A mixed-use and infill project that provides an urban park to serve as a pedestrian connection in downtown Tampa, the Pierhouse at Channelside also celebrates the Tampa Channel District and its unique urban landscape.
Pierhouse transformed a city street into a vibrant public space that is an asset to both the urban infill apartments and the surrounding district. Historically an industrial area that developed to serve the port, Channelside lagged behind other areas in transitioning and redeveloping, as containerized shipping displaced general cargo shipping in Tampa. In fact, 11th Ave. had become a mostly abandoned section of the district. Now, with the development of Pierhouse, 11th Ave. is remade as an urban park that connects the public to the water as well as to the district’s maritime history.
