Downtown continues building its reputation as a high-caliber urban center that features
quality residential, commercial, and recreational assets. Tampa Hotel Partners
began converting the Classic Federal Courthouse into Le Meridien Hotel
and American Realty Development broke ground on the 80-unit Madison
Heights senior apartment complex. Downtown also continued to host
a number of exciting activities and events along the waterfront, keeping
Tampa in position as Florida's West Coast leader for business, cultural amenities, convention activities, and urban living.
