Since its earliest days as a growing fishing village on Florida's west coast in the late 1800s, a pier has been the centerpiece of St. Petersburg's downtown waterfront.
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.

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.
