Jacksonville University Welcome Center
Location: Jacksonville, FL
Construction Cost: $325,000
Completion Date: 2010
Creating a new formal entrance to the University as well as a functional security feature, the new JU Entrance Welcome Center is highlighted by a decorative metal arch spanning across the entrance drive supporting a new “Jacksonville University” sign in gold lettering. The security pavilion and gateway are carefully pulled back off University Boulevard to form a large circular landscaped approach including new pedestrian and signage areas. A series of lighted brick and precast concrete piers create a definition to the university’s property along University Boulevard.
