Trump Tower Tampa was the name of an unfinished condominium project located in downtown Tampa, Florida.
Ground was broken on March 2, 2006, and in July 2007, the foundation footings were drilled. But actual construction of the towers was never started due to the economic collapse of the real estate market–and the economy in general–near the end of the Bush administration.
Brownstone Partners Tampa, an investment group led by Robert Owens of OR&L Facility Services, acquired the property on June 20, 2011. In 2015, a joint venture of Feldman Equities and Tower Realty Partners paid $12 million for a small office building and the now-vacant site.
On April 17, 2017, St. Petersburg-based developer Larry Feldman announced that he will open a sales office late this summer for his 52-story mixed-use building on the downtown riverfront site of the doomed Trump Tower Tampa.
The building will be visible from the end of Bayshore Boulevard and the site of the now-demolished Tampa General Hospital. It’s directly across the Hillsborough River from the also-demolished Tampa Tribune building, which has now been redeveloped as as 400 waterfront apartments.
Feldman’s tower will feature restaurants and bars at street level with parking, plus office and residential space above.
