Have you ever wanted to know what’s behind the gates at Harbour Island? This isn’t a community where you can follow someone else in through an open gate. This neighborhood has guards at the 2 gates 24 hours a day. So, follow me and let’s go take a look
But first, a little background: Harbour Island was originally known as Seddon Island. It was sold to the Beneficial Land Corporation in 1979 for residential, office and retail building. The first phase of development dates to 1985. This makes HI one of the newer South Tampa communities.
Today Harbour Island is home to luxury homes, condos, and townhomes, as well as apartments. Where you live on HI is identified by where you are in relation to the gates. There is luxury housing in front of the gates, as well as behind the gates .
Harbour Island is just south of downtown, yet slightly removed. There are only 2 ways on to HI- the bridge at Franklin and the bridge at Beneficial. HI residents enjoy the best of both worlds- the proximity to all of Tampa’s downtown activities and amenities without being in the midst of the hustle-bustle.
Harbour Island residents enjoy the best of both worlds. Residents can be off HI in minutes enjoying the restaurants and museums along the Riverwalk, events at Amalie Arena (home of the Stanley Cup winning Lightning), and the numerous parks along the way. Some favorite restaurants and museums include the Tampa Bay History Center, Glazer Children’s Museum, Tampa Museum of Art, the Columbia, Malio’s, Ulele, Armature Works. But HI residents don’t even need to leave the island to find great food and entertainment, not to mention spectacular sunsets. Check out American Social, Jackson’s, and Cafe Dufrain right on the water on HI. My absolute favorite thing is to hire an e-boat for a few hours and see our beautiful city from the water. This is a great activity to share with friends and family.
