Hello all,
Looking for a little help as to neighborhoods to live and apartments to rent in Tampa. I am a single male 31 year old investment finance professional and have just accepted an offer to come and work in Tampa for an investment group. My office will be on West Kennedy in between West Shore and Dale Mabry. I know I won't get the urban lifestyle that I am used to after living in Miami, San Fran, London, and NYC. However, I love the water and would like to be in an area with convenience and easy walking distance to restaurants, bars, dry cleaners, etc. Plus, I want to be in an area where other young professionals live. I enjoy going out and meeting new faces. I have been told to only focus on Hyde Park.

Any thoughts?

Hyde park is definately your best bet. Most places are condos and you would have to rent privately.

I am a 27 year old single professional, I live in westshore/international plaza area and like it, but spend most of my time in south tampa/soho/hyde park.

If you want more urban- you might consider the channelside district, but it isn't quite as established as south tampa.

Thanks! I appreciate the insight. From what you said Channelside might be better if I was looking to buy a place. However, since I am going to be renting, Hyde Park seems to make most sense.

Yes, it sounds like you have gotten good advice. It's pretty rare on this forums to have someone's situation obviously fit a particular neighborhood, but I think you're one of them. Hyde Park is where you should look, and possibly Channelside or Palma Ceia.

For Hyde Park, do you recommend any particular apartment complexes or is rental housing mostly comprised of individually owned units which would require you to drive around and take note of for-rent signs?

I know this was 5 years ago, but now I found myself in a similar position as the OP. I'd also like to find an apartment in Hyde Park. Since I'll be new to the area, I'd like a place where lots of young people live with a pool and some social amenities. I looked into Visconti, but it had some really bad reviews and it sounds like there is a lot of construction in that area right now.

Not many red necks in the Hyde park area.

Is Post Rocky Point a good option? It looks like its a little more geographically separated, but cheaper.

The problem with those apartments as well as the Post properties is that there are young professionals and younger professionals, the apartments have both, the typical complain you hear is from older young professionals, mid thirties who don't want to frat house vibe that the twenty year olds bring, the apartments are set up for roommates they are 2/2 3/3 that's why you see the younger crowd.
