Construction begins on new Tampa marina

Real-estate development and land-investment firm BTI Partners has started work on a 150-slip marina in South Tampa that will be able to serve large vessels. The marina is the centerpiece of a mixed-use community on Tampa Bay called Westshore Marina District.

The marina is located next to Marina Pointe, a luxury condominium development currently being built. It has direct access to Tampa Bay and its deigned to serve boats from 40 to 100 feet long. Concierge-level boat services will include a full-time dockmaster.

“The marina will be a great asset to Marina Pointe, making it Florida’s best new development for boaters,” Dominic Pickering, BTI Partner’s director of sales Central Florida Division, told patch.com. “Our vision was to provide condo owners an unmatched opportunity to have their boats right on their doorstep and enjoy unparalleled access to the largest new deep-water marina under construction in the region.”
