Featuring 700 feet of Tampa Bay shoreline, emphasis was placed on showcasing the water views and cityscape beyond. During the permitting process, it was determined that the project would need to be built above ground on stilts. After removal of several hundred unknown buried telephone poles, the building was constructed with five floors of wood frame construction atop a first-level concrete deck that hovered five feet above existing grade on augercast piles.

ZOM opted to install hurricane impact windows to mitigate storm concerns and noise pollution from the adjacent causeway. Given the sensitive proximity to Tampa Bay, ZOM installed steel sheet pilings along the entire waterfront to protect the mangroves and seagrasses adjacent to the site. Four waterfront courtyards, wrap-around balconies, a 25,000 sf boardwalk, and 33-slip marina promote a waterfront lifestyle.
