Since I’m getting so many hits about Donald Trump’s previously-announced Tampa condo project, I might as well link to the follow-up details about Trump Tower Tampa.

My speculation about The Donald’s halo effect echoes here:

Local condo developer Brooks Byrd, who is not involved in the project, thinks the market can bear the number of condos and the price range floated by his newest competitor.

“There are folks that invest in Trump … going from Trump project to Trump project,” Byrd said. “That name recognition certainly allows them to capitalize.”

Which means that, by virtue of Trump’s validation of the area by investment of his own money, the Bay area could expect a fresh influx of capital, in real estate and other sectors. We’ll see.

I’ll also note that, much as Robert speculated, accountability for this project is being delegated to Kelly Perdew, the latest winner on The Donald’s vanity TV show, “The Apprentice”. Doesn’t exactly bode well.

Is this the start of a Trump-ification of Tampa? What’s next, The Donald buying the local NFL franchise?
