West Bay is quickly becoming not only one of the best economic development opportunities in Florida today, but also in America. At 75,000 acres, it is also one of the largest mixed-use, planned communitities in the United States. The plans for West Bay include:

  • A new state-of-the-art international airport to replace the existing facilities
  • Commercial, office and industrial entitlements that total approximately 4.4 million square feet
  • Preservation of West Bay's shore line and its tributary creeks
  • Marinas and other recreational areas
  • Residential communities with approximately 5,480 dwelling units

At full build-out, the West Bay Sector Plan contemplates approximately 27,000 residential units and 37 million square feet (3.4 million square meters) of commercial/industrial and retail space.
