Spanning 86 acres of publicly-owned land nestled in the heart of the Sunshine City, The Tropicana Field site represents a development opportunity unlike any other in the Southeast.

The City of St. Petersburg has dedicated a minimum of $75 million for infrastructure development of the site with plans to partner with a development team to create a multi-use city center that reflects the diverse and rich culture of St. Petersburg and adheres to principals developed through community engagement, including Smart Cities, sustainability, and a healthy community.

In the last decade, St. Pete has experienced an exhilarating renaissance. Recognized as one of America’s fastest-growing cites and named one of the top places to start and grow a business – St. Pete’s economic indicators strengthen each year. This development opportunity comes on the heels of the completion of the highly anticipated, world-class, $93 million St. Pete Pier project. The Tropicana Field site presents endless possibilities to take this city on the rise to the next level.

The Trop is currently serving as the main location of WWE Raw and SmackDown tapings, in addition to playing host to the WWE Network Special Royal Rumble. At the start of January the Trop was used as a drive-thru Jurassic Safari experience.
