"SUNDIAL" in St. Petersburg is Now Open for Business
December 1, 2014
SUNDIAL, formerly known as the Shoppes of St. Pete, has nearly completed construction and is now open for business. SUNDIAL is St. Petersburg’s premiere retail, dining and entertainment center, located in the heart of downtown. Just steps from the world famous waterfront, SUNDIAL includes a special collection of shops, restaurants and spa experiences unique to the Tampa Bay area. The center features a modern, clean design with finishes such as travertine, quartzite stone, custom stainless railings, European shade umbrellas, skylights and state of the art videoboards. The plaza’s centerpiece is a nearly three-story working sundial and fountain designed by Emmy Award-winning production designer René Lagler. The sundial is a nod to St. Petersburg’s history as the Sunshine City, and was designed to keep accurate solar time. In addition to the sundial, bronze dolphins created by St. Petersburg-based artist Mark Aeling create a memorable picture spot.
