Alliance Residential Company to develop 325-unit apartment complex near Westshore Marina District.

Alliance Residential Company, an Arizona-based multifamily developer, has purchased a 12-acre parcel at 5105 W Tyson Ave. in Tampa for $15.75 million. The property is located just south of Gandy Boulevard, adjacent to the Westshore Marina District.

Alliance will develop a luxury multifamily community on the parcel, called Broadstone Westshore, which will include 285 traditional apartments, 40 two-story rental townhomes, a parking garage, a pool, a courtyard, a clubhouse and a dog park. The property has sightlines over Old Tampa Bay, Florida’s largest open water estuary.

Executive Managing Directors Mark Eilers and Ed Miller of Colliers represented the seller in the transaction.

This sale represents the real demand in the Tampa market for luxury apartments. This area of town is seeing a revitalization, with the Westshore Marina District and the retail, restaurants and high-end residential development underway here. This parcel offers an ideal opportunity for an upscale multifamily community like the one Alliance has planned.
