About Drew Park CRA

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.
