Central Park Community Redevelopment Area

Boasting great views of the Downtown skyline and convenient access to Tampa’s urban job center, Ybor City and the Channel District, Central Park is emerging with new residences, businesses opportunities and great recreational amenities. At the mixed-use Encore development, the Trio apartment complex opened and Reed apartment complex is nearing completion. To the immediate west, the redevelopment of Perry Harvey, Sr. Park is imminent. By blending the neighborhood’s incredibly rich cultural history with the best principles of sustainable urban design, Encore’s distinctive character is igniting the rebirth of the Central Park neighborhood.
