The City of St. Petersburg and HKS Architects are exploring strategic approaches and options for redevelopment of the 85 acre Tropicana Field Site. The importance of this site to the future of St. Petersburg can hardly be overstated. It is a once in a generation chance to create new opportunities for growth, economic development, and an enhanced community!
The City held community meetings on July 18th at the Coliseum and July 19th at Campbell Park Recreation Center to gather ideas and feedback from the community on their vision for a redeveloped site. On August 2nd, the City and HKS met with the South St. Petersburg community at the St. Petersburg College Midtown Center to gain additional insight into the community’s desired uses for the site and ways to integrate the site with the surround neighborhoods and associations. The City also met with six smaller stakeholder groups which included neighborhood associations, business associations, youth/teens, and economic development organizations.
On August 22nd, early conceptual ideas reflecting the community input obtained at those initial meetings were shared with the public at the USFSP University Student Center. Key features include integrating a variety of transportation modes, strengthening connections with the surrounding neighborhoods, and incorporating shared parking for a variety of uses to be located on the site.
The City of St. Petersburg continues to advance the exciting process of exploring strategic approaches and a vision for the redevelopment of the 85-acre Tropicana Field site. The importance of this site to the future of St. Petersburg can hardly be overstated. It is a once in a generation chance to create new opportunities for growth, economic development, and an enhanced community.
The master plan team spent the past few months listening to and exploring the community’s vision for St. Pete. Together we have created a visionary concept shaped by the thoughts, voices and diverse perspectives from within our St. Pete community.
HKS will present the Conceptual Master Plan at a community meeting on October 20th. See how our joint exploration of the strategic approaches for redevelopment has taken shape.
