A St. Petersburg-based travel insurance company has installed a camera to document demolition of the Pier. Squaremouth is hosting a 24/7 live feed of the Pier where residents or anyone interested in seeing the Pier’s real-time state can view the structure.
Demolition of the actual structure is expected to start Monday. To this point, the Pier demolition has mostly just included the interior of the inverted pyramid while the structure remains relatively in tact.
“Changes are happening in St. Petersburg, and there’s perhaps no better representation of this than the transition happening on the waterfront,” said Squaremouth CEO Chris Harvey. “The pier has been such an important matter to the community for so long, we wanted to share our view of its development with them.”
Squaremouth plans to produce time-lapse videos of the demolition each month. They also plan to continue the live stream during the construction phase of Pier Park and will release time-lapse video of that as well.
The stream can also be embedded onto websites.
This live feed is provided by Squaremouth, a local company with headquarters overlooking the historic St. Petersburg Pier. A high-definition camera provides a live video feed of the Pier, from demolition of the current structure to construction of the new Pier Park.
