The Armory Review Committee's rankings are in: The Heritage Square project received top nods from the six committee members to redevelop the Fort Homer Hesterly Armory in West Tampa. The Armory Partners' film and television sound stage and Reliant's ice rink and condo development received no. 2 and no. 3 spots, respectively.
The rankings now go to the National Guard Board and the Mayor and City Council for approval. If there are no objections, and the Heritage Square developers pass negotiations and financial muster, the farmers market/specialty retail/health spa/five-star hotel behemoth will become West Tampa's new neighbor.
