Delightful Dunedin
Incorporated in 1899 by Scottish pioneers, the City of Dunedin celebrates its Celtic heritage in its schools, streets, shopping centers and festivals. Today, it boasts four miles of open waterfront, over 220 acres of land dedicated to parks for public recreational use, a municipal marina, two state park islands, and a Major League Baseball spring training facility. The Main Street area provides a mix of residential, office, retail and restaurant uses, all framed in a nostalgic, quaint setting. With its brick sidewalks, varied landscaping and decorative lighting, the downtown area is very pedestrian friendly,

Directly through the heart of downtown Dunedin runs the nationally-recognized Pinellas Trail, a 47-mile paved passageway connecting the entire county, used expressly by pedestrians, bicyclists and roller bladers. Downtown Dunedin hosts numerous annual events, drawing over 100,000 people to the area for occasions such as Mardi Gras, the Highland Games, Antique Fairs, live music, and Friday Night Films in Pioneer Park.

Major employers include Coca Cola North America, Bob-Cad Cam, McCormick Stevenson, Ocean Optics, Digital Forensics and Black Hagen Design.

Opportunities
The Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) has focused on enhancement of the 217-acre downtown Main Street area. An aggressive redevelopment program provides incentives to commercial building owners, including a matching facade grant program and demolition assistance (downtown only). Property owners can also apply for matching funds to bury overhead utilities.

With 90,000 square feet of retail and office space available upon completion, the $30M Dunedin Gateway shopping plaza by Pizzuti Solutions will serve as the eastern entrance to the downtown retail and entertainment district. Additionally, what was previously the 23-acre Nielsen Media Research facility has been designated for a mixed-use development and is for sale by Wells Fargo.
