Earlier this year, a new, 53,000 square-foot McKay Bay Transfer Station supplements the existing facility to accommodate the increased waste generated by Tampa’s development and growth. The new complex includes a Citizen’s Drop-Off Area, 30,000 square foot tipping floor, which doubles the existing site’s storage capacity and 5,600 square foot employee building, complete with offices, conference room, a new breakroom, and employee restrooms. The proposed location for the artwork is the western exterior façade of a newly constructed wall providing an area of approximately 143’ x 48’ for a commissioned artwork.
