Landon, Moree & Associates, Inc. has been selected as a member of the new St. Pete Pier project team and will coordinate the environmental permitting for the project.
Pier Park, the selected design from ASD of Tampa and its partners Rogers Partners Architects and Ken Smith Landscape Architect, will reuse only the structure’s caissons and elevator shafts.
In place of the inverted pyramid it will build a four-level structure with a fabric roof made of material similar to that of Tropicana Field. The project also will include a 7,600-square-foot, air-conditioned bar and grill with panoramic views that will also cater events at what is being called the Pier Overlook. There are restrooms at each level and lobby spaces that are air conditioned. At the pier head a “tilted lawn” is offered as a concert venue for as many as 4,000 people
