A groundbreaking for Largo's first mixed-use project, West Bay Lofts, marked a milestone for the city and also brought new hope for the revitalization of its downtown. The $48.8 million project includes a five-story building on the 500 block of West Bay Drive and a three-story building on the 600 block, and city officials hope it will be the catalyst the area needs.

Since the private sector is showing few signs of life in  downtown Largo, city leaders have decided to light the spark themselves when they announced a $25 million five-year plan to move City Hall back downtown by constructing a mixed-use municipal complex with a public parking garage.

Aside from a small sign near the corner of West Bay Drive and Missouri Avenue, there are no distinguishing characteristics that separate downtown Largo from the rest of the city. Largo leaders hope to change that with a series of projects aimed at establishing downtown’s identity and making the area more welcoming to residents, businesses and visitors.
