TAMPA — For the first time in decades, if ever, people are now living on the 52 acres near the Gandy Bridge that make up the new Westshore Marina District.

Residents have moved into apartments built by the Related Group, center on the water, and Bainbridge, northeast of the traffic circle. Several of WCI Communities' townhomes have been sold and are ready for occupancy.

The district's master developer, BTI Partners, has 40 units of its 340-unit Marina Pointe condominium project under contract at an average sale price of $1.3 million. Those condos will face Tampa Bay. BTI also recently obtained permits for a marina and a 25-year lease on submerged lands.

Based in South Florida, BTI acquired the land after the original developer lost it during the 2000s financial crash.
