With population growth of nearly 1% and job growth at 4.2%, Tampa-St. Pete leads the way in CrowdStreet’s top five regions for retail investment as it sees discretionary spending increase from both residents and visitors. While people are moving into the region, it’s the tourism that “has been quite incredible,” said CrowdStreet, which sees “retail following those trends. If people are moving there, if people are coming there to spend their discretionary income, you’re going to see that growth in the retail sales.”
