West Tampa is the city’s newest Community Redevelopment Area, created in 2015. With its central location in the heart of the city between Downtown and the Westshore business district, West Tampa is poised for major redevelopment activity. As the West River Plan is implemented, public housing and the surrounding area will transition into a vibrant, diverse urban community open to the Hillsborough River.  Historic West Tampa’s combination of the old and the new, residential and commercial, and easy access to I-275 make it a prime location for investment.
