Palms of Pinellas

What can agencies, municipalities and real estate developers do to get more workforce housing built in the Tampa Bay area?

One answer is public-private partnerships, like the one behind the new Palms of Pinellas apartment community in Largo.

Palms of Pinellas resulted from a partnership involving the Pinellas County Housing Authority, Norstar Development and Valley Bank. The mixed-income, 92-unit project is the first of its kind in Largo.

Workforce housing is a key component for a good quality of life, providing affordable places to live for people who work in our tourism and services industries, as examples.
