Project Awarded: Water Street Block H - Tampa

RSI will be providing a turnkey concrete package from foundations through roof for Block H of the downtown Tampa Water Street project.

Block H is part of Strategic Property Partners’ (SPP) $3 billion Water Street project in downtown Tampa. Investors in the project include Bill Gates and Jeff Vinik, the owner of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The exterior façade of Block H features an “exposed to view” architectural concrete finish. The finished building will be just over 480,000 square feet, with 23 floors of retail and living space, plus a 24th floor rooftop amenities area with a pool and lounge.

The 50-acre Water Street project is the first WELL-Certified Community, a concept that expands the WELL-Building Standard. The mixed-use district will feature extra-wide sidewalks, a full-service grocery store, regular fitness programming, buildings spaced to encourage walking, reduced light pollution, tree-canopy shaded sidewalks, and fountains.

RSI’s work on Block H will begin in December, with the majority of the structural concrete work completing in October 2020.

RSI will work closely with the general contractor, Moss & Associates, for on-time and within-budget completion of the concrete portion of the project.
