Historic Union Terminal Warehouse to transform into apartments, restaurants and more

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A project on Jacksonville’s Eastside is underway that will transform a warehouse with more than a century of history.

The Union Terminal Warehouse was built in 1913.

Columbia Ventures acquired the property in December 2018 and plans its adaptive reuse as a vibrant multi-family anchored mixed-use community.

Financing methods include utilizing historic tax credits and opportunity zone equity as key components of the capital stack.

The project site is at 700 East Union Street, and the work plans to help revitalize Jacksonville’s Eastside.

The site has been designed by Dasher Hurst Architects who says there will be market-rate apartments, restaurants, indoor parking, a rooftop terrace with great views of downtown and other retail spaces.
