Congrats to Water Street Tampa and SPP for this incredible designation
We are so proud to have been a major part of this development – architects for JW Marriott Water Street, Marriott Waterside, and the Tampa Edition.
Tampa-based real estate development firm Strategic PropertyPartners, LLC (SPP) recently announced that Water Street Tampa — the mixed-use development transforming 56 contiguous acres along the Downtown Tampa’s waterfront — has achieved LEED silver certification under the category of LEED® for Neighborhood Development: Plan, which focuses on the design of public spaces between buildings and how they will be used by people in the community. The United States Green Building Council awarded this certification to Water Street Tampa for the design of its walkable streets, tree-lined and shaded streetscapes, access to quality public transit, proximity between housing and jobs, and energy-efficient infrastructure, all part of Water Street Tampa’s commitment to employ sustainability and wellness-based design on a district-wide scale.
…LEED acknowledges excellence in green construction for individual buildings while LEED Neighborhood Development considers the design of public spaces between buildings and how they will be used by people in the community. Water Street Tampa’s LEED ND plan certification builds on the momentum achieved by individual buildings throughout the district, including Heron, which achieved LEED Gold last year, and Sparkman Wharf and District Cooling, both of which received LEED Gold in 2020. Several buildings are currently pursuing LEED certification, including Thousand & One, Asher, Cora and NBWW designed JW Marriott Tampa Water Street.
