Best Downtown Tampa Defibrillator (We Hope): VINIKVILLE/TAMPA PORT

Best Downtown Tampa Defibrillator (We Hope)

When Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik announced his billion-dollar plan to revamp what’s now known as the Channelside area into a snazzy mixed-use development, there was much rejoicing. Then Gov. Rick Scott approved USF’s request to move its medical school to the area, a likely boon to the area. Good stuff, obvs. But then the Tampa Port announced it would be transforming some of its land into a mixed use development as well, with a couple of shiny, futuristic towers to boot. We hope it all works out as planned, man, assuming people of all income levels benefit.
