Baywalk Purchased By Music Producer

Baywalk Entertainment Complex Downtown St PetersburgThe Baywalk entertainment complex in downtown St. Pete has been purchased by music producer Bill Edwards. Baywalk opened in 2000 and was once a popular downtown destination, with several restaurants, stores, and a movie theater in the heart of downtown. It is now nearly vacant, and the city is very optimistic that Edwards will bring it back to life. Edwards recently purchased and re-vamped  The Club at Treasure Island, which has attracted celebrity appearances by Emeril Lagasse, Wayne Brady and Caroline Rhea. His company Big 3 Entertainment,  was recently selected to manage the Mahaffey Theater.  Edwards also sold Jannus Landing, just a block away from Baywalk,  in 2010 to partner Jeff Knight, after a complete renovation.
