(JACKSONVILLE, FL) – Hines, the international real estate firm, today announced that it has broken ground on a new 125,000-square-foot Class A office building for McKesson’s Medical-Surgical business within Southside Quarter, the firm’s signature mixed-use development in Jacksonville, Florida.
The new facility is the first of multiple planned office buildings within Southside Quarter and will consist of four stories with a modern design and attractive glass accent features. Designed by Rule Joy Trammel + Rubio of Atlanta, the project will be LEED® Silver and WELL certified. Elkins Construction is the general contractor and SunTrust Bank is providing the construction financing for the building. The building is positioned on the site to provide high visibility, excellent lake views and walkability to Southside Quarter’s mix of uses.
Southside Quarter will blend office, residential, hotel, retail, commercial and more, and will deliver the highest-quality design and architecture providing an integrated live, work and play environment. At build out, Southside Quarter is projected to have up to 350,000 square feet of office, 1,100 residential units, 140 hotel rooms and 100,000 square feet of restaurant and retail.
Centrally positioned at the southwest quadrant of J.T. Butler Boulevard and I-295, in Jacksonville’s most active submarket and the epicenter of Jacksonville’s key entertainment, retail, transportation and employment areas, Southside Quarter offers the ideal location for companies, tenants, future residents, shopping, dining and entertainment.
“We have a long-standing commitment and vision for this exciting mixed-use development and are pleased to kick off the office component of Southside Quarter with a high-quality, Fortune 500 Company,” stated Hines’ Jacksonville-based Senior Managing Director Lane Gardner. “We are pleased that SunTrust is our lender and are excited to work with Elkins Construction to deliver this Class A building for McKesson.”
