Coming Soon: Trop Site Development Showrooms

Available starting Monday, April 12, immersive showrooms located throughout the city to encourage residents to review proposals and give feedback regarding the Tropicana Field redevelopment project.

The showrooms are equipped with executive summaries of the proposals, videos, renderings, and the ability to leave input regarding the four shortlisted proposals.

The showroom locations are:

- North Library: 861 70th Ave. N.
- Mirror Lake Library: 280 5th St. N.
- JW Cate Rec Center: 5801 22nd Ave. N.
- Enoch Davis Rec Center: 1111 18th Ave. S.

Each showroom location is subject to the established operating hours of the respective library or recreation center.

The showrooms launch after a week of extensive engagement with the potential development partners, where more than 500 residents joined three community input meetings. Community feedback will be collected until the final ribbon is cut on the Tropicana Field redevelopment. Input collected during this shortlist period will be provided to Mayor Rick Kriseman to inform a final development partner selection later this year.
