WestShore Plaza is an enclosed shopping mall located in the Westshore business district of Tampa, Florida, developed by Albert L. Manley of Boston, MA. WestShore Plaza was opened in 1967 and was touted as Tampa's first shopping center that was fully air-conditioned. WestShore houses many higher-end retail chains, such as the Lindt & Sprüngli chocolatier and Ann Taylor, as well as trendy boutiques like Lush Couture.
WestShore Plaza's anchors include Sears, JCPenney, Macy's, Old Navy, and Saks Fifth Avenue. There is also an AMC movie franchise (14-screen theatre), a P.F. Chang's China Bistro and a Maggiano's Little Italy. High-end steakhouse chain The Palm and gourmet seafood eatery Mitchell's Fish Market Restaurant and Bar are also located at Westshore.
The mall has since seen numerous expansions. The tenant space at WestShore is owned and managed by Glimcher Realty Trust.
The Plaza is home to Florida's only BoConcept retail location, a Danish Modern store featuring customizable urban design interiors.
