Global construction and development firm Skanska has completed the construction of the St. Petersburg Municipal Pier and Pier Approach in downtown St. Petersburg.
The $92 million, 26-acre project features an open air park, 1,400-foot pier, a beach, restaurants and shop as well as entertainment and educational areas. The City of St. Petersburg engaged the public in the project to redesign and redevelop the pier, with Skanska tapped to provide preconstruction and construction management services for both the Pier and the accompanying Pier Approach focused on elevating the pedestrian experience.
“Our team is immensely proud of their contribution to such an impactful project. The St. Pete Pier District will serve the community for generations to come,” said Michael Brown, executive vice president and general manager for Florida building operations at Skanska. “Skanska’s construction team worked in close collaboration with the architects, the City of St. Petersburg and local residents every step of the way to ensure the improvements and reconstruction preserved the integrity of a defining part of the City’s history.”
