NetPark Tampa Bay sits on a 98.71-acre site in the East Tampa/Interstate 75 Corridor submarket. The building features a first-class arrangement of on-site amenities, notably its fitness facility, dining hall, conference center and auditorium, on-site day care facility, and a HART bus transfer station. The property was 60% occupied at the time of sale by a diverse tenant roster featuring a variety of public and private sector firms ranging from 1,250 square feet to just under 150,000 square feet.

The property, formerly known as East Lake Square Mall, was Tampa’s original regional mall located in East Tampa when developed in 1976.
