The St. Pete Pier Approach is Coming to Life

The St. Petersburg pier approach is coming along – and will be open in the spring of 2020! That means that much of the green, shade, and spaces for play are already coming to life, as covered in this Tampa Bay Times article: https://www.tampabay.com/opinion/columns/pelicans-check-green-space-check-water-views-restaurants-shade-fun-check-open-the-new-st-pete-pier-already-20190803/.  W is designing the pier approach, which will include Janet Echelman’s sculpture “Bending Arc,” a marine-themed playground, grassy expanses, native plantings, waterfront seating, and spaces for people as well as habitat for pelicans and other birds. When we design, we consider all local residents (including migrating birds and dolphins) and are pleased to hear that the pier approach is welcoming them already!
