TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Crescent Resources, LLC is starting work on a new 367-unit apartment community in Tampa, Fla. With dramatic views of the bay, the $68 million community at 319 Bayshore Blvd. will be named Circle Bayshore.  

"This extraordinary location is ideal for multifamily residential with its close proximity to the water, entertainment and dining venues," said Brian Natwick, president of Crescent Resources' multifamily division. "Circle Bayshore will offer its residents a unique lifestyle in an uncommon location with amazing amenities, first-class programming and high-quality interiors."

Circle Bayshore will feature thoughtfully designed studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans and include amenities such as a two-story health club and fitness center, resort-style swimming pool, an outdoor living area with grilling stations and a fire pit, a business center and clubroom. Typical of Crescent's other Circle communities, Circle Bayshore will incorporate many sustainable features and materials. The community has been designed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification requirements from the U.S. Green Building Council. The first apartments are expected to be complete in the first quarter of 2014.

MSA Architects of Miami designed the Spanish Eclectic eight-story structure. The building will surround a parking garage for residents and their guests.

The apartments will feature gourmet kitchens with granite countertops, undermount sinks, a prep island and stainless steel appliances. The bathrooms will be finished with granite countertops, custom wood cabinetry, ceramic tile floors, and tub and shower surrounds. High ceilings, spacious walk-in-closets and separate linen closets are also included. Each apartment will have a private balcony and full-size washer and dryer.

Circle Bayshore is being financed by an equity investment from Crescent Resources, construction financing from Capital One and mezzanine financing from Nationwide Real Estate Investments.

Moss & Associates of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is the general contractor. The civil engineer is King Engineering of Tampa, and the landscape architect is Land Resource Design Group, Inc., of Orlando, Fla.
