About the St. Petersburg Pier

Built in 1973, the Inverted Pyramid Pier, a five-story inverted triangle-shaped building, became an icon of St. Petersburg’s downtown waterfront. It was the city’s fourth pier structure dating back to 1889. In 2004, the Inverted Pyramid Pier was deemed structurally unsafe, and it closed down in 2013.
In 2014, Mayor Kriseman was elected to office and led a charge to bring St. Petersburg a new pier. In 2015, City Council authorized the new St. Pete Pier as the new design. Demolition of the “Inverted Pyramid Pier” began in August of 2015, with the new St. Pete Pier expected to be complete in 2018.
