Palma Ceia Real Estate
Many Tampa historians have speculated on the origin of the name Palma Ceia, speculating that it was originally named the ‘seat’ of the palm, or “Palma Silla” by early Spanish speaking settlers. Regardless of where the name comes from, Palma Ceia has a very distinct aesthetic when compared to many communities in Hillsborough County, showcasing antique red brick roads shaded by enormous oak trees and complemented by a wide range of housing designs and price ranges. This aesthetic, combined with the rich cultural history has helped maintain constant appeal to Tampa residents since the early 1920’s and continuing through today, leading to Palma Ceia’s current state as one of Tampa’s most sought after communities.
This neighborhood is also home to the Palma Ceia Design District, centered on the intersection of MacDill Ave and Bay to Bay Blvd and identified by a sculpture from local artist Marc DeWaele, This district is well known to contain many specialty boutiques and cafes, including some of the highest rated in the city.
