Tim Jarrett, who spearheaded a major revitalization of the Centre Club over the past two years, has been named as the Chief Operating Officer of the Armature Works – the centerpiece for the “The Heights” which is a transformative redevelopment project located along downtown Tampa’s Riverwalk.
The Armature Works, a 73,444-square-foot former storage and maintenance facility for Tampa’s streetcars, will soon be repurposed to house the Heights Market, two event spaces, restaurants, a shared workspace, and a rooftop social area, all scheduled to be completed by early next year.
“Tim’s background in hospitality, events and membership development is a great fit for this multi-faceted project,” said Chas Bruck, principal of SoHo Capital.
Jarrett has over 22 years in the hospitality industry, the last seven of which were as the General Manager at the Centre Club. He is credited with stabilizing the club that was struggling financially as well as managing the club’s multi-million dollar reinvention.
“The Armature Works project is vital to the continued renaissance of downtown Tampa and I look forward to being a part of the SoHo Capital team that has a proven winning track record,” said Jarrett.
The adaptive re-use of the Armature Works is the first step in the development of the 43-acre mixed-use Heights project, which will eventually expand to include a mix of residential units for sale and for rent, an office village, additional eateries, ground floor retail, a hotel, on-street and structured parking and an expansion of the Tampa Riverwalk.
Jarrett will begin his new role on August 1.
