Tampa, St Petersburg and Clearwater comprise west central Florida’s primary business market, and directly at the center is Carillon. This ideal location is no accident; it is part of Echelon’s vision to put your business in close proximity to everything.
Developed and managed by Echelon, Carillon Office Park is home to national and regional owners and tenants. Carillon’s central location puts innovative office space, upscale residential communities, healthcare, shopping, dining, and a nationally recognized hotel in the ideal location close to all major roadways and airports. All this, surrounded by boardwalks, nature preserve, running trails and a 25,000 square foot health facility.
Small wonder that those who employ the best make their corporate headquarters Carillon.
Carillon enjoys an ideal location.
Situated on 432 acres of land in the heart of the Tampa Bay MSA, within the Gateway Business District of mid-Pinellas County, Carillon is roughly equidistant from the CBDs of Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater.
Carillon is at the confluence of I-275, Ulmerton Road and Roosevelt Blvd; the major north-south and east-west thoroughfares in Tampa Bay. More than 930,000 people live within a 20-minute drive of Carillon. This represents fully one third of the total population of the Tampa Bay MSA, and cuts across the full demographic spectrum.
Carillon is served water and sewer utilities by the City of St. Petersburg, electric power by two separate substations providing important redundancy in case of emergency, and fiber optics that run throughout the Park.
A master storm drainage and surface water management system is integrated within the Park’s lakes and conservation areas. As a result, no additional storm water retention is required of individual development projects within Carillon. The utilities and master permits in place make the regulatory approval process for development projects within Carillon quicker and easier.
The quality of the roadway network, street lighting, signage, jogging trails, boardwalks through nature preserves, landscaping and hardscaping throughout Carillon is indisputably first class. With over 100 acres of preserved conservation area, Carillon Park is the winner of multiple industry awards such as Associated Builders and Contractors of America “Excellence in Construction” award for the Lake Carillon interpretive walk project, Development of the Year Award (office park category), and both the Aurora Award and Multifamily Project of the Year Award.
Important roadway and utility infrastructure improvements include:
Carillon maintains development entitlements through two separate DRI Development Orders. The western portion of Carillon is governed by the Carillon DRI, and the eastern portion of Carillon is governed by the Gateway Areawide DRI.
Since its inception in the late 1980′s, Carillon is home to some of the most impressive companies in corporate America, including Raymond James Financial, Franklin Templeton Funds, Aegon-Western Reserve, Catalina Marketing, Allstate, Xerox, Bright House Networks, BayNews9 and others. The Park also includes a 145,000 square foot Wellness Center including medical offices, diagnostic facilities, trauma center, outpatient surgery center and state-of-the-art fitness facility as well as a 227 room four-star hotel. There are currently over 3.2 million square feet of office space built and occupied, and 929 multi-family residential units within Carillon (648 for-rent, 281 sold/for sale). The for-rent multifamily component of the park currently enjoys an average occupancy of 95%.
With this combination of location, infrastructure, entitlements, quality of development, and use-mix, it is no wonder so many companies choose to call Carillon home.
