New tower bay to bay & ysabella

Developers Plan Tower Near Bayshore

Douglas Development Services of Winter Park announced yesterday that it would like to build a 15 story condo tower at Bay-to-Bay and Ysabella, just one block from Bayshore Blvd. The 165 foot tall tower would contain 65 condos, and 5 levels of parking.

The first thought that comes to mind is another Citivest-ish battle with the neighborhood, but that seems unlikely as the tower would be located in the lesser-NIMBY area further away from Hyde Park, and that it would replace not a Victorian mansion, but a parking lot.

SOUTH TAMPA - Developers want to build a 15-story condominium tower a block from Bayshore Boulevard.

The 144,877-square-foot, 60-unit building would replace a parking lot on Ysabella Avenue near Barcelona Street. It would have about 300 parking spaces, some of which would be used by businesses at Ysabella and Bay to Bay Boulevard, a city urban planner said. Those businesses currently use the parking lot.

Douglas Development Services Inc. of Winter Park will ask the city council next month to rezone the property. It was rezoned in 2000 to allow offices, city planner Angela Hurley said.

The tower, which could be 165 feet tall, would include five stories of parking beneath 10 stories of condominiums. There would be a pool and amenity deck, plans show.

The developers could not be reached for comment.

the parcel is ``in a valuable part of Tampa, and it's not going to stay [a parking lot] forever.''

members use the lot for overflow parking.

``We've always had good relations with our neighbors, and we would try to have good relations with our new neighbors,''
