The Pink Streets is a neighborhood located on the southernmost tip of Pinellas Point. Its history began in the 1920s when developer George Cook wanted to build an upscale neighborhood unlike any other. Cook ordered the pink streets because no else had them and, according to historians, “they were thought to be very chic”.
Fast-forward to the 1980s when city officials planned to repave the neighborhood roads with blacktop. Pink Street residents rallied and paid thousands of dollars each to have the streets paved pink again. They have remained pink to this day.
This is a quiet, friendly neighborhood with winding streets; its welcoming main entry road is divided by a landscaped median. The area is dotted with waterfront homes and others with a view of Tampa Bay and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.
Lush landscaping, convenient location to downtown St. Petersburg and I-275, and affordable homes make the Pink Streets a very desirable place to live.
