Richmond Place is located in the area typically referred to by the locals as "New Tampa"
New Tampa is a region in Florida that encompasses both a 24-square-mile (62 km2) area within the corporate limits of the City of Tampa, as well as a larger land area that is in unincorporated Hillsborough, but retains a Tampa mailing address. The incorporated portion of "New Tampa" that lies within the city limits of Tampa is one of the largest city neighborhoods. The population has grown rapidly since being annexed by the city of Tampa in 1988. As of the 2000 census, the district had a population of 22,466. Many new master planned residential communities are planned or already under construction.Big-box stores are following the boom in population and are transforming this once rural area.
"New Tampa" also refers to a larger area that includes the area described above as well as parts of Wesley Chapel, an unincorporated area that abuts Hillsborough county to the north. Although neither technically nor officially part of the Tampa designated neighborhood New Tampa, most Tampa area residents identify the entire area as New Tampa.
New Tampa is bounded by Lutz to the west, Wesley Chapel to the north, Morris Bridge Road (near Thonotosassa) to the east, and the University community and the University of South Florida to the south.
Although settled in the mid-1800s, New Tampa remained undeveloped until the late-1980s, when the city of Tampa annexed the 24-square-mile (62km2) area. Its oldest neighborhood, Tampa Palms, although originally developed when the area was still unincorporated, did not thrive until the district boom of the 1990s. Most of the city's growth in the 1990s occurred in this district.
