The St. Pete Downtown Partnership, an anchor organization of the Innovation District, recently held their Development Summit. They tackled the important question of how to balance sustainable growth in our remarkable city. They also sought to inspire us about the potential for public spaces with the insights shared by Urban consultant Dan Biederman who is known for transforming Manhattan’s Bryant Park. Kudos to the Downtown Partnership for this important discussion. Now....its time to imagine the possibilities for Poynter Park in the Innovation District.
