Porter Development in Clearwater wants to build a mixed-use project focused on sports tourism on 29 acres near Tyrone Square Mall in St. Petersburg.
The redevelopment plan includes a 150,000 square foot indoor sports, events and recreation facility, and an adjacent four-acre lagoon and outdoor recreation area, according to a rezoning application filed with the City of St. Petersburg on behalf of Porter Development.
