St. Pete Mayor Fosters 828 Alliance For Pier

On Aug. 28, Mayor Bill Foster expects to be standing on the steps of City Hall raising a glass to toast the future of the St. Petersburg Pier.

That future could be Michael Maltzan’s “Lens” pier design, or it could be the start of another process to chose a new St. Petersburg Pier.

Foster announced Wednesday the creation of the “828 Alliance,” which is tasked with creating a process to choose a new pier by Aug. 28, because Foster said it is crucial the city has a vision by then.
