CATCH THIS: Buccaneers wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson is looking to unload his Harbour Island town home. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom, 4,441-square-foot home boasts a Classic California Contemporary style.

Balconies on all three floors offer views of the water and Davis Island beyond. The home also has bamboo floors, a commercial quality kitchen, slate and stainless steel surfaces throughout, a private dock and swimming pool.

It's less than a year old. (Good thing Johnson holds onto the ball longer than he holds onto houses.) Coldwell Banker is listing the home. The asking price? $1.85 million.

TEN DAYS LEFT: Want to build a high-rise near the Poe Garage in downtown Tampa?

May 27 is the deadline to submit letters of interest to Tampa Mayor Dick Greco and the Tampa Downtown Partnership.

A formal request for proposal will be issued later this summer and will result in the selection of a developer for the project. The hope is that Tampa residents will eventually be able to live, work, shop and attend cultural events in the central downtown business district.

MORE TO VACUUM: The average size of a home built in 1900 was 700 to 1,200 square feet and had two or three bedrooms and one or no bathrooms, according to the National Association for Home Builders. In 1950, the average new home was 1,000 square feet or less, and had two bedrooms and one bathroom. In 2000, a typical new home was 2,265 square feet with three or more bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.
