Juneau Construction Completes Tampa Projects

Juneau Construction Company, one of the fastest growing construction firms in the Southeast, has completed two inaugural projects in Tampa: Lector 85 mixed-use multifamily in Ybor City, which is now leasing with its final phase of units opening this month, and the renovation of Norwegian Cruise Lines’ Creative Studios, which was completed in late 2020.

Juneau partnered with Milhaus to bring Lector 85 to Ybor City. Located at 2409 East 2nd Ave off Adamo Drive in Tampa, the $39 million mixed-use project consists of two four-story buildings totaling 254 units. The north building houses apartments and studio lofts wrapped around a 285-space precast parking deck. The south building includes resident amenities such as fitness center, outdoor pool, lobby and storage rooms, along with ground level retail space. Design was provided by Curts Gaines Hall Jones Architects.

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) secured Juneau for the renovation of its Tampa training center. The buildout, completed in late 2020, consisted of office and administrative spaces, music rehearsal rooms with recording studios, two large training rooms, and a unique area where entertainers can practice nightly shows, all utilized by NCL’s entertainment staff. The $3.3 million project was designed by Baker Barrios Architects and totaled 35,000 square feet.

Atlanta-based and woman-owned, Juneau Construction Company is led by former Tampa residents, Nancy and Les Juneau, who launched their newest office in Tampa in 2019 to help expand its Central Florida presence. The company also has a South Florida office in Miami.

“Having previously worked in Tampa, Nancy and I were already familiar with the construction market,” said Les Juneau, president of Juneau Construction Company. “This, coupled with multiple Juneau employees expressing interest in moving to Tampa led to the opening of our Tampa Bay office in 2019. The timing of the office opening couldn’t have aligned better as we look to expand our Florida presence with Student Housing, Multifamily and Higher Education projects coming to fruition throughout Central Florida. We couldn’t be more excited that we have two Juneau veterans to lead this charge in Tampa with Matt Algeo who serves as Director of Field Operations and CJ Britt, Florida’s Director of Preconstruction.”

“The Tampa market has shown unprecedented growth,” Juneau added. “We see great opportunity throughout Tampa Bay and the surrounding region. We’re very excited to be a part of the community and we look forward to developing our business in Central Florida.”

Since its inception, Juneau Construction Company has built a solid reputation in the adaptive re-use, commercial office, higher education, hospitality, mixed-use, multifamily, senior living and student housing markets throughout the Southeast.


Founded in 1997, Atlanta-based Juneau Construction Company is one of the fastest-growing construction firms in the Southeast with approximately $250 million in annual revenue. It employs more than 175 employees at three offices in Atlanta, Miami and Tampa. Juneau is a Top 50 Southeast regional contractor and among the premiere builders of best in class projects throughout the Southeast.
