Vinik takes charge of Channelside

Published:   |   Updated: August 19, 2014 at 05:37 PM

Jeff Vinik is officially in charge of Channelside Bay Plaza.

Executives with his development team signed paperwork on Tuesday that makes him the overarching tenant of the property, according to Tampa Bay Lightning spokesman Bill Wickett. That followed a long and tangled legal drama.

Vinik, the owner of the Lightning, has not detailed specific plans for the property, other than to meet with shop owners, neighbors and officials with the Tampa Port Authority about ways to make the area more connected.
