The Upcoming Ventures of Tampa Construction Agenda:

Tampa’s flat-lined condo market, started to become a bit lively, showing some signs of life. Yes, three huge construction plans are in the execution stage and are on the way. One is the twin 27-story towers north of the St. Pete Times Forum. The others are needle-shaped towers more than 500 feet tall east of the city’s Whiting Street parking garage.

The Federal Aviation Administration already said that the buildings will pose in such a way that no hazards to private planes flying in and out of nearby Peter O. Knight Airport. So board chairman Al Austin, an office building developer, asked how soon the projects might begin with housing sales in a prolonged slump.”I’m not quite sure of the plans,” said Seth Schimmel, an attorney for Channelside Development LLC, which is proposing the twin condo towers, called Crescent Heights. “I can’t say if it will be six months or.…”

Attorney Keith Bricklemyer, representing developers of Whiting Tower and Jefferson Tower said, “It depends on how soon the housing market picks up”.

As planned earlier, the Tampa’s new construction projects will be extremely stylish, thinner and taller as well. Each of them is planned to built on a quarter of a square block — Whiting Tower on a corner of Whiting and Morgan streets, and Jefferson Tower on a corner of Whiting and Jefferson. The spires of each tower would reach up more than 550 feet. Downtown Tampa’s tallest building, 100 North Tampa, is 601 feet. Nearby, the Bank of America Tower tops out at 589 feet.

Economy Appears Headed for Strong Finish for 2010

WASHINGTON (AP) – Dec. 3, 2010 – The economy is showing new life in the final months of the year.

Factories are busier, construction spending is up, and auto sales are rising. And on Wednesday the stock market had its best day since September after a report that the private sector hired the most workers in three years.

The Dow Jones industrial average jumped more than 2 percent, enough to erase nearly two weeks of losses. Analysts said investors concluded that a stronger job market would support higher stock prices.

“The economy is starting to show better overall momentum,” said Brian Bethune, an economist at IHS Global Insight. “There’s a steady improvement in the overall tone.”

A private trade group said U.S. factory output grew for the 16th straight month in November as auto sales rebounded and businesses invested more in industrial machinery.

The Institute for Supply Management said its index of manufacturing activity came in at 56.6 for November. Any reading above 50 indicates growth. The October figure was 56.9. At the depths of the recession, it was closer to 30.

And a new survey by the Federal Reserve finds that most of the nation – 10 of its 12 regions – is growing economically. Only two regions, those around Philadelphia and St. Louis, report that business conditions are mixed.

Automakers are behind much of the growth in manufacturing. Ford, General Motors and Chrysler all reported double-digit sales increases for November. The news is particularly welcome for GM, which just returned as a public company.

The positive economic news comes on top of other signs that Americans are increasingly willing to spend money, raising hopes for the holiday shopping season. Measures of spending, consumer confidence and personal incomes are all up.

Research firm comScore Inc. said people spent more than $1 billion online on the Monday after Thanksgiving, 16 percent more than last year and the first time so-called Cyber Monday has ever hit that milestone.

The Dow closed at 11,255, its best finish since Sept. 1 and about 200 points shy of its highest close since the financial meltdown in the fall of 2008.

Investors were mostly responding to strong manufacturing data out of China and a report showing that small U.S. companies hired the most workers in three years. ADP Employer Services said employment at private companies jumped by 93,000 in November, the largest increase since November 2007 – right before the recession began.

Small businesses, which have struggled to get credit since the recession, had the biggest gains.

While some economists cautioned against reading too much into the ADP report because it has frequently diverged from the government’s employment figures, it was enough to raise economists’ hopes that the Labor Department’s November jobs report, due Friday, will be strong. Bethune said his firm now forecasts that 180,000 jobs were added in November, up from a previous estimate of 150,000.

There’s even improvement in the troubled construction industry. The Commerce Department said spending rose in October for the second straight month, mostly because of a jump in spending on home improvement. Spending on new home construction fell.

One CEO, Daryl Dulaney of Siemens Industry Inc., reported strong demand for industrial equipment from automakers, railroad companies and renewable-energy firms. Siemens just took a $466 million order from Amtrak for 70 electric locomotives.

Auto companies are also ordering industrial automation equipment to be more productive, Dulaney said.

The manufacturing report showed that new orders and production also grew, but at a slower pace. Factory employment grew for the 12th month in a row, although slightly slower than in October.

At the same time, American exports are being helped by a cheaper dollar. The institute’s export index grew, but not as quickly as in October.

“Manufacturing continues to benefit from the recovery in autos, but those industries reliant upon housing continue to struggle,” said Norbert Ore, chairman of the ISM’s survey committee. The ISM is a trade group of purchasing executives.

The institute surveys purchasing managers at about 350 companies around the country to compile the index.

The Time Has Come to Own a Tampa Home

Well, the time has come to vacate your rental houses and get into your dream homes. You don’t want to be a tenant anymore and this is the right time to own your dream home in Tampa. Of course you may question me, how can you say surely that this is the right time to make an investment in Tampa real estate? Certainly there are solid reasons to state. Most of us fail to predict the real estate conditions accurately. That’s why many good real estate deals go out of the hands. But I can give you a clear idea on how to forecast the real estate fluctuations. One of the best ways to find is to compare whether buying a home is finally cheaper than renting a place to live on. And the courtesy of decline in home prices and mortgage rates have apparently made the Tampa real estate market, a boon to the buyers.

The recent Barron article highlights that, “The math for home buyers looks pretty good. Someone buying a new $225,000 home with a $200,000 loan at 4.5% would pay about $1,000 a month in mortgage principal and interest. Add in taxes and upkeep and the costs still look appealing compared with renting, especially with the tax benefits.” And the prices are still expected to experience a downfall which is absolutely fruitful news for the people who are looking forward to buy homes in Tampa.
