Strategic Property Partners, LLC has announced plans to bring Marriott International’s modern luxury brand, EDITION, to Tampa. Set to open in 2021, the 173-room hotel will be part of a 26-story tower in the heart of the Water Street Tampa neighborhood, which will also have a newly built JW Marriott planned to open the prior year. Created through a partnership between Ian Schrager and Marriott International, the EDITION hotel brand currently has properties in New York, Miami, London and Sanya, China, with seven new locations across three continents scheduled to open in 2018.
Designed by Morris Adjmi, the Tampa EDITION is the New York-based architect's first commission in Tampa, among a handful of past projects in Florida. Morris Admji is working in collaboration with Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates, a Florida-based architecture and planning firm.
Paired with interiors designed by Roman and Williams, the Tampa EDITION will offer multiple social and amenity spaces for guests and residents, including a rooftop pool with adjacent bar and restaurant, as well as a spa and fitness center. Anchoring the ground floor will be a selection of curated restaurant and retail spaces that have been programmed by the Ian Schrager Company.
Strategic Property Partners recently announced that it will introduce Marriott International’s JW Marriott luxury brand to Tampa in 2020. Strategic Property Partners is also investing to fully renovate the existing 727-room Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina. Combined, the JW Marriott and Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina will create the largest collection of hotel rooms and meeting space in the Tampa Bay area with 1,246 rooms and 150,000 square feet of meeting and event space. The renovation of the Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina is expected to be completed Spring 2019, and construction of the JW Marriott is slated to begin in April 2018.
