Go inside the ongoing construction of the Patel Estate in Tampa (PHOTOS)

The grand Estate on the corner of Dale Mabry and Busch Boulevard has been under development for 12 years and under construction for nearly six years.

When complete, it will be the largest single-family home in Hillsborough County, sitting on 17 acres and spanning 60,000 air-conditioned square feet.

Dr. Kiran Patel and his wife, Pallavi, purchased for the property for $3.2 million in 2003. The project was designed by ROJO Architecture.

The estate includes a main house, a ballroom and three homes for each of his children. The outside of the buildings were all created to look similar on the outside, but inside are custom-designed to each of his children’s tastes and interests.

In addition, there are three guest cottages, a maintenance building. All told, the buildings, together, approximately 100,000 under roof.

The architecture was modeled after the palaces of Rajasthan, India.

    Wow is an understatement! I’ve know Dr. Patel for more than 20 years, and worked closely with him in the “early years”! Our entire community is thankful for his and Pallavi’s philanthropic support and leadership!

    Mrs and Mr Patel palace is a splendour of Indian architectural, as a next door neighbor I have seen this project take very small steps towards completion. I wonder if it’s on purpose. My background on Civil Engineering and Industrial Engineer absolutely drives me insane to see how each building is never completed as a whole i/o. DC Patel possibly should review this process

    I don’t know Patels featured here. But I am happy for his success and achievements.

    Best wishes to Dr Patel and family.
    Don’t let any impure soul’s feet enter your palace.
    Do maintain an army to protect your home!

    Judging from comments so far it seems like you are well known and admired popularly.
    Keep up your philanthropy!🙏🙏🙏🙏
    Jai Ho!

    Dr. Patel is a very well respected contributor of the community. I respect him and his family, but why build this compound on Dale Mabry? I don’t care about the aesthetics but it wouldn’t a lake in Lutz or Keystone offer a far bette environment. Or even up the eastern Seaboard? I just don’t get thE location. Oh well c’est la vie

      According to the team at ROJO who provided us with the tour, Patel already lives in the neighborhood and wanted to stay in his community that he was used to and loved, which is kind of sweet. 🙂

    There doesn’t seem to be any photos attached? I am sad to see that after living in Carrollwood since 1998 and watching its development, and being so very disappointed in how long its taken that now seeing photos would have been great but once again I’m denied 😢

      Hello, if you scroll to the bottom of the story and click on an image, the gallery should pop up with buttons to scroll through. If you are trying to view on mobile, I’ve heard it can be clunky, so I apologize for that (we’re working on it!) If you try on your computer, you should have better luck. Hope this helps!

    I hear an extended family will be living here? The doctor and he adult children and grandchildren?
    It makes me remember the show ,DALLAS ,and the Ewing Family all living at Southfork Ranch..
    Remember The Mother and Father, sitting at breakfast every day with their adult sons, and daughter-in-laws, and their grandchildren ..all bickering with each other getting served breakfast by the maids…I never felt envious of the adults still dealing with their siblings every day.
    .lol, hope this is different!

    I believe it will be completed and magnificent as the Patel family. I use to work not to far from there by the Social Security office and drive by just in awe and how exquisite the mansion would be when it would be finished. I am glad that we have a beautiful place to admire here in Tampa. Blessings to the Patel family so they can live in their beautiful home. Namaste 🌹

    I worked with Dr Patel in the 80’s at a local hospital and thought he was a great person and physician. I remember his first office on Florida Ave. He was fresh out of school.. I am happy for him as he has come a long way. I wish him and his family a long life in his palace.

    But when is it estimated to be completed? It never looks like there is anyone working there or that there has been much progress recently. Curious on status
