Mayor Buckhorn to Attend Groundbreaking for The Sanctuary at Alexandra Place

Exclusive Media Invite for The Sanctuary


February 19, 2019 (Tampa, FL) – Local developers Taub Entities are proud to announce that Mayor Buckhorn will attend the groundbreaking for The Sanctuary at Alexandra Place on February 26, 2019, from 10:00 am – 11:00 am. This will be the last high-rise groundbreaking ceremony of the Mayor’s tenure.

Once completed, The Sanctuary will be a 17-story opulent high-rise condominium tower on iconic Bayshore Boulevard with fifteen private residences. With only one residence per floor and private elevator access, The Sanctuary gives residents penthouse-style living on every level and is the only high-rise in Tampa Bay to offer the exclusivity of owning the entire floor.

Smith & Associates Real Estate, the exclusive listing agent for the development, began sales in June of 2018 and said home buyers were taking advantage of the pre-construction customizations offered by the development team at Taub Entities.  Design adaptations were made to include a dedicated den space with 3,884 square feet and a 7,345 square foot two-story home. Place Architecture combined two residences to create the two-story design, which is unique to The Sanctuary and unavailable in any other Tampa Bay high-rise condominium tower.

“The start of construction and early sales success shows that buyers truly want intimate condominium living with high-end finishes,” says Dave Traynor, Vice President of Smith & Associates Real Estate.

New York-based, Plaza Construction, is spearheading construction of the estimated $40 million high-rise tower. The Sanctuary will include 15 grand condominiums with homes ranging from 3,884 square feet to 7,539 square feet and prices starting at $2.53 million. Architecturally striking, with an elegant curved tower design, residents will have two large waterfront terraces with frameless glass to enjoy the balcony view.

“With no shared walls or hallways, we offer the privacy of single-family living with the unsurpassed views and amenities that only a boutique high-rise on Bayshore Boulevard can offer, ” says Brian Taub, CEO of Taub Entities.

Residents at The Sanctuary will enjoy lavish bespoke amenities and an ample array of VIP concierge services. The amenity deck, aptly named The Retreat, is nestled next to Fred Ball Park’s tree canopy and will offer private poolside cabanas, a firepit, a secluded hot tub area, and an outdoor kitchen. VIP services, like valet parking, package deliveries to residences, on-site notary services, cable and wifi access in common areas, and daily valet garbage and recycling pickup will be available to all homeowners. Private enclosed garages, residence generator capabilities, and the ability to select interior finishes that are beyond the market standards set the Sanctuary apart from any other condominium home currently on the market in Tampa Bay.
