    Getting a big corporate HQ without having built anything first, and without turning over the keys to that corporation was always a tough task, IMO. The med school is the real anchor tenant anyway.

    173 room 5-star boutique hotel.

    I know that the high end stuff gets eyeballs, but I think we need some announcements on places for normal income people.

    Vinik was on WFLA at 6 PM to talk about that and also highlighted the need for places for all levels of income.

    Mr. Vinik was always planning on Water Street being a place for people at all income levels, but the way the announcements have been made lack context, which I think is the problem here. The Embassy Suites and Waterside Marriott aren't going anywhere, and fit into bigger picture. What the JW and this 5-star hotel bring is a wider range and availability of hotel rooms to the district, and to Tampa. (I'm also figuring that hotels go up first for reasons)

    I thought there was a Marriott already down there, no? They're building an additional one? Or am I crazy? Or all of the above?

    I imagine a lot of future guests will go to the wrong buildings, but Vinik owns (and is renovating) the Tampa Waterside Marriott. SPP is also building a 519-key JW Marriott (which begins construction very soon), and this 173-key Marriott Edition.

    In terms of prices, here's the markets they serve (based on Miami prices for unbuilt hotels). Prices taken from Trivago if you were to check in today. Single room.

    Waterside Tampa - $229/night
    JW - $299/night
    Edition - $599/night

    That is a lot of development.

    Groundbreaking ceremonies will become old hat to these guys.

    I wonder how long the same anecdotes will last if there's a lot of overlap in who attends these types of events.

    The Identity TB isn't taking that next step for me yet. There's still a lack of compelling content (and also I'm not getting ads despite my ad blocker being turned off). The best stuff I've seen are the videos from Visit Tampa Bay.

    Despite the name, I don't get what the site is really supposed to be. It's not really a video site, but it's not useful or updated nearly frequently enough to be a news site.

    There it is. I was wondering when the first pilots would start being announced. You'd think with a second phase in another 3-months, they'd be at least trying some potential shows out or showing previews. Gotta dump that comic sans though.

    Can't influence if folks aren't watching. We'll see about that.
