Jacksonville’s Downtown Development Review Board recently unanimously approved the concept design plans for Jones on Hogan, Corner Lot’s new historic preservation development.
Citing the project as a nice addition to existing structures, council members also noted that it was a great opportunity for the city and expressed their support for it moving forward. Located at 502 N. Hogan, the historic seven-story Jones Brothers Furniture Co. building was built in 1929 and serves as inspiration for the development.
“The preservation of the Jones Brothers building has been one of our goals for several years, and we are grateful to the DDRB board and staff for supporting our vision.” said Andy Allen, CEO of Corner Lot. “With the help of the extra density, which is so much needed in downtown Jacksonville, we will breathe new life into a building that has been a cornerstone of Jacksonville’s skyline and history for nearly 100 years. “
Using a combination of new construction and preservation of existing structures, the proposed project will transform the entire block into a mixed-use urban development comprised of residential and commercial tenants. Current plans include 103 apartments, two retail storefronts and a parking garage. Additionally, the development will include co-working spaces, a fitness center, tranquility rooms and a terrace overlooking downtown Jacksonville.
Residents of Jones on Hogan will have convenient access to downtown Jacksonville, the JTA Skyway, restaurants and entertainment opportunities. Additionally, the building is located on Jacksonville’s Emerald Trail, which connects the urban core to 14 historic neighborhoods, parks and green spaces.
