Vinik closes on $1.7 million property deal

Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik cemented control over more property north of the Forum by closing a deal to acquire the last three homes standing in the area along Nebraska Avenue at the corner of Cumberland Avenue.

Together with a purchase of a small parcel behind the homes last December, the price totalled $1.7 million for three homes and a small apartment building, a deal first reported in the works by The Tampa Tribune in June.

Companies under Vinik’s control have acquired more than two dozen parcels around the Forum, and Vinik just this week prevailed in court with a deal that will give him control of the Channelside Bay Plaza on Channelside Drive.
