Rome Yards will consist of 954 residential units including apartments and townhouses to be built within six years; 600 of which will be for workforce housing and affordable housing. The city and the company have an established working relationship and a shared interest in building a quality community.


Located on downtown Tampa’s waterside, the property sits on a bluff overlooking the river as it winds downtown. Conveniently located with quick and easy access to Tampa International Airport, South Tampa, and nearby Riverside, and Seminole Heights.


Related envisions just what the city of Tampa rightly called for — a mixed-use neighborhood of both affordable and market-rate housing, retail, “micro” space for local startups and a workforce training center, along with an amphitheater, great lawn and other amenities that define an urban lifestyle. The 18-acre Rome Yards Development Project, a $300 million joint venture between the Tampa Housing Authority, the City of Tampa, and Related Urban Development Group. The plans include a brick observation “cigar tower” to honor the cigar factories that were an indelible part of West Tampa’s Latin history. The company also will work with local historians on a cultural and arts center.
