This development is the final one across from Margaret Pace Park. From the bay front park’s vantage point, looking west, there will be an incredible view of 8 major towers (The Grand, Opera Tower, Bay Parc Plaza, 1800 Club, Quantum North and South, Paramount Bay, and now the new On the PArk development). The bay front neighborhood, as recently as four years ago, had little activity outside of Tibor Hollo’s projects, but now it will become one of the most impressive couple of blocks in the entire city. Interestingly enough, it seems that On the Park Properties had begun acquiring units in the existing property under the entity Bad Ass LLC.–not exactly professional, but given the excellent location of the development, the move was, as the name would state, bad ass indeed.
