The Ian Schrager Company will curate the selection of ground-floor restaurants and retail stores at Edition Tampa, expected to open in 2021.

New York-based architect Morris Adjimi designed Edition Tampa in collaboration with Coral Gables-based architecture and planning firm Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates.

Edition hotels currently operate in London, Miami Beach, New York and Sanya, China. Seven more are scheduled to open on three continents this year.

Strategic Property Partners, the developer of Water Street Tampa, also is building a JW Marriott hotel as part of the mixed-use development along the city’s downtown waterfront. Construction of the JW Marriott was scheduled to start by the end of April.

Construction is starting this year on the hotel and other buildings at Water Street Tampa, a master-planned development that eventually would encompass more than 9 million square feet of space for residential, commercial, retail, educational and other types of space.

The Water Street Tampa project also includes work on a third hotel, the existing Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina, a 727-room property undergoing renovation. – Mike Seemuth
