New food hall concept at Sundial coming to St. Petersburg

Almost 2 years after successfully launching Heights Public Market at Armature Works, the people behind the popular destination are reimagining over 25,000-square feet of commercial space at Sundial in St. Petersburg.

“We are very excited to extend our brand across the bay and into downtown St. Petersburg,” commented Chas Bruck, Armature Works and BE-1 Concepts co-owner. “While we have an ambitious timeline for completion, we look forward to launching this unique food hall experience for the entire community to enjoy.”

The new concept includes a variety of existing spaces including LOCALE Market, Jackie Z Style Co., Wellness Center at Sundial, D-Gallerie Fine Arts, and vacant spaces on the lower level. FarmTable Cucina is also part of the project. Jackie Z Style co. moves to the East side of the center.

“When I first developed Sundial, I intended it to be a catalyst for growth in downtown St. Pete. Chas and his team created Armature Works to do the same thing for Tampa. I know that in joining forces we will create an incredible gathering place for residents and visitors alike,” commented Bill Edwards, CEO for The Edwards Group. “We are confident this will further elevate Sundial as a destination beyond St. Petersburg. We are also excited to welcome two new tenants, The Man Cave men’s grooming salon and Italian Idea, an Italian leather goods retailer to Sundial. Other wonderful, exciting tenants will be named in the near future.”

The new project begins construction early 2020 and is scheduled to be complete late 2020. The center will remain open during holidays. More details to come in the future.

“The last five years has been an incredible experience and we feel honored to have helped shape the food culture in St. Petersburg,” commented Michael Mina, Chef/Founder MINA Group for LOCALE Market. “With so many other projects and opportunities in front of me, I felt now was the right time to pass the torch. I am beyond excited to see what Chas and his team have cooked up for this community.”
