There’s a strong sense that the USF area is going places… fast! With more than 50,000 students enrolled, and most of them attending classes at the Fowler Avenue campus, the USF area is the hub of Tampa’s new Uptown District, and it’s a rapidly evolving region of Tampa Bay.
Historically, the USF area was home to the north Tampa Medical District, including the VA Hospital, Shriner’s Hospital for Children, Moffit Cancer Center, University Advent Hospital, the University Mall, and Temple Terrace’s retail district. The neighborhoods immediately around USF are renter-heavy and have provided much of Tampa Bay’s affordable housing stock.
That’s all changing as the Uptown district planning evolves to include R&D parks, tech innovation, and live-work-play planning, as well as thousands of new apartment units that are targeted to Gen Z.
It’s a dynamic, urban community where you can still find a good deal on a home. Get in on the action in the USF area and be a part of the Future of Tampa Bay.
