St. Petersburg Innovation District

St. Petersburg Innovation District Overview

St. Petersburg, FL

During the summer of 2015, the City of St. Petersburg and GAI collaborated with representatives of the St. Petersburg Innovation District. This broad-based group of leaders represents organizations and institutions that compose this diverse and unique area, including the City of St. Petersburg, the Downtown Partnership, Chamber of Commerce, All Children’s Hospital/John’s Hopkins, Bayfront Health, University of South Florida St. Pete, University of South Florida College of Marine Science, The Poynter Institute, the Foundation for a Healthy St. Pete, Florida Institute of Oceanography, and the Tampa Bay Innovation Center. GAI facilitated several visioning exercises to conceive a master plan that organizes a framework for governance, strategic objectives, and place-making. GAI’s goal for these exercises is that, over time, the St. Petersburg Innovation District will enjoy dramatic evolution—not only physically, but also synergistically—so that these separate entities can advance their missions of research, health, education, innovation, and new business incubation to significantly benefit the local quality of life and community vitality, while positioning itself as a nationally significant hub of innovation and collaboration.
