Encore, between downtown Tampa and Ybor City, includes plans for housing, commercial buildings, space for a possible hotel and supermarket, and solar power and chilled water cooling systems for the buildings. Encore is a joint project between Bank of America and the Tampa Housing Authority.
On June 8, at an Urban Land Institute summit conference in St. Petersburg, Amoroso and housing authority CEO Jerome Ryans received a "Better Community" annual award for Encore from the smart growth organization 1000 Friends of Florida.
