YIMBY recently stopped by the completed first phase of Water Street Tampa, the 56-acre mixed-use neighborhood developed by Strategic Property Partners located within the southern stretch of Downtown Tampa, beside the Channel District. Today, we’re taking a look at Asher Residences, a dynamic, highly-amenitized new 22-story apartment tower at 1050 Water Street designed by Morris Adjmi Architects alongside ODP Architecture & Design as the architect of record. The 273-foot-tall post-modern structure spans approximately 787,808 square feet and offers 490 rental residences ranging from studio to two-bedroom floor plans, as well as 30,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. In addition to offering a collection of rental residences, the developer teamed up with Philadelphia-based hospitality company Method Co. to bring the first Florida location of their high-design extended-stay concept, ROOST Apartment Hotel, at Asher.

Recent aerial photographs show the exterior of the building, which offers a nod to Tampa’s industrial history with large, industrial-style grids of oversized divided-light windows that maximize natural light.

“Morris Adjmi designed Asher to reflect Tampa’s evolving urban context while maximizing opportunities for indoor-outdoor experiences. Large, factory-style windows flood interior spaces with natural light, and some units feature sliding glass doors that open onto private balconies. Within, the interiors balance a modern way of living with efficient, streamlined units tied together by vibrant communal spaces. Complete with abundant outdoor amenity areas, including a lush rooftop pool surrounded by enclosed cabanas, the new multifamily building provides resort-like comforts within the new downtown setting.”

The next image shows the southern-facing elevation of window grids that towers over Asher’s outdoor amenity area on the 7th floor. It’s the largest pool deck in Water Street Tampa, complete with cabanas, outdoor kitchens, an indoor-outdoor bar, and an entertainment lawn. Indoor amenities at Asher feature a state-of-the-art fitness center, entertainment space, a screening lounge, and a co-working space with private conference rooms.

Windows are composed of gray mullions that divided the glass into nine smaller squares. Windows overall are framed with gray metal panels, atop a white stucco wall.
