US 19 Corridor Development Opportunities in Clearwater

The Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council and the City of Clearwater Economic Development staff worked on the US 19 Corridor Development Opportunities project, creating illustrations and a webpage that are intended to show the type of redevelopment scenarios possible on the corridor. The webpage uses digital illustrations and 3D animation to show the mixed-use redevelopment possibilities for four large commercial properties at major intersections: the northeast corner of Gulf to Bay Boulevard and U.S. 19; the southeast corner of Drew Street and US; the northwest corner of Drew Street and U.S. 19; and the northeast corner of Countryside Boulevard and U.S.19 up to State Road 580.

With a vision to increase employment opportunities through a single, corridor-wide zoning district, the city of Clearwater has positioned the seven-mile stretch of the US 19 Corridor to be an economically vibrant, attractive, and safe destination for people working, living, and shopping.

US 19 is a limited access highway and serves as the primary commercial corridor for central and northern Pinellas County connecting businesses to customers and is the main transportation thoroughfare for workforce in this area. The Corridor is comprised of three subdistricts and provides a development code that allows the greatest number of uses and flexibility for commercial, multi-family, light manufacturing, retail, and healthcare, as well as many other uses.
