Construction on St. Pete Pier to Begin This Month
St. Petersburg council members approved a maximum price for Phase I during today’s (June 1) meeting.
ST. PETERSBURG – The new St. Petersburg Pier moved another step closer to reality today (June 1) when the City Council set a maximum price for Phase I construction.
The council vote came on the heels of news that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has granted the city a permit to build the structure. The permit was the last remaining hurdle city officials had to clear before construction could begin.
Today, council members capped the cost of Phase I construction at $17.6 million. The vote authorizes the contractor, Skanska USA Building, to construct the marine structural work related to the new Pier.
Initial construction, including driving the pilings that will support the Pier structure, and the cast-in-place concrete platform over water, is slated to begin later this month. Phase 2 of construction, for the work above the Pier platform, is scheduled to begin in the fall.
