The Downtown Mixed-Use City Hall represents a prime opportunity for new retail and mixed uses in the heart of Pinellas County in Largo’s West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment District. The property is located on a busy corridor, and offers convenient adjacency to Downtown amenities such as shopping, dining, and recreational and entertainment facilities. The City has heavily invested into the Downtown Largo area in terms of branding and gateway signage, infrastructure, streetscaping, midblock crossings and other pedestrian safety improvements, lighting, stormwater, a new trailhead at the Pinellas Trail and upgraded parks. The site is located directly between 1st Avenue NW and north of West Bay Drive, between 4th Street NW and 5th Street NW. The location is within walking distance to major retailers such as Publix, Sunshine Ace Hardware, Walgreens and CVS.
The site is also conveniently located a short distance from entertainment and special events at Largo Central Park and the Largo Central Park Performing Arts Center, major shopping destinations such as Largo Mall, Missouri Plaza, Largo Tri City Plaza, and to shopping and dining destinations in Belleair, Belleair Bluffs, and Indian Rocks Beach. This multi-million dollar investment into the new City Hall will provide new retail and commercial space to accommodate the needs of local businesses and residents. The downtown has major employers in close proximity such as the Pinellas County School Board, HCA Largo Medical Center and other medical industries in the Medical Arts District.
