Seeing is Believing
Out with the old to make way for the new. Most reports in the “Seeing is Believing” section focus on projects already underway.
But what about future projects? This week, let’s take a look at what will soon be demolished to make way for future growth in downtown:

Tampa Museum of Art:
Officials report that the current building will close in December with all the artwork being relocated for safe keeping to Orlando. The building will begin to be demolished in January. The site will be brought down to grade and used to expand Curtis Hixon Park, which will undergo a complete renovation of its own.

The Slade:
Another condominium project is preparing its site in the Channel District. With a location book ended by 12th Street and Meridian Avenue, The Slade site is clearing away old warehouses that once dominated the entire Channel District. Construction of the new building is not yet set.

U.S. Post Office:
Located at 900 N. Florida Avenue, this post office location will move in November to 400 N. Tampa Street in order for the Florida Avenue location to be demolished. The building is being torn down to make way for a new parking facility and amenities deck for The Flordan Hotel, which is undergoing a full historic renovation.
