Waterfront Development Opportunities

Harborview and Old City Hall Sites

The City of Clearwater has issued a Call for Development Concepts from respondents to develop two prime waterfront sites in Downtown Clearwater.

Investment in our waterfront presents an incredible opportunity for success on some of the most scenic properties in the Tampa Bay area. The most recent figures presented last year put the two parcels’ values at a combined $20 million. These sites are ideally situated in Clearwater’s downtown waterfront, which sits on an elevated bluff along the Intracoastal Waterway, overlooking the beautiful Clearwater Harbor Marina.

Interested parties should note the due date for proposal submissions is June 9, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. The City anticipates selecting one or more preferred development partners by June 23, 2022.

Harborview Site

Cleveland St. and N. Osceola Ave

The first parcel, the former site of the Harborview Center (+/- 1.43 acres), is located just to the north of the intersection of Osceola and Cleveland Street, Downtown’s major commercial corridor. Today, it is a vacant site adjacent to Clearwater’s Main Library and will be the main entry point from Downtown to the new waterfront park. The Harborview site is the City’s priority for redevelopment out of the two sites, given its strategic location and adjacency to the park entrance.


Old City Hall Site

Pierce St. and S. Osceola Ave.

The City Hall site (+/- 2.60 acres) is located at the intersection of Osceola Ave. and Pierce St., a half block south of the Harborview site. This site also has direct access to the future waterfront park and is an important connection between the waterfront and the rest of Downtown. As a part of the overarching goal to encourage activity in downtown Clearwater, the City is open to respondents considering the potential for a cultural use aligned with the context of the overall site program proposed, if respondents deem this an attractive concept.
