Stage set for Seaside tower?

Seaside officials declined to provide a rendering of the tower as it is still considered to be in the conception stage, said Pam Avera, vice president and general manager at Seaside Community Development Corp.

But renderings of the tower are available online.

The fabled Krier tower was designed by famed architect Leon Krier to anchor the town at its center. When completed, the area will be a performing stage/piazza, which can also be used for hanging out or dining.

In constructing the stage, in addition to concrete, approximately 700 pieces of coral were used, each one unique.

Use of coral was the idea of town founder Robert Davis, said Stein.

"It will make a fancy foundation for the tower, and when finished will look like a million dollars," he said.

The coral was cut and installed by Mick Dunn of Celtic Stone Masonry.
