Tampa Downtown Partnership

The Tampa Downtown Partnership is "the keeper of the flame" for downtown Tampa. The Partnership has a memory of downtown's past and a vision for its future, and actively identifies the steps needed to accomplish this vision of downtown as an active city center, bustling with people. The Partnership has benchmarked the best practices of other successful downtowns and created new initiatives for downtown Tampa.

The Partnership has played a major role in securing the residential development popping up all over downtown. Now, the Partnership is working to secure amenity retail including convenient grocery stores, drugstores, retail boutiques, as well as cafes, restaurants and culturally oriented uses for downtown. Additionally, it is pursuing the vision of North Franklin Street as an urban entertainment district complete with nightclubs and trendy restaurants. One of the Partnership's most recent initiatives is Downtown 360, the "downtown developments studio" in which potential investors and the general public can come to learn about the changes taking shape downtown.

A successful downtown depends on access, including inviting entrances, affordable and convenient parking, pedestrian and transit options. In conjunction with partners in the transportation field, the Partnership assists in the implementation of programs that will improve access, mobility and parking options for downtown constituents.

The Partnership keeps the community informed about what is happening downtown including community events, transportation updates and alerts, and development news through the Partnership's three electronic publications - the Monday Morning Memo, Weekly What's Happening, and InTown Tampa email newsletters.
