Saltaire enjoys an ideal 1st Street South location on the quieter side of downtown, and yet is within steps of St. Pete’s premier cultural destinations.
Overlooking a tranquil yacht basin, waterfront park and private airport, two of St. Pete’s premier cultural destinations are directly across the street: the world-renowned Salvador Dalí Museum and the world-class Mahaffey Theater/Duke Energy Center for the Arts, the city’s major performing arts center presenting an array of international talent.
Among the many new attractions on the horizon is the new St. Pete Pier, a spectacular waterfront park featuring a variety of shopping, dining and recreational amenities extending out into Tampa Bay. The pier will also host a wealth of public art, including the massive and breathtaking new “Bending Arc” net sculpture by Janet Echelman, being installed in the sky above the Pier’s park in May 2020. A massive 76 feet high, 428 feet wide, and perpetually in motion with the wind, the billowing “Bending Arc” net sculpture is woven with 84 miles of twine and includes more than a million knots.
The new Museum of the American Arts and Crafts Movement will soon join a lineup of cultural destinations that includes The Dalí, Museum of Fine Arts, Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum, Museum of History, Chihuly Collection, Imagine Museum, Morean Arts Center, Great Explorations Children’s Museum, Florida Holocaust Museum, and even one dedicated to the history of arcade games.
New restaurants, shops, galleries, and additional public art are on the way. Performing arts centers, movie theaters, and indoor and outdoor concert venues abound, all within walking distance of Saltaire.
