No neighborhood in Tampa is growing quite like Tampa Heights. Located only one mile north of downtown Tampa, Tampa Heights has previously been considered a rough neighborhood that most people wouldn’t live in, but that seems to be changing as more professionals move into the area. Housing prices have soared by 64 percent, crime has dropped dramatically by 64-75 percent, and convenience seems to be the theme. Here are the top reasons that Tampa Heights is back in favor.
People who have lived in the suburbs of Tampa are starting to move into the more urban areas simply due to convenience. Living in Tampa Heights means that you can walk to most of the shopping and restaurants that people usually come to Tampa to experience. You’ll also likely have a shorter commute to and from work, and you will have less stress due to extra driving.
