For downtown Tampa’s Park Tower, a flurry of leasing activity unfolded before multimillion-dollar renovations began.

The oldest office tower in downtown Tampa saw a flurry of leasing activity in 2017 — a year in which the rest of the downtown office market was largely at a standstill.

If all of the potential deals the landlord is chasing come to fruition, occupancy could top 90 percent by this summer, said Mike DiBlasi, vice president of leasing and marketing for Feldman.
