SUNDIAL is downtown St. Pete’s premier shopping and dining destination, an oasis in the heart of the city’s bustling downtown center. 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 video boards. 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. For more information about the mechanics of the sundial, click here.
