Downtown St.Pete's Waterfront Readies for Change with New Pier
The St. Petersburg City Council has approved the Pier Park design to replace the currently abandoned inverted pyramid. The plan to develop the downtown waterfront and invigorate about 4 miles of shoreline is expected to have a long-lasting effect on the community. The Pier Park project is expected to open in three years at a cost of $46 million. It is to include open park space, bike and walking paths, water activities, concessions, art shows and outdoor entertainment.. The long-term plan to provide increased access to the water, more pedestrian areas and public art will improve the quality of downtown St. Petersburg.
