Big SSH news!🗣Big news! We are excited to announce that La Segunda Bakery has acquired Faedo Family Bakery.

Located in Seminole Heights (5105 N. Florida Ave) the Faedo family has been (and still is!) a staple in the Cuban bread community. As a fellow “born and bread” multigenerational family, we are honored to carry on the tradition as well as extend our business in Seminole Heights.

And no! This does not nor will it ever affect our flagship Ybor location — we plan on staying there for another 107 years. 🙌

For now this spot will be bread-only, but we will keep everyone posted on further developments.

A HUGE thanks to all of our customers, family and friends for their unwavering support. We look forward to baking history in Seminole Heights! 🥖🌴

ALERT: Please stay away from the area of West Crest Avenue from the Hillsborough River to Florida Avenue . Last night, there was substantial flooding, as none of the storm sewers had yet been reconnected. There has been significant erosion in areas and simply put, it is hazardous. Please stay out of this area both on foot and in vehicles. Crews are on scene today to mitigate these issues, but we do not know how long they will take to complete that work. ... See MoreSee Less

Nelson Construction has botched this project from the beginning. Time to unload the project manager for someone who knows what’s going on. That pump running all night is well above the legal noise levels.

I’m so sorry for the folks dealing with this. It’s unacceptable what they’ve done to your homes.

I have a friend who lives on West crest just a few houses up from N River. This is been a CF for how long now? Nasty dirty noisy mess

Is this FDOT handy work??

Rick Fernandez

We have friends on Crest and there are cracks in their walls and apparently other neighbors have it to due to this CF.

Omg… what a mess

The pump was outside of our house for month spewing noise and exhaust. Its name? Silent Partner haha

This was on March 15th

Unfortunate….and going to get worse during the rainy season.

How did we go from no flooding in past years, to this? Is South Tampa flooding still? I can’t help but feel this is all to fix a problem they have had for many years and now SH is putting up with the repercussions.

Unreal. Someone should have been out there last night while happening

One of the workers said it was turning into a 4 year project. I really hope he was kidding but he wasn’t smiling….. such a nightmare.

I love on River heights and it floods worse than that in heavy rain? I guess we've been lucky.

HUH Old City Hall were is the new city hall just asking for a friend.

If anything, it should be taller/denser.

Yep just another problem we the tax payers are going to have to deal with! Our water pressure sucks now I can only image

This is great is any of it affordable

All of Florida Ave should be commercial frontage, move the lobby/leasing center to another side of the building

I suppose a denser urban area with great resources within and awesome transportation is the future. Just a thought though. We have a projected drinking water shortage. The county said last August in 7 years. Other than deep well injection of reclaimed water or just dumping directly into the Hillsborough and adding another deep source well inland there isn't any other plan. Both of those seem doomed to failure. Anyways just a thought. Water is life. Imagine in a tropical paradise dying of thirst.

Nice addition to Tampa Heights - turn that primarily vacant lot into an appropriate looking building with pretty decent density that will be along the future streetcar extension. A little more retail would be even better, but overall it is a huge improvement for the area and will help support more retail in The Heights / Franklin Ave.

As the president of the Tampa_Tampa Heights Civic Assoc I can tell you we have been very engaged with this developer. We supported the rezoning after they made changes at our request. Not 100% of what we requested, but a good compromise. We have also provided very specific feedback and guidance on the design. What is pictured here is not quite it. Don’t be afraid to reach out to us, too, on top of posting to Facebook, being that this is located in Tampa Heights! Our neighborhood associations need to communicate more frequently because we face similar issues and experiences.

The transparency & requests for feedback are refreshing.
