A waterfront park with a beer garden and pop-up restaurants in shipping containers will open at Channelside Bay Plaza later this year, creating a new destination for downtown residents and visitors on the southern end of Tampa's urban core.

Tampa-based EWI Construction has filed permits with the city to begin construction on the park, which replaces a 27,500-square-foot building that once housed restaurants Hablo Taco and Thai Tani. The park is 42,400 square feet — nearly 1 acre.

The pop-up restaurants are slated to include everything from coffee and doughnuts to tacos and smoothies, according to the construction documents, and should be open by late summer.
