Westshore is a principal business district of Tampa, Florida, with more than 11,000,000 square feet (1,000,000 m2) of commercial office space, 4,000 businesses with nearly 100,000 employees, 32 hotels, two major shopping malls (International Plaza and WestShore Plaza) and more than 200 restaurants and bars. Westshore Boulevard is the district's main thoroughfare. Although mostly zoned for commercial use there is also some residential space in the area. The NEVs that circulate people around Tampa's urban corridor areas are starting to venture to International Plaza.[1]

The Westshore Business District includes Tampa International Airport, the headquarters of OSI Restaurant Partners (owners of Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba's Italian Grill, and other restaurant chains), and One Buccaneer Place, and the former team headquarters of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
