TAMPA — The Tampa City Council on Thursday is scheduled to consider paying $1 million for a former warehouse on E Hanna Avenue.
The 11-acre paved site is at 2515 E Hanna Ave., about two blocks east of N 22nd Street. The property, formerly used by Electric Machinery Enterprises, is owned by Hanna Properties Corp., whose president is Jaime Jurado of Tampa. The city plans to use the property, which is above the flood plain, to store files and other materials that various departments now have stored in space the city leases elsewhere, said economic opportunity administrator Bob McDonaugh.
The city commissioned two appraisals, which put the property's value at $1.3 million and $1.4 million, respectively.
