Downtown Tampa skyscraper Element sells for $98 million
TAMPA — One of downtown Tampa’s tallest, sleekest and most recognizable skyscrapers was sold last week for $98 million, property records show.
Element, the 35-story apartment tower at 808 N Franklin St., was bought by a firm tied to Crescent Heights, a Miami-based luxury high-rise developer that also owns Tampa apartment complexes the Slade and Lexington Park.
The blue-glass, postmodern skyscraper shadows the popular Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. At 460 feet, it is the fifth-tallest building in Tampa, taller even than its towering twin, SkyPoint, nearby.
