Horizon West Bay

In 2019, the City of Largo began efforts to develop a new project downtown that would include City Hall. The current building on Highland Ave is no longer suitable due to upcoming costly repairs, lack of resistance to storm damage and flooding, and limitations for projected growth. The Horizon West Bay project is designed as a mixed-use project with retail space, City Hall, and a parking garage. The facility will be located on the northern 400 block of West Bay Drive. Groundbreaking is set to start in 2022 and we look forward to opening the doors in 2024.

Timeline
PROJECT GOALS
The relocation of City Hall is aligned with the City's investment in the re-development of the West Bay Drive downtown corridor. This new central facility, Horizon West Bay, is intended to promote downtown development as a mixed-use (e.g., City facility, private businesses, and public use space) and will align with the City's strategic initiatives of public health and safety, sustainability, and community pride.  

TEAM AND PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT
Features of the design were developed with input from diverse stakeholders including team members, residents, businesses, and community groups.  An online survey and multiple focus groups were held to set priorities for specific design features and public use elements. Much of the information shared by the community complemented previous community feedback and vision for an active and interconnected downtown that is welcoming, family-friendly, and safe while preserving and incorporating natural elements and green space.
