Welcome to Tampaâ€™s Most Iconic Residence
Services & Amenities
Perched Near the Water’s Edge Calm. Beautiful. Strong. The heron is an iconic Florida shorebird always identifiable in the sky or at the water’s edge. Native to Tampa, it was natural to find our inspiration in this regal bird with its simple elegance and grace.
An Elevated Vision A thriving city. An abundance of natural beauty. Instinctively, we knew they could coexist. Heron reimagines urban living—creating a tranquil oasis within an energized community—a place to live your life in balance with the world.
A Transformational Experience Impeccable style, bespoke details, premium services and amenities. Heron defines a new benchmark for living in Tampa—and sets the stage for you to live your best life.
At Home in Water Street Tampa Two light-filled towers. A collection of 420 rental apartment homes. Perfectly positioned at the entrance to the Tampa Riverwalk, Heron is a vibrant community interconnected with the nature and culture of Tampa.
A collection of architects and designers were curated to collaborate on this iconic residential offering, led by:
Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates One of the world’s leading architectural firms, KPF is known for their aspirational and sustainable buildings. Their design for Heron was inspired by the natural structure, purity and life of Florida’s coral reefs. The two towers, connected by a retail podium, gently angle towards the water in order to optimize both the light and unobstructed views enjoyed within. “By integrating natural materials and textures that are both refined and rough, the building offers an authentic connection to nature, making those who enter it feel both grounded and inspired while adding a striking and unique look to the Tampa waterfront.” — Trent Tesch, KPF Design Principal
A Singular Vision Simplicity. Our world-class design team has distilled the essence of modern living into an elegant home, a vibrant community, and a gateway to the natural beauty all around us.
Cecconi Simone Inc. is an award-winning, multi-disciplinary interior design practice based in Toronto, Canada. Their interior design for Heron celebrates the striking architecture conceived by KPF with material palettes that are natural, textural, inviting and warm, and finishes that are honest, authentic and real. The residences were designed with attention to the use of space, the optimum views and livability. “Heron strikes the perfect balance of exciting architecture with highly livable and functional interiors. The integration of wellness played an important role in the design. The connection to nature throughout the towers was carefully considered: daylight, greenery, outdoor spaces, fresh air.” — Elaine Cecconi, Partner
Raymond Jungles Raymond Jungles’ timeless designs create places of wonder for all living organisms. As landscape architects, they strive to preserve and protect existing ecosystems while also evoking human interaction and improving the lives of others. Their design for Heron features a diverse and intriguing plant palette comprised of native and adapted plant species. “Heron represents the confluence of the urban fabric and the Tampa Riverwalk, integrating architecture, art and landscape into the public realm. Sub-tropical ecologies leverage pockets of sunshine imbuing the space with the wild elegance of the regional flora and evoking the mosaic of habitats surrounding the Bay.” — Guy Champin of Raymond Jungles
Strategic Property Partners Strategic Property Partners (SPP) is the developer and owner of Heron. SPP believes buildings are only as good as the spaces in between them. A partnership between Cascade Investment LLC and Jeff Vinik, SPP is a full-service commercial real estate development firm focused on world-class execution, innovation, and creating high quality mixed-use neighborhoods including Water Street Tampa. SPP’s goal is to create the infrastructure for enduring, vibrant, forward-thinking communities that promote inclusivity, sustainability and social wellbeing. “With Heron, we set out to create a building that celebrated the elements that make Tampa special. Each residence was thoughtfully designed to allow access to the Florida sunshine and weather from the comfort of your own home. We are honored to have the opportunity to contribute to the Tampa skyline and hope that Heron will bring widespread recognition to the City of Tampa.” — Danny Mora, Developer, Strategic Property Partners
