tampa channel arts district plan
- Extensive community engagement
- Visioning leading to action
- Public and private participation clearly defined
- Economic empowerment
Landair with Evergreen Solutions was engaged to prepare an arts plan to help the City of Tampa visualize the positive impact an Arts District would have on four closely linked communities: the Channel District, Downtown Tampa, East Tampa, and Ybor City. Landair's familiarity with community revitalization, real estate and public policy and public arts programming aided with the evaluation of existing arts assets, national trends and art district characteristics.
The plan envisions repositioning industrial buildings into affordable and mixed income live/work housing; the integration of arts into the economic strategy; and actionable tools to overcome the challenges to creating a sustainable creative industry hub and multi-cultural destination for the City of Tampa and the region.
