This latest Land Investment Partners (LIP) development project will be located in the Suncoast Crossings MPUD at SR54 and the Suncoast Parkway. This $37 million project includes building two buildings of approximately 75,000 square feet of Class A office spec space for a total campus of 150,000 square feet of office space.
The public commitment (OEG18-1014) is a $6 million, 10-year loan from Penny for Pasco sales tax revenue that will be forgiven if the company meets its stated goals of building, at minimum, two 75,000 square foot buildings with the temporary Certificate of Occupancy and 75% of at least one of the buildings secured in, at minimum, 5 year tenant leases.
This project is needed due to the lack of Class A Office space in Pasco County.
