Dobyville Dollhouse, Smallest Home for Sale in Tampa  Bay, Has Vivid History
From one angle, this dollhouse looks like one of those trendy, minimalist micro-homes, all 388 square feet of it tucked into a tiny thumbprint among the oaks of Historic Hyde Park North. It is by far the smallest home on the market in Tampa Bay, thinner than a lane of traffic and built in 1910, a clapboard relic lost in one of South Tampa's fastest changing neighborhoods. Tom Scarritt, 57, a lawyer, bought it with his wife, Linda, a decade ago, convinced it would make a good one room ren...

Lots to Buy for Tampa Parking Kings After Real Estate Bust
In the wake of the real estate collapse, the most marketable use these days for some land in downtown Tampa may be - parking. Two brothers who became the kings of downtown Tampa parking are becoming downtown land barons as well, snapping up property at a fraction of its peak price. County land records show that entities controlled by Jason and John Accardi have paid at least $10 million for four pieces of land in the downtown core and the Channel District since fall 2007. And, they don't appear ...

Appellate Court Backs City's Stand Against Adult Club
Taurus Property Ventures has hit another legal roadblock in its pursuit to open an adult club at U.S. 92 and County Line Road. On June 30, the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta upheld a federal magistrate's recommendation to deny Taurus a temporary injunction that would have forced the city to approve a permit for the adult club, which might have offered nude dancers. The appeals judges' decision also supports the city's arguments that a new adult-entertainment ordinance nullifies ...

Court Upholds Adult Club Stance
The city has won round one in its legal battle to keep an adult club from opening at U.S. 92 and County Line Road, but the war may be far from over. Taurus Property Ventures is appealing a federal magistrate's recommendation to dismiss much of the company's case against the city. The lawsuit stems from the city's refusal to grant Taurus a permit to offer adult entertainment that could include nude dancers. The club's application was denied because its proposed site in vacant building is about ...

Strip Club Fight Fought In Court
The city fought the first round this week in a legal battle to stop an adult business from opening at U.S. 92 and County Line Road. But it will have to wait a while for the decision. Taurus Property Ventures wants to open a club that could offer nude entertainment in a former truck repair shop at 4350 E. U.S. 92. The city denied the application because an existing ordinance banned adult businesses within 1,000 feet of each other. The proposed club's site is about 650 feet from Showgirls Men's...

Couple Sues Ashland Chemical for Pollution of Their Land
The Hannas bought a 7-acre tract near Tampa International Airport about 30 years ago as an investment. When they decided to sell it to finance their retirement, they discovered that pollution had leeched from a neighboring property, owned by Ashland Chemical, a Columbus Ohio chemical-mixing and distributing company, making their land difficult to sell. In August 1996, the company negotiated an option to buy the Hanna property for $1.1 million. They extended that option a month later. Then, wh...
