TAMPA — Cru Cellars wine bar is the latest retailer to announce it will open a location in the Westshore Marina District, developer BTI Partners announced Wednesday.

Cru will offer its large wine selection alongside charcuterie boards, cocktails, a lunch menu, coffee and pastries in a 2,400 square-foot space. It will be the city's third Cru after its South Tampa location and counter at the Armature Works food hall. The wine bar is planned to open in the summer of 2020.

BTI has had the development at the intersection of Gandy and Westshore boulevards in the works since 2014. The mixed-use project calls for shops, restaurants and more than 1,700 residential units.

Earlier this summer, BTI announced DRNK coffee + tea and QWENCH, a juice bar, signed a lease within the district. Boutique grocer Duckweed Urban Market, Crave Spa and Salon Color Bar also plan to open in the hub.

The development takes in 52 acres and some of its condo and apartment complexes have already moved in tenants.
