Tampa Hits New Heights

This city has realized a major redevelopment milestone with the announcements that Tampa Heights will be home to Bank of America-developed condos and town homes and a Stetson University College of Law campus.

But here’s a scenario no one could have foreseen not long ago: competition. Three developers have submitted bids for the same city-owned property not far from the BOA and Stetson parcels. Plans range from office space to office-and-retail to more condos.

Obviously the Stetson deal has been catalytic. Florida’s oldest law school bought the old police station property from the city and paid for site preparation. Anyone regret not being able to give that land away to FAMU last year?
