NINE15 Luxury Apartments

NINE15 Luxury Apartments | Tampa, Florida

NINE15 is a 23-story residential tower in the urban core of downtown Tampa. The post-tension concrete structure consists of six floors of parking and 16 floors of apartments with four elevators. The entrance of the building is featured by a custom mosaic title installation, by artist Cero Design & Built, which spans six stories at the entrance to the building. Totaling 685,000-sq.-ft., the project includes 529 parking spaces, 362 apartments, and 9,300-sq.-ft. of retail shops. The 8th-floor Amenity Deck and Club Room includes an outdoor kitchen, bar, fire pit, bocce ball court, and 50 thousand gallon pool.

Project Scope

Prior to construction, during the demolition of an existing building on the site, an archaeological study was conducted on the entire city block. More than 500 feet of trenches were dug, and the soil was sifted for primitive tools, pottery, and other artifacts. The team worked closely with the city to mitigate delays in the schedule.

While constructing in downtown Tampa, the project team faced logistical challenges. Due to the configuration of the tower crane, the “L” design of the residential tower and the surrounding buildings, the tower crane was dismantled from a full height. This required removing traffic light arms and assembling a 550T dismantle crane in a closed downtown street. The crane was erected laying down and spanned a block and a half. Another challenging aspect of the project was completed on schedule after hurricane delays. On a tight schedule, DPR achieved a six-day structure pour cycle for the last ten 23,000-sq.-ft. floor plates.

DPR self-performed over 1,800,000-sq.-ft. of drywall on this project. Scope of self-performed work (SPW) also included framing, hanging, insulating, finishing, door frames and hardware, and specialties.
