The Strand offers 21,500 square feet of new, flexible business space

As downtown Clearwater sees an influx of new residents, tied to a revitalization of the Cleveland Street corridor, The Strand, one of the area’s top under-construction projects, has announced that it is offering 21,500 square feet of retail/office space available for customization.

Along with such endeavors as the City of Clearwater’s streetscape renovations, a weekly farmer’s market, monthly family festivals, and the new Clearwater Harbor Marina, The Strand is taking shape as another pillar of downtown Clearwater’s urban renaissance.

And with this opportunity to bring more services to the area, a number of types of businesses and retailers could make sense in the space — as just a few examples, a med spa, a dry cleaner, a small grocery, or a yogurt shop. This square footage also includes 6,000 square feet for office space.

“Our location is central to downtown and visible from key thoroughfares, accessible from either Court Street or Drew Street,” said Janeen Pearson, sales manager for The Strand. “With construction still underway, business owners have an opportunity to tailor the space to fit their exact needs.”

The city’s phased streetscape construction has just begun directly outside The Strand, which will include decorative streetlights, benches, potted plants, and metered parking. Those renovations are expected to be complete later this year, and The Strand’s retail space is expected to be complete early next year. As a mixed-use development, The Strand offers many opportunities for businesses to reach a large customer base.

Current plans include 12 individual retail units ranging from 500 to 2,686 square feet, though spaces can be combined. For information, please contact Janeen Pearson, sales manager, at 727-443-1797 or
