Tampa receives four proposals to renovate historic Water Works Building

TAMPA — Four groups look at the city's historic Water Works Building in Tampa Heights and see a promising site for a cafe or riverfront restaurant.

The city said Monday it has received proposals for the site at 1804 N Highland Ave. from:

• Richard Gonzmart of the Columbia Restaurant and Bill Rain of Metro Bay Real Estate.

• Ella's Americana Folk Art Café, led by Melissa and Don Deming, who envision a restaurant and a multiphased development that could include space for an art gallery or art market.

• The David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts and the Beck Group.

• Water Works Enterprises led by Darren Booth, who was development manager of the once-ambitious project known as the Heights. This proposal calls for a coffee shop, riverwalk cafe, tapas bar, bar and grill and catered event venue.

Mayor Bob Buckhorn is likely to decide on a proposal soon.
