Located north of Downtown Tampa, and south of Seminole Heights, Tampa Heights is experiencing a renaissance and considered a gem location for anyone who wants to live in a historical neighborhood close to downtown parks and trendy restaurants. With street car access soon to be enabled, Tampa Heights is right on the outskirts of downtown’s riverwalk district and offers a picturesque neighborhood with stately oak trees and brick streets.
In recent years, Tampa Heights became the focus of redevelopment efforts. Good things are happening in Tampa’s oldest suburb. The Gonzmart family, famous for their Columbia Restaurants, brought Tampa Heights to the headlines with their award-winning restaurant, Ulele. Around the same time, Mayor Bob Buckhorn and community leaders opened the new Water Works Park and the Armature Works houses restaurants of all genres, including a James Beard award-winning restaurant.
