Related Breaks Ground on Tampa Tower
This Ritz-Carlton property will be the second phase of a two-part development.
The Related Group has broken ground on Tower II of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Tampa, the second of two 30-story luxury bayside towers in the city. The new building will have 94 condominium homes and six villas with open-floor plans measuring up to 5,700 square feet.
Sixty percent of the residences at the tower are already under contract and prices for the remaining units start at $1.7 million. The building is slated for delivery in 2026. The first tower, which has 89 residences and 12 villas, is nearing completion. Prices for the Tower I homes ranged from $1.6 million to $5.1 million.
The Tampa project marks the first time that Miami-based Related Group has joined forces with hotel brand Ritz-Carlton. Architecture firm Arquitectonica, design company Meyer Davis and Swiss landscape architect Enzo Enea also contributed to the luxury development on Tampa’s Bayshore Boulevard.
Tower II at The Residences features floor-to-ceiling windows and wrap-around balconies, offering views of Hillsborough Bay and Downtown Tampa. Kitchens feature custom-designed Italian cabinetry and high-end finishes, including Sub-zero and Wolf appliances. Other unit features include 10-foot high ceilings, keyless entry door locks and other aspects of smart home technology, as well as spacious walk-in closets, full-size top-of-the-line washers and dryers and Kohler plumbing fixtures.
The Ritz-Carlton brand’s service and amenities will include a personalized concierge, on-demand spa service treatment rooms, separate steam rooms and saunas for men and women, a state-of-the art gym and a fitness studio. Amenities also include a swimming pool, spa and full-service food and beverage options, a playroom and entertainment area for children, a business center with conference and office space, media lounge with sports simulators, demo kitchen for entertaining and wine room with temperature-controlled storage. The property will have a rooftop terrace and bar, tennis and pickleball courts, a dog park and dog washing stations.
