Located in the desirable historic neighborhood of Hyde Park in Tampa, Florida, The Verano brings much needed residential living to a primarily office & commercial district adjacent to Downtown Tampa. The scale of this project is complementary to its context, in particular, the historic Gorrie Elementary School to the south and the Friday Morning Musicale to the east.

This project includes two buildings which define the street edge while concealing parking behind them at the interior of the block. A seven-story condominium building sits atop a two-level parking garage which is hidden behind townhouses. A tree-lined pedestrian promenade separates this 34-unit mid-rise building from 25 three-story townhouses and flats comprising the remainder of the street frontage on the block.

The Verano’s architectural language is reminiscent of the Spanish Mediterranean Revival architecture common in Florida in the 1920’s. Davis Islands and Temple Terrace are two neighborhoods nearby which exemplify this renaissance in Tampa during that development boom era.
