According to an article by Ariel Rosenstock, "the city council in St. Petersburg, Florida approved a new pier design that can adapt to changing sea levels."

"The planned new pier, designed by ASD/SKY, Rogers Partners Architects + Urban Designers and Ken Smith Workshop, is slated to replace the now-demolished 1973 ‘Inverted Pyramid’ pier," adds Rosenstock. The city announced eight finalists for the design back in December 2014 before picking the winning design.

Rosenstock also notes that the pier design occurs in the larger context of a planning effort for the waterfront area of St. Petersburg. The article includes more funding and project details about the new pier as well as renderings of the winning design.
