Improving the ALVA alley

Work Begins on the ALVA alley in downtown St Petersburg

The City of St Petersburg is improving the alley between 2nd and 3rd Avenues North, running from Beach Drive NE to 1st St N.  Repairing sewer lines was the impetus, but the city is taking advantage of that work to bury the power lines and improve the alley as a pedestrian walkway from Beach Drive to BayWalk. The alley will become one-way from Beach Drive to 1st St NE.  My biggest concern was whether they were going to redo the alley with the brick or whether they were going to pave it. The answer I got was: brick.  That’s great, because it’s certainly more charming and interesting. This alley is the access to our parking lot behind ALVA International, so we’re temporarily displaced and using the Plaza parking garage. We’ll all have greater appreciation for our parking just outside our back door.
