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 private investment. As one of the few remaining areas in Tampa with affordable industrial land and space, the area continues to attract new residents and businesses.   Electric Supply recently completed a 35,000 square foot expansion and major infrastructure and streetscape improvements are underway on Lois Avenue. These projects are keeping redevelopment momentum moving forward.

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.
