As an artist who has been in search of the right commercial/ residential for sometime, I have found St. Pete to be more open to the idea. Not that there isn't anything in Tampa, just that St. Pete seems to be more cooperative.

Digitalimageinationsbdev, if you are seeking a live work situation, this would be determine by local ordinances, zoning and site development. If your situation requires signage, parking and traffic, you will have to check with building and zoning for approved neighborhoods and then use this information to drill down the neighborhoods that you like and would be most suitable.

Property in older sections of town are constantly being switched from different uses. Unfortunately there really isnt a specific way to tell from search functions that commercial wa converted to residential. The description may say converted warehouse etc. or pictures may show the old commercial styling present. The easiest starting point will be older areas and older buildings. Good luck.
