Construction of Tampa’s first JW Marriott hotel will start early this year at Water Street Tampa, a master-planned waterfront development in the downtown Tampa.

The 26-story, 527-room hotel is scheduled to open in 2020 with a four-story atrium at the entrance, a full-service restaurant on the ground floor, a sixth-floor spa and gym, and the highest rooftop bar in Tampa. The project architect is Coral Gables-based Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates.

Strategic Property Partners (SPP), the company behind Water Street Tampa, also is renovating a hotel adjacent to the master-plan development area.

SPP is upgrading guestrooms, meeting rooms and the lobby at the 719-room Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Restaurant, located within walking distance of the Tampa Convention Center and Amelie Arena, home of the National Hockey League’s Tampa Bay Lightning. The renovation of the Tampa Marriott Waterside is expected to be finished by early 2019.

SPP is a joint venture of Tampa Bay Lighting owner Jeff Vinik and Cascade Investment, controlled by Microsoft founder Bill Gates.

Water Street Tampa is multi-phase, 50-acre development along downtown Tampa’s waterfront that will encompass more than nine million square feet of commercial, residential, educational, cultural, retail and hospitality space. – Mike Seemuth
