St. Pete's inverted pyramid pier up for historic status

St. Pete's inverted pyramid pier up for historic status

ST. PETE, Fla. (TBO.com)- St. Petersburg's inverted pyramid pier could soon be listed alongside some of the country's most famous landmarks.

State officials have asked the city to conduct a cultural survey of the 1970s-era building, which closed in May and was slated for demolition to make way for a new pier. Now, the inverted pyramid building could lead to its inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.

It's unlikely that would spare the 40-year-old building from demolition, but a historic designation would add an extra bureaucratic hurdle for city leaders to clear if they continue with their plan to raze the structure.
