Teams Invited to Second Stage (8)

Statement of Qualifications Received (16)

 SOQ Overview

Request For Qualifications (RFQ)

The next step in the new St. Petersburg Pier Process is for the city to issue a Request For Qualifications (RFQ) to interested design teams for the redesign and replacement, or renovation, of the Pier. The RFQ details the scope of the project among other important information so design teams can submit a Statement Of Qualifications (SOQ) to the City.

The Pier Working Group

A Pier Working Group of citizens was asked by Mayor Rick Kriseman to determine the next steps in moving a new Pier plan forward. With a goal toward determining the function of a new Pier, the group held public meetings in June and July to gather community input and established a set of recommendations from that input to the mayor as the process moves forward.

Final Report to the Mayor

A New Process to Move Forward

On May 1, 2014, Mayor Rick Kriseman announced a process to move forward with The Pier on St. Petersburg's waterfront. The process, designed to be fair, comprehensive and transparent, begins with a working group that includes leaders from the neighborhoods, local businesses and previous stakeholders in previous Pier discussions.
