what happened to Trump Tampa

A 35-story apartment tower in downtown St. Petersburg. Two huge new communities with sunset views of Old Tampa Bay. A 52-story tower overlooking Tampa’s Riverwalk.

If you haven’t heard much about these lately, it’s because not much is happening — at least not yet.

While a $2 billion redo of Tampa’s Channel District and other mega projects are underway, others have yet to get out of the ground. That’s partly the nature of the projects themselves and partly the nature of development in general, especially as another boom begins to show hints of a slowdown.
