SPP Opens Thousand & One Office Tower in Tampa

Tampa-based real estate development firm Strategic Property Partners (SPP) has opened Thousand & One, a 20-story, trophy office tower in downtown Tampa.

Designed by COOKFox, the tower includes 375,000 square feet of office space and 12,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. Features of the tower include floor-to-ceiling windows, flexible floorplans and landscaped terraces with access to the outdoors. The building will be programmed with neighborhood-serving retail on the ground floor, provide access to the attractions along Water Street’s thoroughfare and feature a public plaza with landscaping, benches and an interactive art installation.

“With the opening of Thousand & One, we’ve achieved our vision of creating a best-in-class office space that will give companies in Tampa room to expand and national companies a reason to relocate,” said David Bevirt, executive vice president of corporate leasing and strategy at SPP. “We’ve already had strong interest, but now, coming out of the pandemic, we’re seeing increased momentum as companies look to upgrade their offices for the post-Covid work environment. Employees and employers alike are seeking healthier work spaces that focus on the well-being of tenants and Thousand & One is leading the charge to define that experience in Tampa.”
