The City of St. Petersburg announced Thursday morning that the new St. Pete Pier will officially open at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 30.
The announcement was made with a 55-second video featuring Mayor Rick Kriseman, Deputy Mayor Kanika Tomalin and others. “It’s the beginning of a new era in St. Pete,” Kriseman said in the video. “The future has arrived in the form of a dynamic, 26-acre pier district.”
The projected final cost for the multi-use pier – featuring restaurants, a wooded walking area, an outdoor amphitheater and more – is $92 million.
