Keystone Hotel Group is planning a $6M project at the northwest corner of Seventh/Race. They would renovate the existing historic building and incorporate a modern addition on top of its three-story podium. The project would result in a new 110-room TownePlace Suites with a LEED Silver certification.
I highly recommend my local followers check out this exhibit for Tampa Bay Design Week (@tbdesignweek) by @wideopenoffice. Having lived in #yborcity the last two years I think it beautifully captures the spirit of the small businesses that make things by hand in this unique neighborhood. If you like the original post you can also vote for them for the people's choice recognition in the design week challenge.
Hing Hay Park means "Park for Pleasurable Gatherings" and its renovation stands up to the name. The new "Gateway" art piece features 109 skin panels, 768 interior brackets and weighs around 15,000 pounds.
