Hyde Park Plan Clears Hurdle

The Tampa City Council voted 4-2 on Thursday to rezone the 20-year-old outdoor shopping complex for a $100 million makeover that includes condominium towers and stores.

“This is the only true urban village in the city,” said Councilman Charlie Miranda, who also voted to approve the original village plans in the 1970s. “It will give the city the opportunity for a lot more walkers, a lot more activity and a lot more communication with people.”

Miranda said the project is another indication of a changing city.

“It’s becoming more and more likely that Hyde Park, if you take out Bayshore, is the centerpiece of this wonderful city,” he said.
