Midtown Tampa lures architecture firm Gresham Smith from Harbour Island – Tampa Bay Times

Midtown Tampa has inked another major tenant.

Renowned Nashville architecture firm Gresham Smith will relocate its Tampa office to the new $500 million development’s boutique office building, The Loft at Midtown Tampa, developer Bromley Companies announced Thursday.

Gresham Smith will move from an office on Harbour Island into an 18,000-square-foot space on the third floor of The Loft, which has 70,000 square feet in all. Other Loft tenants include Compass and KAST Construction.

In a statement announcing the move, the Bromley Companies said Gresham Smith would be considering “a new hybrid work approach” for its 70 employees, and the office would be “the first of its kind nationally for the company.”

“We’re thrilled with our new home in Tampa at The Loft at Midtown,” Gresham Smith CEO and chairperson Al Pramuk said in a statement. “As one of our largest offices, Tampa is a critical and growing market for our firm. This exciting new mixed-use development is centrally located in an up-and-coming district that offers a vibrant and pedestrian-friendly environment for our clients and employees.”

Gresham Smith’s design portfolio includes an array of aviation complexes, including facilities at Tampa International Airport, Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport and airports in Atlanta, Charlotte and Los Angeles. It’s also designed many health care facilities, parks and public spaces, mixed-use developments and more.

The Loft is one of several new offices buildings at Midtown. The 152,000-square-foot Midtown West has already inked deals to host a regional office of South State Bank and the global headquarters for staffing and professional services firm Kforce, one of Tampa Bay’s largest public companies, which announced its relocation from Ybor City earlier this year.

“The Loft is a gateway to the Midtown Tampa lifestyle,” Bromley Companies CEO Nick Haines said in a statement, “a great urban fit for Gresham Smith with next-gen creative open spaces and natural light, while incorporating first-class finishes, high-tech security and state-of-the-art technological capabilities.”
