Largo land on stadium list is under contract for townhouses

LARGO — A list of potential stadium sites for the Tampa Bay Rays includes a former citrus grove in the city of Largo that developers are eyeing for townhouses.

That project is still moving forward on the site near the corner of U.S. 19 and Belleair Road, said economic development manager Teresa Brydon. The land was previously home to Orange Blossom Groves.

Brydon said the conditions of the development agreement will go before commissioners in the coming weeks.

According to Pinellas County Property Appraiser's records, the site is still owned by the Repetto family, which ran the citrus grove. The family is under contract to sell the land to M/I Homes of Tampa, according to DeLoach and Hofstra, the law firm handling the Repetto family trust.

An official from the Pinellas County Economic Development Department told the County Commission on Tuesday that the stadium report is a "high-level scan" that simply puts more land options on the table to keep the Rays, but officials had not discussed sites with the landowners.
