Water Street Tampa made the news twice last week; and it should be no surprise. The $3.5 billion mega-development – that spans 56 acres and includes nine million square feet of new commercial, residential, educational, entertainment, cultural and retail space – is the first of it’s kind smart district that boasts unmatched connectivity.

As the technology innovation partner on the project, WhiteSpace has teamed with GigaMonster and Strategic Property Partners (“SPP”), the projects development company, to launch a Universal Access Network (“UAN”).

“GigaMonster’s UAN allows people who live, work, visit and study at Water Street Tampa to stay connected on their own private network as they seamlessly move throughout the community.” – Lee Schaffler, Chief Portfolio Officer at SPP

The UAN is just one (really innovative) example of how Water Street Tampa transcends the way cities harness the power of technology to improve life for its community.

Water Street Tampa is in a class by itself. Follow the links below to learn how WhiteSpace guided the master technology plan within the smart district.
