City of Oldsmar
Oldsmar, Florida - Top of the Bay
Located at the top of Old Tampa Bay, Oldsmar is a unique city in Pinellas County. With its rich history, strategic location in the Tampa Bay area, abundant recreational activities, and small town charm, Oldsmar has much to offer its residents, visitors and business owners. Oldsmar is positioned between the "best of two worlds", Tampa and the famed white sand Gulf Beaches of Pinellas County. The city is only 20 minutes from two international airports and centrally located to a variety of entertainment venues. This strategic location supports hundreds of office and industrial businesses with over 55,000 vehicles traveling daily through the city.
Major area employers include Nielsen Media Research, Lockheed Martin Tactical, SRI Surgical, Osgood Industries, Belac, Southern Analytical Laboratories, Microlumen and United Health Group.
The Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) provides a mix of residential, office, retail and restaurant uses, in a modern but nostalgic setting. Oldsmar plans to develop a city-owned site with a plaza/gathering place and mixed-used buildings surrounding the plaza. This 6-acre area adjacent to City Hall, known as Market Square, provides an excellent opportunity for development.
Oldsmar is home to a variety of industrial and office centers including Tampa Bay Park of Commerce, Bay Arbor Place, Brooker Creek Corporate Center, Cypress Lakes Industrial Park, Mears/Sellers Industrial Park, Park Avenue Plaza and North Tampa Shores.
For businesses in the Cypress Lakes Industrial Park, the city offers a Property Improvement Matching Grant Program designed to stimulate and leverage investment through enhanced appearance and condition of industrial structures and properties. This program can provide up to a $10,000 matching grant based on the total value of the project.
