    Pinellas Point Vision-Aire Porch Party

    Join Preserve the 'Burg and our host Ashley Burke, for a special evening in Pinellas Point! 


    After arriving in St. Petersburg in the early 1950s, Chicago architect Glenn Q. Johnson partnered with industrial designer George Ely to introduce Vision-aire homes on 69th Avenue South and Pinellas Point Drive South. George Ely was head of the design firm Visioneering, and president of Better Living, Inc., the firm that purchased and developed the 100-acre plat between 9th and 7th Streets South, from 58th Avenue South to Pinellas Point Drive South.

    Vision-aire homes were designed with living areas that faced the southeast with jalousie windows, to invite breezes in from Tampa Bay. Over time, the Vision-aire name faded in use, and they came to be known as “bird-cage” homes for their unique and open-air design.

    This is a special opportunity to visit and tour one of the original split-level Vision-aire homes. 

    $30 for PTB members and $35 for non-members.
