Pier District Open in St. Petersburg
The new St. Petersburg Pier District opened on July 6 and encompasses 26 acres of public space, with features that include a solar-shaded marketplace and an oculus with water views through a sloping lawn, owes its design to the collaborative efforts of architects from St. Petersburg, Tampa, and New York city: Rogers Partners, ASD/SKY, Ken Smith Workshop, Wannemacher Jensen, and W Architecture & Landscape Architecture. Wannemacher Jensen and W collaborated to design the area that links the new Pier to the downtown. Barbara Wilks, said she “was honored to work with the dedicated and passionate community of St. Pete to re-imagine” the new district, and “I am proud that we made a place that everyone can enjoy, while surrounded by native plants and animals of the Tampa Bay.” Read an article on the collaborative efforts by the Tampa Bay Times here.
