Project Complete: Water Street Block H Tampa

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

RSI poured 21,019 cubic yards of concrete and used 1602 tons of steel rebar and 320,291 pounds of post-tensioning while completing their work on the new 24-floor building.

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 building is just over 480,000 square feet, with 23 floors of retail and living space, plus a 24th floor rooftop amenities area.

The 50-acre Water Street project is the first WELL-Certified Community, a concept that expands the WELL-Building Standard. The mixed-use district features 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 worked closely with the general contractor, Moss & Associates, for on-time and within-budget completion of the concrete portion of the project.
