A massive new development could be on the way for WestShore Plaza, which could include a number of new high-rises, office space, and even a big box grocery store.
According to a recent report from the Tampa Bay Business Journal, the ownership group of WestShore Plaza is inquiring about a possible re-zoning the entire mall to make way for a huge redevelopment project that would occupy the property’s northeast corner.
If approved, the project would replace Sears, plenty of unused surface parking lot space, and the Seasons 52 property as well. Also noted by the Business Journal was a brief breakdown of everything the redevelopment project would include, which is as follows:
200,000 square feet of office space
120,000 square feet of medical office space
1,126 multi-family residential units (both condos & apartments)
240 hotel rooms
As of now, it’s still unclear when the Sears at WestShore Plaza will close, or when construction could potentially begin for the development. However a hearing regarding the re-zoning request is already scheduled for mid April.
