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.

“It’s a nice area, quiet and everything — so I think it’d be good,” said Little John Cox who lives on the Eastside.

According to Columbia Ventures, when completed in 1913 — owner C.B. Gay declared it to be “the largest and finest warehouse in the state of Florida.”

The Pivotal Role Wine Shops Are Playing in Creating Atlanta’s Wine Scene

Atlanta’s restaurant scene is booming, but for those who choose where to eat according to the wine list, something is missing: wine bars


“I feel like we have no wine bars here,” says Chris McLloyd, an Atlanta sommelier known as The Hip Hop Somm. He isn’t wrong. While there are plenty of restaurants with fantastic wine lists, Atlanta lacks true wine bars. Following the closure of 8ARM and its natural wine bar on Ponce de Leon Avenue, many wine drinkers continue to search for the beating heart of Atlanta’s wine scene. And they’re finding it in wine shops across the city.

 VinoTeca in Inman Park holds weekend wine tastings and offers outdoor seating, as does Press Shop in Summerhill and Vin ATL in Edgewood, which features a large outdoor patio and cozy seating arrangements inside. Kelly’s Market, a local deli across the street from Kimball House in Decatur, offers selections from its wine stash on Thursday evenings, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Elemental Spirits Co. in Poncey-Highland shows off the shop’s low-intervention wines and spirits during regular tastings.
