Vintage: Gulf Life Tower through the years
The 441,000-square-foot building was built in 1966 for Gulf Life Insurance Co. and was Florida’s tallest building for the next five years. Gate Riverplace, a division of Gate Petroleum, bought it from Gulf Life in 1993 for $7.5 million.
It was announced on Nov. 30, 2016 that Lingerfelt CommonWealth Partners of Richmond, Va., purchased the 28-story building in 2014 for $29 million. It will continue to operate the building for the new owner, which it did not identify.
