Trump Tower Tampa is the former name of an unfinished (and possibly abandoned) condominium project located in downtown Tampa, Florida. The building would be visible from the end of Bayshore Boulevard and Tampa General Hospital on the Hillsborough River waterline.[citation needed] Ground was broken on March 2, 2006,[1] and in July 2007 the foundation footings were drilled.[citation needed] Brownstone Partners Tampa, an investment group led by Robert Owens of O,R&L Facility Services, acquired the property on June 20, 2011.[citation needed]

Overview[edit]

As of March 9, 2007, the fence surrounding the construction site was taken down and some of the construction equipment was gone; although two cranes remained.[citation needed] On March 9, 2007 the developers acknowledged in a press release that, "Cost overruns won't be the only obstacles Related [the development company] faces. Soil issues at the site, unpaid contractors and a general perception from the community that the 52-story luxury condominium tower will never be built also stand in the way of making the tower a success."[2]

On May 30, 2007, Donald Trump demanded his name be removed from the project, and sued the developers for over $1 million in unpaid license fees for the use of the Trump name. On the same day, the phone at the developer's office was listed as disconnected.[3]

After acquiring the property in a June 2011 deal, Robert Owens told the Wall Street Journal that he plans to build a mixed-use complex with retail, offices and a hotel or condominiums there.
