Federal Reserve Building – Historic Adaptive Reuse

Originally constructed in 1923, the Federal Reserve Building stands as an enduring testament to the architectural legacy and pioneering spirit of Jacksonville’s esteemed female architect, Henrietta Dozier, showcasing a commitment to architectural innovation, functionality, and unwavering quality. Designed in the Renaissance Revival style, this National Historic Landmark Building was initially commissioned for the Federal Reserve Bank. After four decades of abandonment, in 2020, JWB Real Estate Capital, recognizing its potential, acquired the three-story, 18,430-square-foot space for a transformative mixed-use development. Entrusting the renovation to Auld & White Constructors, JWB successfully revitalized the architectural masterpiece into a dynamic space that can feature a restaurant, business, and event facilities, complemented by a charming outdoor courtyard. The adaptive reuse of the Federal Reserve Building not only preserves its storied legacy but also elevates Downtown Jacksonville’s urban core. This ambitious project, a harmonious blend of restoration and innovative urban development, serves as a compelling example of how historical preservation can contribute significantly to both the cultural and economic vitality of a city.
