TAMPA - In this week's Tampa Bay Business Journal report, editor Alexis Muellner unveils the new Patel mansion renderings, discusses code camp and bar camp, and why some businesses say it is important to change their name.
Dr. Kiran Patel and his wife Pallavi are building a $63,310-square-foot mansion on White Trout Lake in Carrollwood. The $6.5 million mansion will have 12 bedrooms, 12 full bathrooms and 8 1/2 bathrooms.
Their 17-acre compound also will include two smaller single-family homes, three guest homes, plus quarters for staff and a 3,600-square-foot maintenance building.
Rojo Architecture just released the first artistic renderings of the property, which you can see by watching the video clip to the left.
Two major gatherings for members of the Tampa Bay technology industry are merging into one event.
Roughly 1,000 attendees are expected at BarCamp/CodeCamp Tampa 2012 at the University of South Florida on October 13.
Code Camp is focused on the Microsoft developer community while Bar Camp is geared toward technology and "new media" professionals.
A number of Tampa Bay area companies have changed their names.
Why? Despite the potential cost or confusion a name change can produce, a new name can help the company expand into areas their previous name did not reflect.
