Business growth drives demand for space in North Tampa Bay

Pasco County's tremendous growth in new residents and business expansions is driving demand for new office and industrial facilities as the county continues to attract companies to its north Tampa Bay community. 

Even with unprecedented demand, building spec is a risky business considering the overwhelming costs of developing infrastructure. Early in the current development cycle, the Penny for Pasco, a Pasco taxpayer approved $0.01 sales tax increase, helped fill capital gaps with loans to developers willing to build on spec. Additional developments were also supported through customized county incentive programs.  

The Penny for Pasco and other county incentive programs continue to support many active projects, including Moffitt Cancer Center's 775-acre Global Innovation Center in the, Speros FL community. Construction is well underway on many several projects and new office and industrial space is rapidly becoming available.
