Governor to make jobs announcement in Tampa Wednesday
Governor Rick Scott will visit Tampa Wednesday to make a "major jobs announcement," according to release from his office.
The release gives no other details other than the time of the news conference, 2:30 p.m., and the location, 6700 Lakeview Center Drive. That's the location of a nearly 200,000-square-foot office building near the intersection of interstates 4 and 75.
The Lakeview Center web site indicates it is a three-story building initially constructed in 1984 as the back-office operations center for a Fortune 100 financial services firm. A portion of the building is being marketed on one on-line commercial real estate site as a possible regional or corporate headquarters or call center with space for up to 1,200 seats. The web site for the office building indicates it has additional space available.
