TAMPA, FLORIDA

AVE is excited to bring its best-in-class multifamily apartment living experience and flexible-stay, housing solution to the Tampa Bay area with AVE Tampa Riverwalk!

The brand new, 353-unit, eight-story, residential community boasts 25,000 square feet of resident amenity space, and offers a unique flexible-stay living solution in Downtown Tampa.

AVE Tampa Riverwalk is AVE’s first professionally managed property in the Tampa Bay area.

“We are focused on growing our AVE portfolio of first-class residential properties in key growth markets across the U.S. This acquisition represents the first of many new ventures in Tampa,” says Bradley Korman, co-CEO of the Philadelphia-area-based Korman Communities. “We are proud to have RXR as our partner on this venture, as our organizations are aligned on values and visions for the future.”

AVE will be introducing its furnished apartment service, offering flexible month-to-month leases to the Tampa market. All furnished apartments include a custom furniture package, a fully accessorized kitchen, a washer and dryer in residence, a linen package, and all utilities.

“We are a solution for individuals who need a comfortable, flexible place to stay for 30 days or more. The Tampa Bay metro area is one of the top five relocation destinations in the U.S. right now,” says Lea Anne Welsh, COO of Korman Communities and president of the AVE. “We can be a place for them to test drive the area or hang their hat until they purchase a home.”

AVE also will bring its best-in-class multifamily apartment living experience, which is designed to deliver the ultimate carefree lifestyle and a strong sense of community.

AVE Tampa Riverwalk features a variety of apartment floorplans ranging from studio to three-bedroom featuring contemporary amenities including chef-inspired kitchens boasting stainless steel appliances, 42” wood cabinets, quartz countertops, and tile backsplash, sustainable wood-inspired flooring, abundant closet space, and spa-inspired bathrooms featuring showers with glass doors or deep-soaking tubs and tile-surround, and lighted bathroom mirrors, Smart thermostats, and keyless entry. Select apartments feature private, exterior entrances, soft-close cabinetry, movable kitchen islands, and large patios or balconies.

All residents enjoy complimentary access to unprecedented, on-demand amenities featuring a palm-tree lined pool courtyard with lounge areas and outdoor kitchen, a dynamic rooftop lounge boasting a fully equipped kitchen, fire pit, comfortable seating, and breathtaking views of Tampa, a 24/7 state-of-the-art fitness center featuring top-of-the-line cardio and strength equipment and on-demand fitness programming, a Zen yoga/stretch room, a spacious resident lounge boasting a TV viewing area, a fully equipped kitchen, and outdoor patio with comfortable seating, a 24/7 business lounge featuring hot beverage bar, executive conference and meeting rooms available for reservation, and business center with computer and print services, comfortable flex work spaces throughout the community, a pet spa, EV charging stations, bike storage, and Amazon Hub lockers.

AVE’s professional Resident Services team is on site seven days a week to assist with day-to-day living needs.

“We want to ensure our residents are comfortable and feel taken care of,” says Welsh. “Our experienced, friendly team is on site every day to provide a quality living experience and a sense of community through concierge support, events, and partnerships.”

AVE Tampa Riverwalk also boasts 12,000-square-feet of retail space, with the goal to bring six exciting dining and fitness concepts to the neighborhood and ultimately offer more convenience amenities for residents.
