ST. PETERSBURG, FL (August 12, 2014) -- Since its earliest days as a growing fishing village on Florida's west coast in the late 1800s, a pier has been the centerpiece of St. Petersburg's downtown waterfront. Today, St. Petersburg has released a Request for Qualifications to the architectural and engineering community for design of a new or renovated pier structure.

Submission of the statement of qualifications is due on September 5, 2014. A selection committee will shortlist the most qualified design teams, who are then invited to the second phase of the process. During stage two, the shortlisted design teams will each receive a $30,000 stipend to submit an initial design concept, complete with reports, renderings, cost estimates and a description of how the programmatic elements meet the findings of the Pier Working Group (a 21-member volunteer citizen committee appointed by Mayor Rick Kriseman). It is anticipated that a final plan will be approved and contract negotiations will begin with the accepted team early next year.

Design teams interested in obtaining information on the city's request for qualifications should visit the Pier Web site at The Web site also provides volumes of background information and public input generated during a multi-year community process that preceded the current process.

St. Petersburg, Florida's fifth largest city with more than 250,000 residents, has been called one of the south's best downtowns, and has been ranked the No. 1 Arts Destination for cities of its size for three years in a row. This year, the New York Times listed the Sunshine City as one of 52 "must visit" places worldwide in 2014, trumpeting the city's cultural climate, arts scene and pedestrian-friendly downtown.
