November 29, 2018— The Altman Companies, a nationally recognized developer of exceptional rental apartment communities, today announced the topping-off of Altís Grand Central, a pedestrian-friendly residential development in the Hyde-Park neighborhood of Tampa, Florida.
More than 300 construction workers, city officials, building and transportation inspectors, and Altman Companies executives attended the topping-off ceremony on October 26. During the event, a celebratory Evergreen Tree was hoisted up to the highest point of the apartment tower and a massive 15-foot-long American Flag was suspended from the top of the four-story parking garage. Altís Grand Central’s Superintendent and Project Manager both spoke during the ceremony. Immediately following the ceremony, guests were treated to a BBQ-style buffet.
Scheduled to be completed in late Summer 2019, the nine-story towers, located at 504 W Grand Central Ave., are situated just south of the entrance of University of Tampa and north of Tampa General Hospital in an area that has become home to a collection of sophisticated dining, shopping and entertainment venues.
“We’re very excited to reach this construction milestone with Altís Grand Central,” said Joel Altman, Chairman of The Altman Companies “Residents of Altís Grand Central will be part of the Grand Central District, the most unique and vibrant neighborhood in Tampa. They will be a part of Tampa’s cosmopolitan experiences just steps from work or a brief walk or bus-ride to downtown at two of the city’s finest institutions.”
Altís Grand Central redefines the highest living standards through its unparalleled way of bringing residents an “Exceptional Living Experience” within a single community. Residents of the 314 apartment homes will experience panoramic views of downtown and Tampa Bay from the apartment tower’s rooftop sky lounge and pool. When relaxing, residents will enjoy Class-A amenities including a luxe sun deck, his-and-her spa, a Zen garden, fire pit, a barbecue area, a high-tech dog park and a dog spa for pet owners. The clubroom will be equipped with a gaming area with a pinball machine, PlayStation units, a movie theater, a pool table, and a chic bowling lounge. In keeping with Grand Central District’s walkable environment, the towers will have shopping and dining on the ground floor.
The Altman Companies are offering well-appointed studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes with floor plans that range from 619 to 1,380-square-feet, with secured parking with car charging stations on every level.
