City seeks proposals for Ybor City sites

Tampa City Hall on Friday issued two requests for proposals from developers for two vacant, city-owned sites in Ybor City.

On one, officials are seeking a hotel developer for a third of a block the city owns next to the Marti-Maceo Club at the northeast corner of Nick Nuccio Parkway and E Seventh Avenue. That land could be combined with land owned by Volunteers of America, also for sale, to create three-quarters of a block.

A developer out of Broward County has already asked about buying the land, but because Ybor City is a community redevelopment area, the city must seek competitive proposals.

Officials say they will not make a decision on price alone, but will consider whether the projects are in the best interest of Ybor City.

The second request is for about half a block near Interstate 4 and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, along E 12th Avenue between N 16th and N 17th streets. Development proposals are due by 5 p.m. Jan. 3.
