It’s full steam ahead for Tampa’s newest buzzy neighborhood: Ybor Harbor. Last week, city council approved the comprehensive plan amendment and rezoning application for the ~33-acre area, according to the Tampa Bay Business Journal.

We shared the news about the massive new mixed-use development last year, but here’s an update on the proposed plans:

  • The development comes from Tampa Bay investor Darryl Shaw, who is also behind the incoming Gas Worx project.
  • The project team includes engineering firm Stantec.
  • Ybor Harbor will be situated east of Channelside Drive and west of North 19th Street on the Ybor Channel.
  • The neighborhood would include 800+ hotel rooms and 4,750 new residential units.
  • A public waterfront, with boat docks and piers, is a major fixture of the plans.
