St. Pete buys Science Center
November 26, 2019 - The city of St. Petersburg has bought the Science Center of Pinellas for $3.15 million. The deal, approved earlier this year by the St. Petersburg City Council, clears the way for the city to use about half of the 6.78 acre property to build new water storage tanks. The sale was recorded as the second highest commercial sale in the 33710 zip code in the last five years, according to a news release from Smith & Associates Commercial Real Estate Division, which sold the Science Center. The Science Center previously was owned by CareerSource Pinellas and used for job training, STEM field trips, and helping people find jobs in the trade industry. CareerSource continues to offer skills training and seminars at their other locations throughout Pinellas County.
