Fitness center, plus ice cream and cafes moving into Water Street Tampa
Water Street Tampa will soon welcome three new small businesses to retail spaces within the downtown Tampa waterfront development: Orangetheory Fitness, Shortwave Coffee and Chill Bros. Scoop Shop.
With Phase 1 of Water Street Tampa due for completion later this year, developer Strategic Property Partners (SPP) says residents can expect around 70 retailers when completed, as green spaces and plazas come to life.
“At SPP, we are proud to bring a variety of businesses to Water Street Tampa. [The newly signed leases] are just the beginning of this stuff, ”says Susan Martin, vice president of retail and location management at Strategic Property Partners. “It brings our neighbors, our residents, even the people who come to town for a convention, a place to train, a place to have a cup of coffee and a place to have a scoop of ice cream.”
With about a dozen new leases signed at Water Street Tampa this year, these three tenants, alongside existing tenants, say they see the value of establishing a footprint in this mixed-use urban development as it is still under construction.
Here are the three additions:
Fitness orange theory
Located in the retail space of the Cumberland Avenue parking garage
Known for its scientific approach to fitness, this international fitness studio is slated to open this fall. Adjacent to the neighborhood’s new Trophy office tower and the first WELL Core and Shell certified office building in nearly 30 years, Thousand & One, the fitness studio puts more emphasis on mental and physical well-being. . Combining science, coaching and technology to maximize results, this location will offer full body group workouts based on heart rate.
Short wave coffee
Located in one of Sparkman Wharf’s premium retail spaces
This award-winning Columbia, MO-based craft cafe will debut in Tampa in early 2022. Roast and Coffee offers breakfast, lunch, and baked goods, as well as espresso-based beverages and freshly brewed coffee and tea. . Shortwave roasts their own coffee beans and will provide a full espresso bar, coffee catering and the option of a pop-up coffee at various events.
Chill Bros. Scoop Shop
Located at the foot of Cora, a new apartment complex along Cumberland Avenue
Growing their business, the Chillura brothers, originally from Tampa, founders of Chill Bros. Scoop Shop, are opening their third store in Tampa on Water Street. Named after the brothers, their shop focuses on locally making all of their product, starting with the ice cream itself, through to cones and waffle toppings. Opening in early 2022, customers will have the chance to enjoy their all-natural custard scoops made from Florida milk and cream, egg yolks, pure cane sugar and a pinch of salt. Make sure to check out their traditional American style ice cream.
