In Florida, a healthy downtown has become a key indicator of civic vitality.

Orlando has $2.2 billion worth of public and private infrastructure and construction projects. More than 30 projects are under construction or planned for downtown Sarasota, representing more than $692 million. Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik is planning to create a $2-billion, 40-acre mixed-use community in downtown Tampa.
