The Pinellas Point Neighborhood, also known as The Pink Streets, is a desirable neighborhood at the southernmost tip of St Petersburg and Pinellas County. The name “The Pink Streets” comes from the streets actually being pink! The color is a beautiful muted pink that actually goes well with the surrounding landscape. This neighborhood is surrounded by water and features a large waterfront park. Homes here typically range from the $300,000s to $3,000,000.
Why are the streets pink? Back in the 1920′s, the Pinellas Point Pink Streets development was thought of by developer, George Cook. Cook’s Murok Development Company had visions for an upscale neighborhood that would be grander than any other development in the area, and ordered the pink streets because no one else had them. In 1926, however, the St. Petersburg boom period was over and much of the Pink Streets development area sat empty for years. Over time, lots were purchased and homes were built. Now, the Pinellas Point neighborhood is full of lush trees, curvy roads, and an essence of being different from the rest of the city. In the 1980′s, when the time came to repave the streets, many of residents pushed the city to ensure that they’d be paved in pink concrete again.
Now, the Pink Streets in the Pinellas Point neighborhood runs between about 10th Street and 21st Street, just south of Pinellas Point Drive South. Some of the roads dead-end with a view overlooking the bay and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. There are some gorgeous older homes, along with some fine newer construction homes!
