TAMPA, FL – The national building contractor Suffolk Construction is celebrating the topping off of its first building at Manor Riverwalk in downtown Tampa.
Located at 202 S. Parker St., the site where printing presses once churned out 220,000 copies of The Tampa Tribune each day, Suffolk has completed the tallest north tower building of the first phase of the project.
The tower being developed by The Related Group will feature 400 luxury rental apartments.
Once complete, the multifamily community will include an eight-story waterfront complex with three wings stretching east and a center wing which appears to float over a pool and covered deck along the western bank of the Hillsborough River.
“We’re extremely pleased with the progress of this major development in Tampa’s downtown core,” said Josh Christensen, vice president of Suffolk’s west coast Florida operations. “We are also incredibly gratified to be a part of such an important part of Tampa’s evolution.”
“This top-out signals another step towards our goal of developing a project that respects and complements the surrounding neighborhood and elevates the broader Tampa region,” said Arturo Peña, vice president of development for Related. “We look forward to finalizing construction and meeting Tampa’s growing demand for high-end living options.”
Construction has been underway since July 2017 and the project is expected to be completed in early 2019.
