LOCATION: 116 S Fremont Ave.
DEVELOPER: Tampa Residential LLC.
DESCRIPTION: Two-story building with three townhomes. Each 1,700-square-foot unit has three bedrooms and 2½ bathrooms. Italian Romanesque architecture.
PRICE: Low $400,000s.
DESIGNER: Carlos Castilla and Associates, Tampa.
AMENITIES: Private gated entrance to each unit; pecan hardwood floors; granite countertops in kitchens and bathrooms; stainless steel appliances in kitchens; high ceilings; Roman tub and separate walk-in shower in bathrooms; tiled balcony off master bedrooms; two-car garage with steel panel garage doors; and centralized pest control tube system installed in walls.
WHAT THEY'RE SAYING: "It feels like a substantial Italian villa," said Tampa Residential managing partner Bob Brozey. Details from the architecture to the dark pecan wood floors were inspired by a trip that Brozey's business partner Mike Schrenk took to Florence and Tuscany, Italy. "All that came right from the true Italian urban villas," Brozey said.
TIMELINE: An old house was demolished on the site last summer. Construction started Jan. 14 and is scheduled to be finished in early June.
MOVE-IN DATE: Early June.
