A Bright Future in Construction
When you think of Florida, your mind goes to beaches and Disney, not upcoming construction projects.
But, with so many recreational destinations, it’s no surprise that upcoming construction work in Florida continues to spike.
From the SoLe Mia in North Miami to Water Street Tampa, the biggest cities in Florida are building at an incredible rate.
 The Top Cities for Upcoming Construction in Florida
From November 2018 to November 2019, construction jobs in the Tampa-Saint Petersburg-Clearwater area rose from 77,000 to 85,000.
That was the 11th highest rate in the nation. Orlando development projects weren’t too far behind when they added 4,900 construction jobs, a six percent increase.
Developers are certainly doing their best to find ways to keep workers busy and the economy shows. Construction leads as one of the top industries in Florida.
We’re going to be looking at some of the largest and most notable upcoming construction projects all through the sunshine state.
These projects range from professional sports stadiums to mall redevelopments, and everything in between.
