BTI Partners starts work on Westshore Marina District condos

Fort Lauderdale-based BTI Partners has commenced construction of the first of three planned residential towers within its 52-acre Westshore Marina District project between Tampa and St. Petersburg.

The roughly $150 million tower and related 150-slip marina follows work that added apartments, townhomes, retail space and parkland within the new community off Westshore Boulevard.

In all, BTI Partners has sold tracts for in excess of $40 million to Bainbridge Cos., WCI Communities and The Related Group.
