International Plaza and Bay Street is a shopping mall located in the Westshore business district of Tampa, Florida. The mall, which opened in 2001, was built to give travelers an option to shop and dine in high-class surroundings, while at the same time be able to stay near Tampa International Airport (which borders the property). In 2006, the Renaissance Hotel Tampa/International Plaza was opened on the premises, making International Plaza one of a handful of malls in the U.S. to have a hotel directly on the mall property.

Section L[edit]

In 2008 International Plaza began working on a standalone project at the edge of their property along Westshore Boulevard. After many months of construction the mall opened the Bay area's first, multi-story Crate & Barrel along with upscale restaurant Ocean Prime. The tenants opened for business in May 2009 and the location was given the name Section L.
