Canvas Gas Worx is a 79-unit industrial chic city home community at the crossroads of Tampa’s most exciting neighborhoods, Ybor City, Tampa Heights and Downtown. Located adjacent to the master planned Gas Worx redevelopment, townhouse units will be 2,100 to 2,400 square feet with rooftop terraces and community green space. The industrial style architecture is influenced by Ybor City warehouses and factories that have been converted to artist studios, lofts, and maker’s spaces.
Ybor City was founded in the 1880s by cigar manufacturers and was populated by thousands of immigrants, mainly from Cuba, Spain and Italy. The cigar industry ignited a plethora of opportunity for Ybor City. The lack of transportation in the 1800’s created the necessity for walkable communities that coupled with the prosperity Ybor experienced at that time created what is now known today as one of the nations most notorious historic districts. All over the country we are experiencing an urban renaissance, citizens are choosing to move closer to the urban core and searching for vintage neighborhoods enriched with character. The artist community has made Ybor a vibrant place to live, work, and play. The Gas Worx master development is revitalizing the Ybor City lifestyle while paying homage to its deep cultural and artistic roots.
