LARGO - At 5 a.m. Aug. 11, the new 36,000-square-foot Bardmoor YMCA opened its doors to members.

The new building, at 8495 Bryan Dairy Road, is triple the size of the space it occupied at the nearby Baycare Outpatient Center Hospital, a space that it has long outgrown, said David Jezek, CEO of the YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg.

“It’s neat to see it come to fruition after you’ve worked so hard to pull it all together,” he said. “We want to deepen our impact on the lives of those that we serve and expand our footprint.”

LARGO - The Tech Data employees gathered in the international-flag-decked cafeteria were as much a part of celebration as the company leaders who heralded the new 45,000-square-foot expansion during the ribbon-cutting ceremony Aug. 8.

“We are ” prompted Joe Quaglia, president of the company in the Americas.

“Tech Data!” the employees shouted back.

About 1,700 people work out of Tech Data’s corporate headquarters at 16202 Bay Vista Drive in Largo. But the company employs about 10,000 people across 100 countries, working in 7 million square feet of property. Still, the new building was a visible investment and commitment to the Tampa Bay area, said CEO Robert Dutkowsky.
