Tampa’s skyline looks as though it is in route to expand with the project entitled, Encore, underway. They’re calling the development, a city within a city, and rightfully so. Encore will start with the construction of a senior-living apartment complex named The Ella. They are gauging this complex towards individuals 65 years of age and older. Adjacent to this complex, are plans to construct another mid-income apartment building called Trio. Further plans include a third complex building called Tempo which will be located on the northwest corner between the first two buildings.
With these three complexes containing a total of 449 homes, the dream of this city within a city grew. The very center of Encore is said to unify the people of the neighborhood with shops and businesses alike. The developers have turned a former church into a Black History Museum to add more culture to the family oriented neighborhood. Close by will be a grocery store designed to service Encore and Channelside. With many offices around the development for sale, we can only imagine what other exciting surprises will ensue.
Leaving nothing behind, Encore will provide parks for children of all ages as well as a skate park for the more daring at heart, which will be positioned appropriately near a local middle school. Amidst these parks will be a community center, said to host events all year round.
Finally, Encore has decided to complete their masterpiece with an amphitheatre and performance stage. Tampa has always been a prime area to entice artists and bands of all genres, and this new center will surely be a buzz of excitement for many artists who want to break in the new stage and provide endless entertainment to the new neighborhood of Encore.
