Warren Averett has relocated its Tampa office to the Sykes building in downtown Tampa. As of October 1, 2018, the Tampa team will operate out of a new, state-of-the-art workspace at 400 North Ashley Drive, Suite 700, Tampa, FL 33602.
“We are excited for this move,” said Richard Huckaby, Tampa Office Managing Member. “Moving to the Sykes building allowed us to make improvements and innovations to the new office space, and we are confident this will be a tremendous asset for the Tampa team and the Firm as a whole.”
The urban contemporary space will have an open and collaborative floor plan, quiet rooms to use for concentration and a centralized breakroom and lounge complete with a foosball table. The Sykes building is even closer to the heart of downtown than the previous office space, providing a valuable proximity to restaurants, attractions and events. It also touts a coffee shop and a restaurant on the ground floor of the building, a fitness center and executive offices and suites that tenants may use for hosting events.
The Sykes building was designed by celebrated architect Harry Wolf and first opened its doors in 1988. The 454-foot, 31-story building is widely recognized as a fixture of Tampa’s skyline. Its distinctive cylindrical shape was meant to symbolize a lighthouse—sending out a brilliant beacon of economic light from downtown Tampa. There are many reasons why businesses over the years have chosen to headquarter at Sykes, and with 2017’s renovations and redesigns, the list of benefits continues to grow.
