Drew Park Community Redevelopment Area

Drew Park Community Redevelopment Area

Drew Park

Drew Park's close proximity to Tampa International Airport, Hillsborough Community College, professional sports and recreational facilities, and major employers, ideally positions the area for redevelopment activity. As one of the few remaining areas within Tampa with relatively affordable industrial land and space, the area continues to attract residents and businesses. Courtesy Automotive Group opened a new Hyundai showroom and Electric Supply completed a 35,000 square foot facility expansion.  The Drew Park Streetscape & Beautification Master Plan is being used to guide improvements to enhance the appearance of the neighborhood.  These projects are keeping redevelopment momentum moving forward and encouraging private investment.

Streetscape and Beautification Master Plan

The Drew Park Streetscape and Beautification Master Plan will guide future public realm improvements for years to come. The plan was approved by the Community Redevelopment Agency on November 10, 2011, and was the result of a collaborative effort of the Drew Park CRA Community Advisory Committee, Drew park stakeholders, City staff, and consultants from Bayside Engineering and David Conner & Associates.

The goal for the Master Plan is to create a new identity and sense of place for the Drew Park community. The main features include community gateway markers, streetscape amenities, park and open space, public art, and preserving Drew Park's history.
