The Reed at ENCORE!® Senior Residences

Now open, The Reed at ENCORE!, is a 7-story building containing 158 one- and two-bedroom apartment home residences for Tampa senior citizens ages 62+ and is the third multi-family building on the site.

The Reed and the overall ENCORE! community, are named in honor of the rich musical history of Downtown Tampa's Central Avenue in its heyday – where Ray Charles recorded his first song, the famous dance move and song "The Twist" were born, and legendary jazz artists Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday and Cab Calloway visited often to perform in what was known then as "Harlem South."
