Here’s the latest update that I thought you would enjoy.
Seeing is Believing
What do you think is cool about downtown Tampa? What do you wish more people knew about the urban core? Do you know about a hidden niche that needs some exposure? The Partnership launched last October http://www.hilifetampa.com/. This Web site is designed to inform viewers about the advantages of downtown Tampa. But not everything that’s cool about the city center is on the site. Therefore the Partnership is beginning to collect ideas for the next step in HiLife Tampa, which is HiLife TV. Find out how you can submit your ideas and suggestions by clicking here.
Soon, downtown Tampa will add another great coffee house to its growing list. Indigo Coffee is nearing completion of the build out of its first store, which will be located at 514 N. Franklin Street. Next time you are in the area take a look inside through the windows. The store is sure to be a hit.
Speaking of new restaurants, Bamboozle, a new Vietnamese fusion restaurant is just beginning its build out. The restaurant is opening at 514 N. Tampa Street. No announcement on when the restaurant will actually open, but this style cuisine is one that has not been served in downtown Tampa yet.
Some believed it would never happen, but demolition of the old Tampa Museum of Art is in full swing. Started last Thursday (1/31) the removal of the underground parking garage is well underway. The building itself will soon begin to be dismantled. Curtis Hixon Park is also beginning to be demolished. Learn about what’s to come. Here are a few links to help you become familiar with how this part of downtown will be reshaped for everyone’s future enjoyment:

The projects listed above are not the only new public projects under construction. The Tampa Bay History Center is progressing nicely as construction continues of its new facility near the St. Pete Times Forum.
The Tampa Bay History Center is a unique project for several reasons. One in particular is that the building will be a LEED certified green building when completed.
