Tampa is finally finding its footing. We started off slow with projects like Oxford Exchange. As we’re growing, we’re defining ourselves. One thing I think is important, and exciting, is that we are building architecturally significant places. We have somewhat of a blank slate that we can define. It’s exciting to know that when we look at Tampa in 10 years, it’ll still be the city we love, it’ll just be an elevated version of that.”
