The Penny for Pasco, a Pasco taxpayer approved $0.01 sales tax, has once again proved the power of the single penny. Asturia Corporate Center, a 235,000 square foot speculative “Flex- Industrial” project is 100 percent leased to several qualified targeted industries. Tenants include Belmar, Lowes, Stratford Care, and UPS. It is estimated that up to 400 jobs will be created throughout the term of their leases. The Office of Economic Growth expects the project to bring in close to $35 million, annually, in positive economic impact to Pasco’s Gross County Product over the next 10 years.
“The success of the Asturia Corporate Center is a perfect example of Pasco’s Master Planned Unit Development (MPUD) strategy. We encourage developers to design business parks into their residential developments and when we work together, great companies with high paying jobs want to move to Pasco,” said Kathryn Starkey, Chairman, Pasco County Board of County Commissioners. “It’s truly a Live, Work and Play development.”
