Building a Connected City with WhiteSpace

Strategic Property Partners is building the future of southern downtown Tampa at Water Street: a connected, urban, multi-use project on the waterfront. Once all phases of the development are completed, there will be up to 9,000,000 square feet of new commercial, residential, educational, entertainment, cultural and retail space with a total investment exceeding $3 billion.

SPP Technology Initiatives

Water Street Tampa is the world’s first neighborhood development to achieve the WELL Design & Operations designation under the WELL Community Standard. Their charge is to positively impact the people who spend time in the district’s public spaces to promote health and well-being across all aspects of community life. 


Whitespace is enthusiastically and uniquely qualified to work with Strategic Property Partners in this exciting endeavor. By ensuring the behind the scenes technology is in place to support the all of its initiatives, programs and activities, Water Street Tampa will lead world’s first Well District and define the standard for well-living in a community.   

Marketing Center

Water Street Tampa’s Marketing Center is a showcase for technology in real life in one of the country’s newest and most innovative designed communities!

Distributed Antenna System (DAS) / Small Cell Coverage

Improve cellular service and capacity in your district public spaces and buildings with a thoughtfully planned DAS and Small Cell network.  

Cyber Security / Data Governance

Knowing the increasing privacy and legal issues that accompany internet usage, cyber security and data governance is a primary focus as it ensures both internal security as well as the security of tenants, residents and guests. 

Communication Corridor

One significant way to future proof your master plan development is with a Communication Corridor – a multi-conduit fiber duct bank provides conduits for owners, carrier, network providers and future use.

Sparkman Wharf, Water Street Tampa

Sparkman Wharf

As Tampa’s only outdoor food hall and waterfront park, Sparkman Wharf celebrates the best of the city— great weather, waterfront views, music, craft beer, and exceptional dining. Approximately 65,000 square feet of refreshed ground-level retail space is being added to this top community and cultural destination. The outdoor park features 10 chef-driven restaurants in repurposed shipping containers, a covered biergarten, an outdoor stage with frequent live music and an expansive lawn with games, fitness events and waterfront views. Oriented towards our park-like environment that overlooks the waterfront, the future retail space is being surrounded by exciting energy, as well as space to just sit, relax and enjoy the view.

Ubiquitous & Pervasive WiFi

With a universal and pervasive WiFi network, residents, tenants and guests experience seamless connectivity – no more multiple sign-ins or dropped service! A secure and open network architecture allows for current and future IoT devices as well as an Emergency Management Portal for tenant, resident and guest notifications.  

Smart Light Poles

You may see a light pole but look closer… these sophisticated technology assets extend the cellular service and connect to emergency management platforms. These sensors and cameras augment physical security while providing vital information on energy consumption and analytics that drive business decisions. 

Kiosks and Digital Signage

Kiosks and Digital Signage enhance the tenant, resident and guest experience by providing wayfinding, directory and interactive entertainment applications. These state of the art signs are also technology assets as they house sensors that provide information to enhance safety and efficiency throughout the district.  

Building Management Systems (BMS)

A master BMS controls and manages all building systems and data across the district. This system provides a unified platform for naming conventions, control, resolution and analytics and, ultimately, provide the foundation for energy efficient and cost-saving decisions.

Water Street Tampa is a WELL-certified neighborhood

The World’s First WELL-Certified Neighborhood

Setting the Global Bar for Community Wellness: As the first neighborhood in the world to achieve the WELL Design and Operations designation under the WELL Community Standard, Water Street Tampa is designed to positively impact the health and well-being of individuals in the public spaces where they spend their time. What is the WELL Community Standard? The WELL Community Standard is an evidence-based system used for measuring, certifying and monitoring features that impact the human experience. These core concepts are central to the Water Street Tampa ethos, helping our community set new standards for wellness worldwide.

1001 Water Street office tower (Downtown Tampa, Florida)

1001 Water Street

The Center of a Connected Community: 1001 Water Street is the first trophy office tower to break ground in Tampa’s downtown in almost three decades. This 20-story mixed-use building is designed by COOKFOX to connect people to nature and invite them outside during the workday. 


Through a diversity of technology assets, there is the ability to visually monitor activities through cameras and interpret sound, air quality and even population density through sensors that are tied to a central command center. This live data enables timely and responsive communication with local authorities. 

Charging Station

As electric cars are more prevalent than ever, charging stations are no longer a “wish list” item, but a necessary response to tenant, resident and guests growing need for them. Charging stations are a clear message of your commitment to sustainable and efficient energy.

Smart Parking

Through an integrated mobile parking app, a district can leverage technology to provide a parking inventory management system, dynamic pricing and real-time analytics to assess traffic patterns for local events, foot traffic to optimize surrounding inventory, parking utilization and efficiency. 

Smart Waste Management

Why would anyone want to “track their trash?” With smart waste management technology a district becomes more efficient with its resources—namely money and people. Equally important, smart waste management syncs with our call for sustainability to reduce our environmental impact. 

District App

A District App will feature portals for resident and tenants as well as district guest services.  In addition, wayfinding, a mobile wallet and concierge services are just some of the benefits realized by its end-users.
