Back in the 1920’s, the Pinellas Point Pink Streets development was dreamed up by a gentleman named 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. They were thought very chic and caused a sensation. But in 1926, the St. Petersburg boom period was over, and much of the Pink Streets development area sat empty for years. Many of the early investors in the Pink Streets who purchased lots fell into bankruptcy, however over the years, many different styles of homes were built in the Pink Streets giving it the wide diversity of architecture we see today. Over time, lots were purchased and homes were built. But regardless of the type of house, the area residents have always loved the Pink Streets, the lush trees in the neighborhood, the curvy roads, the essence of being different from the rest of the city.
