AAA Editor Notes
The Pier District is at the foot of Second Ave. N.E. One of the most recognized landmarks on Florida's west coast, the building at the pier head 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 early 2019. The new pier will include shops, bicycle and walking trails, a fishing deck, restaurants, a beach, a coastal thicket, an observation deck, a splash pad, a playground and event space.
