Strategic Property Partners has announced plans to bring Marriott International’s modern luxury brand, Edition, to Tampa in the United States.
The hotel’s debut is pencilled in for 2021.
The 173-room hotel will rise as part of a 26-story tower in the heart of the Water Street Tampa neighbourhood, which will also feature a newly built JW Marriott planned to open the prior year.
True to the Edition brand’s commitment to ground-breaking design, vibrant public spaces and sophisticated programming, the Tampa Edition will offer an elevated hospitality experience never before available in western Florida.
Created through a partnership between innovator Ian Schrager and Marriott International, the brand currently has hotels in New York, Miami, London and Sanya, China, with seven new properties across three continents scheduled to open in 2018.
“We are constantly seeking collaborators that will build upon, enhance and exceed our original vision for Water Street Tampa, and we found that with Marriott International and Ian Schrager Company.
“We knew Edition was the right brand that would create a truly unique hospitality experience in Tampa, which further elevates the neighbourhood and community for visitors and city residents,” said Strategic Property Partners chief executive, James Nozar.
“Water Street Tampa exists in immediate proximity to the best that Tampa has to offer in terms of cultural institutions, entertainment, recreational, dining and shopping options, and the Tampa Edition will only enrich these offerings through its innovative programming, features and amenities.”
Designed by Morris Adjmi, the Tampa Edition is the acclaimed New York-based architect’s first commission in Tampa, among a handful of past projects in Florida.
Admji is working in collaboration with Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates, a Florida-based architecture and planning firm.
Paired with interiors designed by Roman and Williams, known for designing stunning spaces around the world, the Tampa Edition will offer multiple social and amenity spaces for guests and residents to enjoy, including a rooftop pool with adjacent bar and restaurant as well as an expansive spa and fitness centre.
