GRAND CENTRAL DISTRICT HONORED
St. Petersburg's Grand Central District has once again been designated as a National Main Street Program, this time for commercial district revitalization. This year, the District has welcomed several new businesses, including the city's first Net Zero office building, and continued a tradition of rehabbing existing structures, like the 1926 Mari-Jean Hotel. The Grand Central District is a member of Florida Main Street program. www.grandcentraldistrict.org
