An in-fill development group plans to restore three bungalow-style houses and build three new row-style houses in the Ybor City section of Tampa.

A group of investors lead by Michael Mincberg, president of Sight Real Estate in Tampa, is investing in the development, called Casitas En Cuatro. The development site is on Fourth Avenue in Ybor City between 18 Street and 19 Street.

Mincberg formed a group of investors in Casitas En Cuatro that includes Nick Friedman and Omar Soliman of College Hunks Hauling Junk and Jordan Vreeland, owner of a mortgage company called 14 Days to Close.

Soliman told the Tampa Bay Business Journal in a prepared statement that “we are always hearing from people in the community that they would love to live in Ybor, but that nothing is available. So when Michael [Mincberg] approached us about Casitas En Cuatro, we knew it would make for a great investment.”

Mincberg, a native of Washington, D.C., first encountered the Ybor City section of Tampa when he was a student at the University of South Florida, and he worked there as a bartender.

Among other in-fill developments, Mincberg is working on the conversion of a bottling plant in the Tampa Heights area to apartments. [Tampa Bay Business Journal] — Mike Seemuth
