NEW YORK, NY (March 4, 2020) – Industrious, the largest premium workplace provider in the U.S., today announced a new location at Sparkman Wharf, downtown Tampa’s new mixed-use waterfront development complex that is part of the 56-acre transformational neighborhood, Water Street Tampa. The company has partnered with landlord Strategic Property Partners, LLC (“SPP”) to convert approximately 44,000 square-feet of a former movie theater into shared workspaces. Industrious Sparkman Wharf is expected to open Q3 2020.

“Water Street Tampa is one of the most high-profile, highly-anticipated real estate projects not just in Florida, but in the country,” said Justin Stewart, president and co-founder of Industrious.  “Industrious always seeks out desirable workplace destinations including active live, work, play centers like this one we’re proud to have built a relationship with SPP for this Sparkman Wharf location and look forward to opening our doors later this year.”

It offers a professional atmosphere with the right mix of thoughtfully-designed spaces to support every kind of work; all-inclusive amenities such as Wi-Fi, a fully-stocked cafe with breakfast served daily, networking events and programming; and access to its vast national network. At Sparkman Wharf, Industrious will be located on the second floor and offer a 3,500-square-foot private terrace with park and waterfront views.  

“For employers who want to be within a dynamic, walkable urban neighborhood with robust amenities and a beautiful waterfront location, Sparkman Wharf is the ideal address,” said David Bevirt, executive vice president of office leasing for Strategic Property Partners. “We are thrilled to welcome Industrious to Water Street Tampa as we continue to support Tampa’s expanding population and strong economic growth with one-of-a-kind office products that suit a wide range of needs for companies of all sizes.”

Tampa’s premiere waterfront destination, Sparkman Wharf — which opened to the public in late 2018 — features 180,000 square-feet of loft-style office space, 65,000 square-feet of ground-level retail and a host of unique culinary options to choose from, all centered around a beautifully-designed one-acre park and recreation lawn. A focal point for the community, Sparkman Wharf’s vibrant dining garden boasts a biergarten and Tampa’s only outdoor food hall, comprised of ten inventive concepts housed in refurbished shipping containers, all programmed by national and local chefs and restaurateurs. SPP has recently taken space at Sparkman Wharf for its corporate headquarters.
