Submit your design for an iconic Pier structure

Published by Julia Salerno, June 29, 2011.

A current landmark pier in St. Petersburg, Florida is nearing the end of its 30 year life span. Slated for replacement, St. Petersburg is sponsoring an international design competition for a new, iconic Pier structure.

Interested parties must register for the competition by July 8, 2011. Submission of the Statement of Qualifications will be due on July 19, 2011. A juried panel will select three design teams to be invited to the second phase of the process. During stage two, the three teams will submit a design concept, and each will receive a $50,000 honorarium for participating in the process. It is anticipated that a final plan will be approved and contract negotiations will begin with the accepted team early next year.

Visit the competition website for more information: The website provides background information and public input generated during a community visioning process that preceded the current design competition.
