St. Croix Capital grows Tampa portfolio with Ybor City acquisition, reveals new-to-market tenant Celebrity Cigars

St. Croix Capital Companies, an Austin-headquartered commercial real estate firm and its Tampa-based affiliate, Cowboys and Pirates, has acquired real estate, in Ybor City.

Located at 1517 E. 5th Avenue, two blocks from Centro Ybor, across from the Centro Ybor Garage, the property will be the new home of Celebrity Cigars and Cigar TV.

Owned by the Mobley family, the company is historically known for its hand-rolled cigars with roots in tobacco farming and warehouses in Kentucky, according to a statement.

This new location will serve as headquarters for Celebrity Cigars, which signed a long-term lease for the 2,800-square-foot building, the statement said.

The Ybor City acquisition follows St. Croix’s recent entry into the Tampa market, with the purchase of fully leased 303 N. Rome Avenue, in North Hyde Park.

Scheduled for a September 2023 grand opening, Celebrity Cigars will feature a retail store, offer Ybor City historical tours, host cigar-pairing special events and house a production facility for the company’s “Cigar TV” channel, distributed globally on all major streaming platforms and services.
