Landmark Properties to Develop the Metropolitan at Tampa to Serve the University of South Florida

Landmark Properties, a fully-integrated real estate firm specializing in development, construction, investment management, and operation of high-quality residential communities, today announced plans for a 760-bed purpose-built student housing community called The Metropolitan at Tampa. The project, located at 2701 E. Fowler Avenue in Tampa, Fla., will serve students at the University of South Florida. Construction is slated to begin in June with the property opening to students in August 2024. 

The Metropolitan at Tampa offers student-driven design with high-quality amenities and premium modern finishes across several floor plans. Sizes range from studio to four-bedroom units. In total, the four-story residential community includes 276 units and 1,779-net-square-feet of ground floor retail space.

“The University of South Florida market has remained very attractive for Landmark,” said Wes Rogers, President and CEO of Landmark Properties. “We continue to see strong demand for well-located, highly-amenitized student housing near top-tier universities, and we are excited to deliver our third community near USF.”

The Metropolitan at Tampa will include popular amenities and high-end finishes students seek when looking for a home away from home. Residents will enjoy an expansive rooftop pool deck, ground floor courtyards, a fitness center, study and gaming lounges, and a variety of other amenities. Individual units come fully furnished with a complete appliance package (including washer and dryer) and are wired for high-speed internet and cable. Residents who drive will have access to the property’s 620-space covered parking deck.

The location, formerly a Quality Inn, is an easy walk to campus and the USF Botanical Gardens and is within walking distance of a variety of restaurants, convenience stores and retail outlets.

The University of South Florida is ranked #61 in Best Value Schools, according to U.S. News & World Report. USF is a public, urban research university with campuses in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Sarasota-Manatee, that attracts students from all 50 states and more than 140 countries who pursue undergraduate, graduate, specialist and doctoral degrees. Its Tampa campus, near The Metropolitan at Tampa, offers a large research university experience.
