^Greater Tampa Bay's most vibrant downtown isn't Tampa's though. It's St. Petersburg. Also, although there's +3 million, there are multiple cities and downtowns. In Jax, not so much. Thus, in years past, DT Tampa and DT Jax were pretty close in scale and size. Since the 2000s, Tampa has seen significant development on the fringe of their downtown in places like the Channel District, Harbour Island and Ybor. Now DT Tampa appears to be finally coming into its own. I'll be doing an article on DT Tampa's growth pretty soon. It's been on my things-to-do list for a while now.
