Some Like the “Lens” Some Don’t

St. Petersburg city leaders held a meeting for the public Thursday night to discuss the new design for the cities Pier.

More than 100 people showed up and allowed the public to discuss ways to improve upon the design.

‘The Lens,’ with it’s $50 million dollar budget, is the design that city council members approved to replace the decades-old icon that has fallen into disrepair in downtown St. Petersburg.

Not everyone offered constructive criticism.
