New Tampa sat largely undeveloped until the city of Tampa annexed the 24-square-mile area at the end of the 1980’s. Since then, the community has blossomed. Development began with the Tampa Palms neighborhood and the area quickly became the choice of developers building amenity-rich, master-planned communities.
New Tampa grew rapidly from 1990 to 2000, as its population increased nearly 300 percent –- from around 7,000 residents to nearly 27,000. Many of homebuyers relocated from northern areas, including Michigan, Ohio, and New York. By 2005, the number of residents had increased to over 37,000.
Today, New Tampa has just over 50,000 residents with a median age of 33. The median household income is $94,453 and the average household net worth is $541,355.
New Tampa’s Hillsborough area has seven elementary schools, four middle schools and two high schools. Most of the schools routinely outperform the rest of the schools in the state of Florida. The University of South Florida is also nearby.
The community also offers residents a rich, convenient and diverse selection of shops and restaurant, including the nearby Shops at Wiregrass and the soon-to-come Tampa Premium Outlets.
In addition, to the amenities offered by many of the master-planned communities, New Tampa provides residents the opportunity to play multiple public golf courses, as well as bike and hike on miles of meandering nature trails.
