The Rivergate Tower is the sixth tallest building in Tampa, Florida. Some still call it by the name ‘SYKES’ – the name in red lettering at the top of the building that can be viewed from blocks away. Sykes is a call center company and one of the biggest tenants in the building.
The tower is also known as the Beer Can Building due to its cylindrical shape.
It has been coined the lighthouse of Tampa Bay and serves as a major landmark when viewing Downtown Tampa from across the bay.
