This Construction Fair welcomes interested contractors and tradespeople to learn about the opportunity to complete work on The New St. Pete Pier™.
The New St. Petersburg Pier consists of a new 148,000 square foot concrete deck supported on approximately 426 concrete piles. This new deck supports elements such as the coastal thicket, equipped with trees and landscaping as well as a boardwalk. It also includes a new sloped lawn bowl that will be used for events and general recreation. The deck also supports two buildings: the new Pier Head and the new Education Center. The Pier Head includes a 6,800 square foot restaurant and a 4,500 square foot roof/observation deck. The Education Center is a 2,000 square foot multipurpose space at the center of the new pier that provides both indoor and outdoor program space. Surrounding the new pier are breakwaters that provide erosion protection for the newly constructed Spa Beach. On the landside, a new plaza called Pier Plaza supports outdoor program space, a new splash pad, a new titled lawn and the Pavilion building. The Pavilion building consists a small concession area as well as comfort stations. It is designed to maximize shade at the center of the entire PierDistrict.
