New Tampa Cultural Arts Center


This project is for the construction of a new 20,000 sq. ft. civic building, expandable to 30,000 sq. ft., to serve as a Cultural/Community Center as part of the 80.67 acres New Tampa Community Park. Location is at the intersection of Bruce B. Downs Boulevard and Hunter Green Drive.

The County-owned property is slated for a Public Private Partnership (P3) Development and subject to developer-provided funding of $2.02 mil at closing on August 2017.

The development is subject to City of Tampa and other regulatory agencies' approvals. As of June 2017, the City Council has approved rezoning of the property, which allows development to proceed. The project is now in the approval period, which includes rezoning, final site plan, engineering and construction documents.


  • The developer will provide a "pad ready" site in Spring 2019 with the requisite infrastructure, utilities and parking spaces for the Cultural/Civic Building
  • Projected completion date for the building pad is Winter 2019
  • County intends to construct the Cultural Arts center by Fall 2020
