A fantastic new development is coming to South St. Pete. The Legacy Center will be located in the historic Deuces corridor once home to over 100 Black owned businesses, and will be situated just across the street from the Historic Manhattan Casino and 22 South Food Hall. The Legacy Center will be the first new construction on 22nd Street South in almost 10 years.
Over 120 million dollars will be invested in the area over the next several years. Minutes from Tropicana Field, downtown and the waterfront, The Legacy Center will provide space for innovators and entrepreneurs throughout the day in a co-working and shared space.
A hub for social justice in South St. Pete
Leaders broke ground on the concept back in 2021. This project comes from the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance. The original chapter was founded in the US in 1925 and has chapters across the country. Their mission statement: IMA shows up, speaks up, and reaches out. IMA has been an historic voice of faith leaders for justice and equity and looks toward a future in which all people are valued, honored and thrive. Rev. J.C. Pritchett was a driving force behind bringing this project to The Deuces corridor.
The two-story incubator and social justice hub is set to host myriad conferences, guided workshops and a variety of illuminating panels.
You can learn more on IMA’s website. Behar + Peteranecz Architecture is set to design the space. IMAgine a place for non profits and small businesses to co work, create, and collaborate in the center of Saint Petersburg, Florida. The Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance presents the ‘Legacy Center for Social Justice ‘.
