Historic Pine Avenue Shops

Historic Pine Ave with Roser Church

The half mile stretch that runs from the Gulf of Mexico to Tampa Bay is home to about 25+ Pine Avenue shops and businesses. It comes with a lot of history. The first island settler George Emerson Bean called the island his home in 1892 and started developing streets, sidewalks and installing a water system. In 1911 the Anna Maria City Pier at the end of Pine Avenue was built to ferry island day visitors from nearby Tampa. Bean’s contemporary John Roser built the first church on Pine Avenue in 1913.  Shortly after came a school that lead to the beginning of an island community. A jail was built just down the street from the church in 1927 for the drunk and disorderly visitors. The roof was lost a long time ago and it now serves as popular photo op. It is part of the historic museum complex which displays many highly interesting island memorabilia.

In 1921 the first wooden bridge was built connecting the island to the mainland passing the fishing village of Cortez. Part of the original bridge is now used as the Bradenton Beach Pier. With the help of a bridge more people visited the beach and the new island era began.  Skip close to 100 years and the face of the island has changed a lot. The entire land has been developed and about 8500 residents call the barrier island their permanent home. There are families, children, singles and retirees all living here together. Let’s not forget how Anna Maria Island has become a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers. From honeymooners to Hollywood film crews, youngsters to the young-at-heart, people from around the world have discovered this slice of paradise.

 

Shopping Pine Avenue

Pine Avenue Shops

With the steady flow of visitors many new shops and businesses opened up along Pine Avenue. Since many of them use environmentally-friendly practices it is also called “The Greenest Little Main Street in America”. There is even a community garden that features several edible boxed gardens located outside certain Pine Avenue destinations. Each box has an information card and a scannable QR code. Local landscape designer Michael Miller helped installing the garden which goal is to encourage people to learn more about, see and eat exotic-sounding vegetables like Okinawa spinach, edible hibiscus or moringa.  There are eateries like The Donut Experiement, Poppa’s Taqueria, Burns Pizza, Hometown Dessert to name a few. The General store, Olive Oil Outpost, Spice Merchant are other great stores to find unusual food items. Several boutiques and artsy stores like Bella by the Sea, The Island Cabana, Shiny Fish Emporium, Pink&Navy, Emerson Studio and Tide and Moon make a stroll interesting.  BeachBums is a quirky rental store that offers beach merchandise and rental equipment like bikes, golf carts and surreys. Technically not on Pine Ave but situated at the end of Pine Avenue stood the Anna Maria City Pier for more than 100 years. Hurricane Irma in 2017 caused severe damage and the pier had to be torn down with plans to be rebuilt and completed in 2019.

Duncan Real Estate is also located on the historic stretch with the address 310 Pine Avenue.

Pine Avenue Events

 

Trick-or-Treaters at Duncan Real Estate

Pine Avenue is a popular street for festivals and has seen its share of a lot of fun over the years. The Easter Parade is the first event of the year. It features a large than life size bunny that leads the group of kids from the SandBar Restaurant to fun, games and Easter bonnet contest to Pine Ave.

A Saturday in May was reserved for “Food and Wine on Pine” for several years until is was discontinued in 2017. It was all about celebration of food and wine found all over the island from about 20 of the area’s finest restaurants plus music, art and kids activity area.

Bayfest is a staple and the most anticipated island event. Since its inauguration in 2000 the all-day street festival has lots to offer. The classic car show always draws a big crowd starting as early as 10 am. The family friendly atmosphere features arts, crafts, music, food and a kids zone.

 

 

Holiday Walk 2017 Realtors Martha Jones, April Green

The Trail of Treats celebrates Halloween for the little ones. Businesses are welcoming Trick-or-Treaters in the afternoon hours on October 31.

Another larger street celebration is the Christmas Walk in December. Pine Avenue becomes a pedestrian zone and businesses open their doors to showcase their products and offer snacks, treats and winter themed goodies.

The yearly 4th of July, Veterans and Christmas parades also run along Pine Avenue with crows lining the street.

“Live like a Tourist” Campaign

To offset the serious impact of Red Tide for Anna Maria Island businesses the “Live like a Tourist” Campaign might just be the answer. If you think about it we all are tourists somewhere. The question is how far do you have to be away from your house to stop being a local. Manatee County residents are being called “day trippers” when they visit the beach.  Does this mean I am a tourist if I have to take a short drive over the bridge to the island? Also, how long do I have to be living in one place to become a local? In any regard, we all here at Team Duncan have a strong island connection and recognize the significant challenges for our fellow island businesses. We consider ourselves locals and can tell you the best spot to take the perfect beach picture,  how and when to avoid traffic, where to get the best lunch sandwich or where to go fishing.

 

However, now is the time to support our neighbors and “live like a tourist”. Darcie Duncan, the Chairman of the Manatee Chamber of Commerce and owner of Duncan Real Estate, encourages “everybody to think local. Let our wide circles of friends and families know that Anna Maria Island and all of Manatee County are open for business”.

Campaign Specials

The Waterfront Restaurant offers 25% off your bill if you mention their social media posting. The Sandbar Restaurant, BeachHouse or Marvista have $10 off coupons if you spend $30. Stop by at our Duncan Real Estate office on historic Pine Avenue to pick one up. Anna Maria Oyster Bar on the Bridge St Pier has $5 deals.  Have a pancake order or 2 fish tacos plus margeritha or a Bud light pitcher! Grab a BOGO burger at “Eliza Ann’s” at the Waterline Hotel on Sunday-Thursday.

Duncan Vacation Rentals joins the effort and offers 50% off the rental fee of select properties for 2018 arrival. All other vacation rentals offer a 10% discount for the rest of the year (holidays excluded).  “Live like a tourist” or experience Anna Maria Island as a local! Everybody is welcome! Click here to start your search for the perfect island getaway!
Please call Team Duncan at 941 779 0304 to learn more about this fantastic offer or send us a quick message.

Anna Maria Island Red Tide Fundraiser

A picture perfect sunset accompanied the diners at the Anna Maria Island Red Tide Fundraiser in response to the recent algae outbreak. 160 guests enjoyed the long table 5 course dinner sitting right on the beach in front of the SandBar restaurant on August 26, 2018. The event raised money to benefit START (Solutions To Avoid Red Tide) – an organization dedicated to Red Tide research. It was also helping bringing awareness to island businesses that are hit very hard by the devastating effects of this year’s Red Tide bloom. The impact was immediate and also coincides with the slowest time of the island tourist season. It resulted in abrupt income loss for many business owners.

 

Anna Maria Island Fundraiser

Sponsors of this event were many local restaurants like the SandBar, Anna Maria Oyster Bar, Blue Marlin, Dry Dock Grill, Seafood Shack and The Waterfront Restaurant. Others included Visit Florida, Bradenton Area and Convention Bureau, Darwin Brewing, Southern Glazers Wine and Spirits, Gold Coast Eagle Distributing and the Bradenton Herald.

Darcie Duncan, owner and broker of Duncan Real Estate, participated in the festivities. Pictured below are Carol Whitmore, (Manatee County Commissioner, left), Darcie Duncan (middle) and John Horne (owner of Anna Maria Oyster Bar, right).

New Margaritaville Hotel

The ever increasing supply of vacations rentals on Anna Maria Island will have a new addition just over the bridge with the new Margaritaville Hotel.

The Bradenton City Council unanimously approved the site plan amendments of the Minto One Particular Harbor project.  The reason for the changes was the proposed conversion of the commercial space for hotel purposes.  Even though the floor coverage of the commercial segment of the project will increase from 64 000 square feet to 122 20 square feet the footprint itself will not be changed. The new buildings will have multiple stories instead. The site plan amendment was found compatible with the Bradenton Comprehensive Plan and surrounding area.  Also, the city services like water and sewer will meet the changed demand.

Once finished the entire Minto development will feature 3 sections in total. There is the completed Harbor Isle with its separate gate entrance to the coach homes at Mangrove Walk and Edgewater Walk and the Waterfront Beach Club. Marina Walk is located behind the marina. It consists of 11 residential buildings and is also finished. One Particular Harbor is the final phase of the Minto project.

Margaritaville Hotel Details

All commercial buildings will be located at least 300 feet away from the residential section “Marina Walk”. This area is called One Particular Harbor and features the marina with 55 wet slips and 128 dry slips, retail space and hotels.

The originally planned retail space of 17 600 square feet is now reduced to 1520 square feet. This commercial area will be used as the ship’s store already under construction. The store will be located by the dry dock marina.
The restaurant space will also be used differently and will feature only one instead of two restaurants and will have 305 seats.
The planned hotel will be the first of the brand new upscale boutique style hotel brand COMPASS under the Margaritaville umbrella. There are a total of 2 hotel sites planned. One will be located directly in front of the marina with 30 rooms over 3 stories. The Minto representative Marvin expects the primary visitors to this hotel to be boat owners and guests to the marina. The primary hotel building will face Manatee Avenue with a setback of 150 feet from the right of way. There are 101 rooms planned over five stories.

If you like to stay directly on the island for a tropical getaway contact our Duncan Real Estate rental team at 941 705 3344, browse our inventory or send us  a quick message here.
