BEST DÉJÀ VU CONDO PROJECT: Element

If you’ve seen the signs surrounding the busy construction site of what will soon be the Element condo tower in downtown Tampa, you might find yourself scratching your head and wondering, “Where have I seen this before?” The answer lies right across the street. Element is the latest downtown venture of the Novare Group, and is a close facsimile of the builder’s recently completed Skypoint tower. (You know, the big blue building in downtown Tampa.) If you’re ready to take the urbanite plunge, now might be the time to buy. Of course, if you falter, Novare will probably just start another tower once Element is complete. And then another. And another.
