Port Redwing Update: Expansion and growth continues

Port Tampa Bay has several expansion projects underway, including major developments at Port Redwing. Port Tampa Bay plans to expand and develop common areas that will improve capacity for all existing and future tenants at Port Redwing and the adjoining South Bay Area. We are excited about the continued industrial expansion of the South Hillsborough County area and anticipate growth will continue for many years to come.

Here is a list of tenant updates taking place at Port Redwing:

  • Ardent Mills continues to make great progress in their construction and anticipates completion of their new facilities in the late summer.
  • Port Tampa Bay has approved an expansion of the SESCO leasehold from 7 acres to approximately 13.5 acres. Port staff anticipates a finalization of the lease amendment and the commencement of SESCO’s construction for a new cement dome and bagging facility in late spring or early summer.
  • Logistec is in the process of investing and expanding of their leasehold for a greater capacity of their prilled Sulphur operations.

Recently, the FOX 13 shared a story about Ardent Mills moving their facilities from downtown Tampa to our port. You can view that story here: Ardent flour mill land becomes part of Water Street development
