Tropicana Site RedevelopmenT

Project Overview

Spanning 86 acres nestled in the middle of St. Pete, with one of the most vibrant and walkable communities in the nation, the Trop Site (currently formally known as Tropicana Field) represents an opportunity unlike any other in the Southeast. On December 2, 2021, Mayor Rick Kriseman announced his selection of Midtown Development to serve as the developer of the Tropicana Field Site.

Tropicana Field Conceptual Master Plan

The City of St. Petersburg and HKS Architects developed two conceptual master plans for the redevelopment of the 86-acre Tropicana Field Site, one including a baseball stadium and one without, referred to as Scenario One and Scenario Two. The importance of this site to the future of St. Pete can't be over-emphasized. It is a once-in-a-generation chance to create new opportunities for growth, economic development, and an enhanced community!

Midtown Development best represented the criteria contained within the RFP, which represented years of community feedback, ideas, and input. The firm has a proven track record of executing large, mixed-use developments and will have an opportunity to showcase their vision for the site in the months ahead.


Community Engagement

The City of St. Petersburg, community organization partners, and potential development partners have remained committed to engaging the community from the early days of redevelopment discussions.
