Leading Tampa-based real estate development firm Strategic Property Partners, LLC ("SPP") today announces Asher, a dynamic, highly amenitized new apartment tower at 1050 Water Street in Water Street Tampa, the 56-acre neighborhood transforming downtown Tampa into a walkable urban experience. In addition to offering a collection of rental residences, SPP has partnered with Method Co., the celebrated Philadelphia-based hospitality company, to bring Tampa the first Florida location of their high-design extended-stay concept, ROOST Apartment Hotel, at Asher. Pre-leasing at Asher will begin in January with move-ins slated for March, and ROOST Tampa will open in the building in Spring 2022.

Designed inside and out by celebrated architecture firm Morris Adjmi Architects, the building offers a nod to Tampa's industrial history with oversized divided-light windows that maximize natural light. Asher's luxury rental residences will be located on the top 15 floors of the building, while ROOST Tampa will occupy the first six residential floors. Asher will offer 490 thoughtfully designed rental residences ranging from studio to two-bedroom homes.

The development's curated amenity collection is designed to foster community and encourage socialization among residents, and includes Water Street Tampa's largest pool deck, a dynamic rooftop space complete with cabanas, outdoor kitchens, an indoor-outdoor bar and an entertainment lawn. Inside, the expansive amenity suite includes a state-of-the-art fitness center, entertainment space, a screening lounge and a co-working space with private conference rooms.

Blending the comfort and practicality of an apartment with the amenities and concierge services of a boutique hotel, ROOST Tampa will provide an elevated hotel option for those looking to stay longer in Tampa. ROOST Tampa will offer 97 studio, one- and two-bedroom homes, as well as select co-living units. Offering a move-in ready experience, ROOST Tampa homes will feature fully equipped kitchens, modern appliances and furniture inspired by the rich heritage of Latin America that is prevalent throughout Tampa's neighborhoods, and pieces from designers including Beni Rugs, Luteca, Menu, and Gubi.

Method Co. will bring their award-winning hospitality expertise to Asher, where they will service the building's extensive suite of amenities, including a 24-hour concierge for all residents at Asher. Residents will enjoy a world-class hospitality-oriented experience from the industry leader known for a hands-on, detail-oriented approach.
