Tampa seeks hotel, multi-family project proposals in Ybor City
TAMPA — With developers sniffing around Ybor City, Tampa officials plan to seek proposals for two pieces of city land, one of them a potential hotel site at the historic district’s front door.
City officials said Thursday they plan to invite hotel proposals for about a third of a block the city owns at the northeast corner of Nick Nuccio Parkway and E Seventh Avenue.
Developer Arnold Gitten with the Phoenix Group out of Broward County already has approached the city about purchasing the land, now used for parking. But because Ybor City is a community redevelopment area, the city is required to invite anyone interested to make an offer before it closes a deal.
