Join us for a presentation by CEO James Nozar of Strategic Property Partners, the real estate development joint venture between Cascade Investment, LLC, and Jeff Vinik. SPP owns or controls 60 acres in downtown Tampa, Florida. 

The phased development project intends to create an urban, mixed-use waterfront district consisting of office, residential, hotel, and retail uses. With LWR sitting on the I75 corridor and a part of the Tampa Bay region, this is an update you won’t want to miss.

Special Guest Phil Esposito of the Tampa Bay Lightning

We're very excited to announce we will have NHL Hall-of-Famer and Tampa Bay Lightning founder Phil Esposito join us to comment on the team's history and its recent successes. He currently serves the Lightning as vice president of corporate relations, and is also entering his 17th year as radio analyst for Lightning home games.

A former professional hockey legend, Esposito's spectacular 18-year playing career was highlighted by two Stanley Cup Championships with the Boston Bruins, in 1970 and 1972. He became the first player in NHL history to record 100 points in a season (1969-70). His 717 career goals place him fifth on the all-time list, and his 1,590 points are 10th all-time.
