Tampa development will create minimum of 149 new slips

TAMPA, Fla. – Work has begun on a $40-million mixed residential development in Tampa that will be home to a deep-water marina with a minimum of 149 slips, a story in Friday’s Tampa Business Journal reported.

The development will be built on 68 acres of land just south of Tyson Avenue and South West Shore Boulevard into an upscale subdivision called Westshore Yacht Club, and will include three acres of walking trails and nature parks and a clubhouse complete with fitness center, restaurants, ships store and rooftop patio, according to the newspaper.

“Docks and slips are always a highly sensitive issue when it comes to the approval process,” Rob King, a senior project manager for developer WCI, told the newspaper. “We have the luxury of the channel being extremely deep near the property, and we expect to have 149.”
