Tampa Bay is having a moment. It’s not just the “Champa Bay” moniker following 2020′s Lightning World Cup win or Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Super Bowl LV champion title—the reimagining of the Bay Area has been years in the making and is now reaching a pivotal point. Buyers from across the state and nation have taken note, enticed by the idyllic waterfront, year-round Florida sun, world-class dining, and attractions and, finally, new luxury residential concepts.
Representing a major step forward for Tampa Bay’s transformation is the arrival of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Tampa (The Residences). The initial debut of the boutique tower—the first for the iconic hospitality brand in the region—will showcase 89 units and 12 villas that artfully blend high design, immaculate service, and a wellness-forward living experience to create Central Florida’s most desirable address. “Tampa is emerging as a vibrant, next-generation city,” said Michael Hammon, Senior Vice President of Related and lead developer on The Residences. “We’ve been following the area’s bloom over the last few years, and feel the market is now ready for a project of this caliber.”
The Residences are ideally located along the glittering waters of Hillsborough Bay, just a short walk or bike ride away from the lively downtown district and its many new offerings. Among the new high-profile projects expected to keep the city buzzing for years to come is Sparkman Wharf, a hub for live events, restaurants, and offices within the much-anticipated Water Street Tampa redevelopment. Other nearby favorites include the Tampa Riverwalk, a 2.6-mile waterfront pedestrian trail, and the open-air outdoor shopping neighborhood, Hyde Park Village.
Bringing elements of the Bay Area into the design and architecture of The Residences was paramount for the world-class development team, made up by developers Related Group, designers Meyer Davis, architecture firm Arquitectonica and landscape architect Enzo Enea. Their joint vision is a love letter to the surrounding area. In addition to its curb appeal and unmatched interior style, The Residences offer a wealth of services and amenities worthy of the legendary Ritz-Carlton name.
Catering to their every whim, residents can take a private yoga class at the state-of-the-art wellness and fitness center, work out of the lavishly appointed business center, take a dip in the resort-style pool, or brush up on tennis skills at the regulation-size court. With over 12,000 square feet of amenity spaces, ranging from practical to extravagant, and 24/7 access to Ritz-Carlton’s devoted staff, residents are sure to find something to fulfill their personal passions.
In true Related fashion, the property is also outfitted with museum-quality art, with a hand-curated collection for both residents and the public to enjoy. Starting at $1.6 million, the residences are uniquely crafted to take advantage of the tower’s unparalleled location, with sprawling floor plans, soaring ceilings, full-height windows, oversized terraces and endless views of Hillsborough Bay and downtown Tampa.
