AAA Editor Notes
The Pier once lied at the foot of Second Ave. N.E. One of the most recognized landmarks on Florida's west coast, the Pier was an inverted five-story pyramidal structure built in 1973.
Note: Due to its age and related structural problems, the building was demolished in fall 2015. Plans are underway to rebuild The Pier structure and reopen in fall 2018. The new pier will include shops, bicycle and walking trails, a fishing deck, restaurants, floating platforms, a beach, a coastal thicket, an observation deck, a boathouse and kayak launch, a splash pad, a playground and event space.
