We’re going to cover all the goings-on in the Tampa Bay area, and how Ready Stays is here for your month-to-month rental needs in Tampa.
Coca-Cola Florida has moved forward with plans to install its new 1.3 million square foot facility in Brandon. The company received approval for its plans in March, and has since filed civil engineering plans with the Southwest Florida Water Management District. According to Biz Journals, the development ‘has the potential to create thousands of construction jobs and generate significant new tax revenue for Hillsborough County’. The site will likely include a product warehouse, distribution and product packaging space, and office space. Other accessory buildings would include a 50,000 square foot headquarters and 30,000 square foot recycling facility.
In similar news, Amazon has closed two new real estate transactions in the Tampa Bay area. The company has purchased over 80 acres in Temple Terrace, and a warehouse lease in Seffner. While it’s not yet known what operations will be undertaken on Amazon’s new land, the retailer’s real estate holdings in the Tampa region are already huge. Late last year, they rolled out Amazon Fresh, a grocery delivery service, from a warehouse in Brandon.
The University of South Florida has announced that their College of Hospitality and Tourism is being expanded to all three of the university’s campuses. This will mean that the College of Hospitality will now become a school under the Muma College of Business, and accessible on all three campuses. The Muma School of Business Dean, Moez Limayem, said that there was also some interest in collaboration between the two schools. What’s more, Bob Morrison, the executive director of the Hillsborough County Hotel and Motel Association predicted the expansion will ensure that new, emerging talent is brought to the area, ever more important amidst layoffs and furloughs within the hospitality industry during the coronavirus pandemic.
Visit Florida has pledged to use its unspent marketing dollars from late winter to early spring, to draw people into the state. The tourism agency will spend more than $13 million of unspent marketing budget, on top of the $39.8 million usually allotted to marketing campaigns. The agency hopes that with this increased spend, tourists will be more attracted to visiting the state, which will hopefully give the local economy a much-needed boost. They acknowledge that some tourists might not be comfortable travelling just yet, but outdoor activities have increased, and many businesses are putting into place plans to ensure the health and safety of customers.
