The Loft opened in January 2021 with a roster of top-tier tenants within the real estate sector, including Gresham Smith, Compass, and Kast.

We look forward to welcoming our newest tenant, Greystar, to The Loft.”

The three-story, mixed-use building also features ground-floor retail and creative, boutique-style office space on the second and third floors.

Among the thoughtfully curated amenity roster is a resort style saltwater pool, 2-story transitional club room with co-working stations, a fully equipped fitness center, and many more. The upscale apartments are built above a flagship Whole Foods and 185,000 of retail space including REI, Sephora, Shake Shack, True Foods Kitchen.
“We are no strangers to the incredible Midtown Tampa development. As managers of Novel Midtown, we have seen the immense growth and success of this development, and we look forward as we continue to grow our partnership with Bromley,” said Lewis Stoneburner, Managing Director of FL Development and Construction at Greystar. “The Loft represents the best-in-class office space the Tampa market has to offer, and its top-tier roster of tenants – all within the real estate community – proves that. We couldn’t be more excited to make Midtown Tampa our official home for our Tampa employees.”
In addition to The Loft at Midtown Tampa, Bromley Companies recently formed a fully financed joint venture with Highwoods Properties Inc. for Midtown East, the newest Class A office building within the development. Designed by global architecture firm Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio, the project will be 18 floors with 430,000 square-feet and is expected to be complete by 2025. Upon completion of Midtown East, Bromley and Highwoods will jointly own 134,000 square feet, consisting of five floors of office (floors 10 through 15) and ground level retail.
