Water Street Tampa has become the first neighborhood in the world to achieve WiredScore’s SmartScore Neighborhood Pre-Certification

Water Street Tampa is First SmartScore Neighborhood in the World

Water Street Tampa, the 56-acre mixed-use development in Downtown Tampa, has become the first neighborhood in the world to achieve WiredScore’s SmartScore Neighborhood Pre-Certification. It’s also the world’s first WELL Pre-certified Community and was recently named one of Time’s “World’s Greatest Places” for 2023. 

Developer Strategic Property Partners partnered with WiredScore to pilot the new community-wide certification that sets the global standard for technology in the built environment on a neighborhood level.

SmartScore recognizes neighborhoods that have developed technologically advanced district-wide infrastructure ensuring strong, foundational, digital connectivity. WiredScore evaluated Water Street Tampa on everything from its digital infrastructure to its neighborhood programming.

Water Street Tampa was also commended for its expandable digital connectivity, air quality monitoring, protection of critical systems, indoor and outdoor mobile coverage, and neighborhood power resiliency. The strong connectivity and latest technologies implemented in the fabric of Water Street Tampa are must-haves for tenants.
