Overpass Business Park
The Pasco County Office of Economic Growth has embarked on an exciting opportunity to turn a County owned parcel of land into a significant opportunity for new businesses and jobs.
Pasco County is the current owner of 100 acres of land which faces Interstate-75 (I-75) which is located 1.5 miles north of State Road 54 and just south of the proposed new connection at Overpass Road and I-75. This land has been approved for entitlements of more than 2.25 million square feet office and industrial targeted industry development with the potential employment for 4,500 residents.
It is the intention of Pasco County to invest Penny for Pasco Economic Development funds into this site to meet all criterion of a truly Job Ready Site. A 'Ready Certification' requires the completion of all environmental surveys, the land use is appropriate for the target industry, and the infrastructure to accommodate multiple users with easy access to the Interstate for trade purposes. Pasco County has completed environmental site assessments, the comprehensive plan amendment, the zoning amendment and initiated pre-development engineering services and conceptual design consistent with an Industrial/Office Park.

Pasco County Board of County Commissioners and Overpass Business Park was awarded $3,088,580 to make the property into a shovel-ready site for targeted industrial and office development.
