2 Companies Bid To Redevelop Former Court House, City Hall Annex Sites
Two companies have submitted bids to redevelop the former Duval County Courthouse and City Hall site, now branded The Ford on Bay.
New York-based Spandrel Development Partners LLC and The Related Group of Miami responded to the Downtown Investment Authority’s request for proposals, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.
City procurement officials opened the bids Jan. 22 for the vacant 8.38-acre green space at 220 and 330 E. Bay St. The Ford on Bay includes adjacent land submerged in the St. Johns River.
The city has 30 days to release the bid amounts.
Spandrel representatives attended the project’s preproposal conference in November.
Spandrel develops new construction and adaptive reuse projects. Its portfolio includes a 12-story, $450 million warehouse-to-condominium conversion called One Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York.
Spandrel has additional offices in Charleston, South Carolina.
The Related Group develops mixed-use retail, multifamily rental, affordable and workforce housing and condominiums.
