"We love South Tampa: It's a vibrant, active community and we're really excited about that part of town," said Bart French, vice president of investments at Post Properties. "SoHo is a great location for people who want to be able to walk out of their front door and go to shops and restaurants. We're trying to create something that fits into that walkable environment."

Post SoHo Square's location at 712 South Howard Avenue puts residents in close proximity to a variety of entertainment options. The nearby Hyde Park Village offers upscale shops, theaters, restaurants, and festivals, with the iconic Bayshore Boulevard just minutes from the property. By night, the neighborhood hosts a number of popular bars and lounges including Drynk, MacDinton's, and 717 South. Post SoHo Square is in close proximity to the University of Tampa, Raymond James Stadium, the Westshore Business District, and Tampa International Airport.

Situated along the renowned "Restaurant Row" that is home to more than 35 of Tampa's most celebrated and up-and-coming restaurants, Post SoHo Square experiences no shortage of culinary offerings. The iconic Bern's Steakhouse, known for its strip sirloins and wine selection that draw celebrity patrons, is a seven-minute walk from the property.

Also located along Howard Avenue are Green Lemon, offering upbeat Mexican fare; Daily Eats, a local favorite with a modern diner aesthetic; and Ciccio's / Water, a live music venue that also serves creative sushi rolls. And in Post SoHo Square's own ground floor restaurant space is AVA, a 5,600-square-foot indoor/outdoor restaurant featuring an "inspired-Italian" menu with farm-to-table ingredients, Neapolitan-style pizza, an Italian cocktail program, and a large wine selection overseen by joint partner and former Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon.

"We are excited to deliver Post SoHo Square to the vibrant SoHo District," said Rip Panos, vice president at Clark Florida Builders. "The neighborhood carries a rich history that continues to evolve and attract a diverse mix of young professionals and urban dwellers to the city's lively entertainment hub."

Post SoHo Square features a variety of floor plans, including studios and one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. Units average 880 square feet and include high-quality finishes with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and plank flooring. The property also features a resort-style pool, clubroom, and fitness center. A private parking garage is available to residents with access via Swann Avenue.
