Florida Retail Federation Mixed Use Office Building

105 posts in this topic

Does anyone know anything about this project?

Property Description:

Coming Soon! High-profile downtown building (200,000 SF). Mixed-use with office/hotel/retail space. Renderings and site plans are conceptual and are subject to change without notice.

Location Description:

Downtown Tallahassee - West College Avenue at Duval Street and Jefferson Street

I discovered it here after seeing that FRF just closed on two lots across from the IMAX theater.

The building is strikingly similar to the Tennyson. This is a surprise to me, but a pleasant one. I'm currently working on a feasibility project for an office building downtown, I think one is definately needed. Great idea. With something like this available we could have lured Torrey Pines.

That does look just like the Tennyson. 13 stories I counted, or thereabouts. What currently occupies this lot? Surely it isn't just an empty parcel. Downtown may soon become DENSE!

Another interesting thing I noticed is that on the map the website provides there is a certain Cascades Park on the southeast. :whistling:

Hmmmm! Cascades Park is certainly a good marketing tool.

Exactly. An private office building would, and someday will, have a tremendous impact on the city.

This project comes before the City's pre-app./post-app. conference on 10.16. Also included in this meeting is the Floridan project and the new proposal for the old Sunland site. It's all here in this PDF file:

There is currently a parking lot where this building would be located and a small white building. Are you familiar with the lot between City Hall and First Baptist church if you're lookiing from Duval street.

So what are the chances that a building in this stage of development will actually get off the ground? Also, about how long does it usually take to get from here to foundation to top floor?

Yes I know exactly where that is. I remember thinking that needed to be developed. Awesome!

How do you access the link to the City's pre and post app conference? Or has someone already done so?

is it true that this building is definately going up across from the imax?

the only thing is we need to stray away from this design, all the building look alike, i want glass, some nice architecture.

Yea I admit, me too, and I dont personally care for him that much either, unless he acts mature...but at some point, both sides have to stop acting like 2 year olds. Really.

I like Downtown a lot. He's the only one TJ hates more than me on this board!

^ :huh: I hate you now? I don't think I ever said that? Matter of fact, half the time, when I respond to anything on here, I'm not even looking at the screename, but the message. I don't hate anyone. But some comments run a bit Loopy in my opinion.

Sorry if it seems I act like a two year old when I respond to TD. I suppose he brings out the child in me.

:huh: still I don't recall having that serious of a disagreement with you. Maybe its a difference of perspective thing. Probably something a little smiley from place to place would have helped. :D
