Tampa Urban Tour of Homes

Title card for very long blog post on last Saturday's Urban Tour of Homes in Tampa...

...poolside at Grand Central at Kennedy...

...behind the cabanas at Grand Central...

...inside the Box Factory Lofts in Ybor, converted from a cigar box factory. Great stained concrete floors...

...the bathroom in a $1.1 million unit at the Victory Lofts...

...and at Ventana. After the tour, a stop-off in South Tampa at Tun-Du-Ree -- no photo of the trailer with the magical Indian grill, but it's as good as they say.

Downtown Promises

The faded sign on the side of this building along First Avenue S says:

It's a Whole New Ballgame
Go Devil Rays"

It can barely be seen from the street, now blocked by a building in the next lot: a new condo.
A new sign of progress overshadows the old one, but will the new one follow the old?
