Moreover, the Hotel is located nearby new large-scale developments that will lead to robust economic growth for the area. The $500M Midtown Tampa project is largely complete, while Tampa International Airport’s $2 Billion long-term capital plan has completed two of three phases with the commercial component now complete. Backed by Bill Gates’ Cascade Investments and Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik, the first phase of the $3B Water Street project features over five million square feet of space that will be delivered by 2022. These massive investments prove that Tampa has evolved into a true 18-hour city ready to compete with the likes of Austin, Nashville, and Charlotte for luxury tourism, high-paying jobs, and primetime citywide events. The Current is extremely well-positioned to drive market-leading performance in the years ahead as it becomes the crowning jewel of this desirable and high-growth market.
