Soaring above iconic Bayshore Boulevard is The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Tampa (The Residences) — the area’s newest luxury condominium establishing a new level of design and gracious living in Tampa Bay. Conceptualized by visionary developer Related Group — in partnership with internationally acclaimed architecture firm Arquitectonica, renowned designer Meyer Davis and globally recognized landscape architect Enzo Enea — The Residences is a luxuriously sophisticated oasis, where even the smallest details are lovingly crafted.

The surrounding coastal environment inspires every element of The Residences, with nature-inspired materials and colors transforming every exterior and interior detail. This is first seen in the exterior architecture, where Arquitectonica emulates sand dunes and ocean waves in the building’s rippled, crystalline façade. Inside, the sun-bathed lobby further connects residents to the outdoors, where natural light and sprawling bayfront views of Hillsborough Bay flow in through grand floor-to-ceiling windows.

Meyer Davis follows a unique design narrative influenced by the Florida scrub jay, a vibrant bird native to the Tampa Bay area. Pops of blues inspired by its feathers pair seamlessly with sandy tones, natural textiles, and wooden fixtures. The organic motif continues throughout 12,000 square feet of amenity spaces, where diverse lifestyle experiences and access to 24/7 service by the legendary Ritz-Carlton staff allow residents to live with ease and tranquility. Nowhere is this lifestyle more apparent than The Residences Spa — where sumptuous design details and muted tones create a calming ambience where residents can rest and recharge. Benefits include private treatment rooms and his-and-her saunas.

For a more active experience, residents can enjoy private yoga classes and spin sessions at the state-of-the-art wellness and fitness center or brush up on tennis skills at the outdoor regulation-size tennis court. Rounding out the indoor amenities package is an expansive media lounge that promotes gathering, with a top-of-the-line golf simulator and a full-size billiards table; and steps away, the illustrious wine room with temperature-controlled storage. Outdoors, Enzo Enea elevates The Residences’ sprawling “backyard” through lavishly landscaped gardens centered around the property’s existing grand shaded oak trees.

With year-round al fresco living top of mind, a variety of lounge areas and cabanas situated around the resort-style pool deck affords residents and guests the splendor of living in close proximity to the Bay. Customary to Related Group, museum-quality art is a major centerpiece, with The Residences an exemplar of how architecture, design and art can live in total harmony. As such, local-inspired pieces appear throughout the building’s common areas and outdoor sculpture park.

As a preview of what’s to come with the delivery of The Residences, related transported the 9-foot-tall Fernando Botero sculpture Mujer Vestida (Dressed Woman) to the corner of Bayshore Boulevard, to be easily enjoyed by passersby. Just beyond lies the historic fountain that serves as the only remaining relic from the Centro Español Hospital, which Related is restoring to its original splendor.

Between sweeping vistas of the Bay, warm and sumptuous interiors and unparalleled amenities and services, The Residences is a true design marvel and Tampa’s crown jewel. Homes are available starting at $1.6 million, with various floor plans from 2,940 square feet to 11,140 square feet. For additional information, please visit or call (813) 261-3867.

The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Tampa 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.
