Then & Now: LaMonte-Shimberg Corp. offices, 1970 and 2013

Published:

A March 15, 1970, Tampa Tribune story by real estate reporter Elaine Lane described the new LaMonte-Shimberg Corp. executive office as a Spanish-style building with a motif of continuous arches. “As the concept of urban planning begins to come of age, its influence will be felt by everyone who constructs a building for any purpose,” she wrote. She cited the 7345 Jackson Springs Road building as a “welcome example” of such. The design has survived, but the wooden fence is gone. Current tenants include Children’s Nest Day School and a unisex barbershop.
