entrepreneur hopes his new location helps other budding businesses do the same.

Gianfilippo said expanding Station House to Tampa was always in his long-term plans. Station House St. Petersburg opened on Central Avenue downtown about two years ago, mirroring large shared social and working spaces in New York City and Chicago.

Station House has public meeting space, a coffee bar, ramen restaurant and five floors of co-working and conference spaces that house dozens of businesses.

Below the new Station House, Hyde Park Village will have 30,000 square feet worth of retail and restaurant space near the corner of S Dakota Avenue and Snow Avenue.

WS Development, the 300,000-square-foot retail village's owner, already tore down an old building in the plot of land, or "H block," last year.

Gianfilippo said the new Station House's aesthetic will match the feel of Hyde Park Village's clean white-washed brick, rather than the rustic feel inside the old-space-turned-new St. Pete building.

Hyde Park Village does has traditional office spaces already, but Station House prides itself as being an epicenter for creative tech and businesses professionals seeking a flexible and contemporary environment.

"Station House embodies everything we were hoping to bring to the Village," WS Development COO Samantha Perry David said in a news release. "It will not only be a stunningly beautiful space but one which is full of energy and designed as a true hub for the community."

Hyde Park Village's "beautification project" began in 2015 and is slated to be complete in 2019, when the "H block" opens for business.

"I'm excited to see who they bring in to go below us," Gianfilippo said.
