Tampa seeks development proposals for Ybor City sites


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.
