Coca-Cola Property

Coca-Cola Property map

Coca-Cola is a 27.5 acre site where Tropicana orange juice and Dasani water has been produced since the 1940s. In 2020, Coca Cola informed the City they will be relocating to Bartow, Florida within the next year. Due to the pandemic and other factors the relocation was delayed.  Coca Cola recently announced they would be closing the plant doors officially on May 31, 2024.  

Coca Cola has been a great partner with the City over the decades and recognizes the importance of how the property is used and redeveloped. The property is expected to be listed for sale by end of 2024. Please note staff is working closely with Coca Cola staff and Pinellas County Economic Development personnel along with interested developers on the future uses for this site which is zoned industrial.

The City and Coca Cola understand the sensitivities and importance in finding the best buyer and best use for the site.

Skinner Blvd. Complete Streets Improvements

The City of Dunedin has made improvements to the intersection of Skinner Blvd and the Pinellas Trail by constructing a new traffic signal.

The project will include a lane diet, roundabouts, and a multi-purpose path connecting to the Pinellas Trail to make travel safer for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists, and to stimulate economic development. Comprehensive engineering and forecasting have been done to evaluate the current and future traffic trips on this segment of Skinner Blvd.

Patricia Ave. Corridor Enhancement

Patricia Ave. Corridor Enhancement map

Planned enhancements along the median on Patricia Avenue will revitalize the corridor. Improvements will add vibrancy to Patricia Avenue and encourage private investment resulting in increased tax base and job creation. The landscape median is scheduled to be installed at the corner of Main and Patricia Avenue this summer and will function as a decorate entryway.

Please be advised that on February 19, 2024, or shortly thereafter, the City of Dunedin will begin a construction project on Patricia Avenue at the entrance off Main Street (580). The project will enhance the gateway onto Patricia Avenue and improve vehicular and pedestrian safety.

The City will construct a landscape median with curbing, irrigation and electric for lighting. Landscaping will include Palm Trees and ground cover. The area will be repaved when construction is complete.

This project will have no impact on the shops at Dunedin Plaza. It will be business as usual.
