  • Unique: The Greater Pinellas Point neighborhood is renowned for its “Pink Streets” and “Bird Cage” homes. Yes, when the area was developed in the 1940s, pink concrete was poured to form wide, winding pink streets such as Serpentine Drive and 14th St. S. Legend has it they were originally laid out to form a skeleton. You’ll find a number of “Bird Cage” homes built by architect Glenn Johnson, described as such because they feature a large amount of screened area.
  • Notable: Meaning ‘lots of pines,’ Pinellas Point features lush landscaping and lots of vegetation. Founded and built in the 1940s, the area was once inhabited by the Tocobaga Indians who came and settled here around the year 1,000 for good reason – because the bay was fruitful as a food source.
