Tampa City Hall is a classical "layer cake" building on the National Register of Historic Places, completed in 1915 and stands today with major building components substantially intact. This building is one of the best known works of the architect, M. Leo Elliott and is one of the richest in detail of old buildings in the heart of Downtown Tampa. A four-faced clock named "Hortense the Beautiful" enjoys local landmark reputation and occupies the building's Bell Tower.

The Durable Slate Company won the coveted Tampa Preservation Award for our work on Tampa Bay City Hall, Tampa, Florida. Beginning work in 2014, we removed, restored,  and eventually replaced the copper dome, decorative elements, and fluted siding surrounding the base of the dome. We structurally stabilized the area above and around the clock, replicated the decorative pieces around the outer rim of the clock, and installed new masonry over the newly installed stainless steel headers to match the original look.
