DDA Development energizes Ybor corridor with new apartment complex, Class-A office space and retail.
Tampa, FL (August 9, 2021) –Tampa-based DDA Development is set to begin construction on two new projects in Ybor City, completing the revitalization of East 7th Avenue and Nuccio Parkway, an intersection recognized as the gateway of the historic district.
Casa Marti is a 127-unit market rate apartment complex designed in the red brick style of Ybor and includes exposed brick interiors, balconies with wrought-iron railing and other architectural features associated with character of the historic area. The project also includes 6,500 square feet of street-front retail.
Next to Casa Marti, Casa Gomez will feature over 22,000 square feet of Class A office space and a portion of ground floor retail. Casa Gomez aims to attract businesses to the new live/work environment by touting not only the walkability of the wider Ybor community but also the location’s proximity to the trolley line and interstate access.
DDA is working alongside landowner Darryl Shaw to bring these projects to fruition. Bowen Arnold, DDA Principal commented on the collaboration with Shaw, “Development projects have long possessed the promise of reshaping communities and we are excited to work with Darryl to fulfill his vision. Ybor has always been full of potential but it has taken a visionary like Darryl to build consensus and bring the right leaders to the table to set a clear course for Ybor’s future.”
The project names celebrate the history of Cuban Patriot Juan Gualberto Gomez and José Martí, regarded as the George Washington of Cuba, who spent time in Ybor City in the 1890s. It was in Ybor that Marti carried out successful writing and fund-raising campaigns that fueled Cuba’s war of independence from Spain.
Casa Gomez is now leasing now and will be completed in the third quarter of 2022.
Lisa Coulter of JLL is leading the office and retail leasing on both projects. For more leasing information contact Lisa: T: (813) 387-1319 or E: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Apartment leasing for Casa Marti will begin in the fourth quarter of 2022.
