Barnett Bank Building

Location: Jacksonville, Florida

Designed: 2014

Dasher Hurst, working with our client Southeast Group and Danis Construction, is developing the design to adaptively reuse the historic Barnett Building as an exciting new catalyst for the redevelopment of downtown Jacksonville. The building is planned as a mixed-use facility including business incubator and accelerator programs, higher education, and residential spaces, and promises to be the “hub” of downtown’s emerging center for startup business. The 18-story building, constructed in 1926 as Jacksonville’s tallest building, will be fully restored including its exterior masonry, stone, windows and dramatic new lighting. The building is being listed on the National Register of Historic Places, thereby making it eligible for historic tax credits which will help fund the renovation. Additionally, the project team is anticipating LEED Certification for the project.
