Harbour Island is made up of private residential areas with single family homes, condos and townhouses. Condos and townhomes are the predominant housing choice on the Island.
Harbour Island was once known as Seddon Island. Named after W.L. Seddon a chief engineer for the Seaboard Air Line Railway. His plan for a new port for the city was approved in 1906 and his company dredged a channel and built the port. The island was later sold in 1979 to Beneficial Land Corporation who developed the Island into an active waterfront community with offices, restaurants, and storefronts. The island was later linked to downtown between 1985 and 1999 by an automated tram called the Harbour Island People Mover.
The island is located just south of Downtown Tampa and Channelside. It is just minutes away from Lee Roy Selmon Expressway, and the Interstates. It's just 10 miles from the Tampa International Airport.
