Encore

View of new apartment building in Encore Brownfields Redevelopment project

Cardno incorporated sustainable design principals, positioning Encore to be one of the first LEED-ND sites in the State of Florida.

When the Tampa Housing Authority and Banc of America formed a public private partnership (Central Park Development Group, LLC) to redevelop Central Park Village, their goal was to revitalize a historic area that was in need of reinvestment. The Encore project is a 28-acre master planned development between downtown Tampa and Ybor City that has led to the redevelopment of several city blocks as a LEED certified, mixed-use, transit oriented community. 

Cardno served as the prime consultant/program manager providing civil engineering, planning, landscape architecture, and brownfield consulting services to facilitate redevelopment of this historically significant, but blighted area. As a single source for these services, Cardno provided an integrated approach to this complex, multi-faceted project. 

Cardno’s integrated approach allowed the project team to sequence the infrastructure design as needed to allow site construction to proceed on schedule. The final phase of the project involved construction services. Cardno will work closely with all parties to achieve the owner’s vision of a mixed-use residential and commercial development in an important area of the city. 

Cardno has provided civil engineering and landscape architectural services for 4-multi-family and elderly apartment sites, totaling over 660 units within Encore; including a Duke Energy Power Plant and Chilled Water Site that supports the entire development.
