Slated to open in 2017, The Heights Public Market (HPM) will be located inside The Armature Works building: a 70,000-square-foot former storage and maintenance facility for Tampa’s streetcars that’s also being repurposed to house multiple event spaces, a shared workspace, a rooftop social area and two restaurants. HPM will include an array of unique food concepts designed and operated by local restaurateurs and chefs. Signature offerings will include everything from distinctive cocktails, craft beers, fresh breads and gourmet sandwiches to the finest cheeses and charcuterie, coffee, fresh flowers as well as a pizza parlor, ramen shop and bakery.
HPM will also feature Show + Tell, an interactive kitchen that will host educational cooking classes, corporate team-building activities and pop-up dinners in collaboration with The Heights Public Market tenants.
