New Laura Street Trio Renderings Show Redevelopment In 2 Phases

Jan 22, 2021

Laura Street Trio developer SouthEast Development Group LLC has released its latest designs for a two-phase redevelopment of the Downtown property.

The renderings and site plan for the estimated $70.4 million first phase of the project likely will go before the Downtown Development Review Board for conceptual review in March, Southern Group lobbyist and SouthEast Development representative Matt Brockelman said Jan. 21, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record

The designs show the restored former Florida Life, Bisbee and Marble Bank buildings at 51 W. Forsyth St. Those historic structures comprise the Trio. 

Southeast Managing Director Steve Atkins plans a 145-room Marriott hotel with a full-service restaurant and bar, a 4,000-square-foot boutique grocery store and an additional 4,000 square feet of retail space at the Trio.

Atkins said Dec. 14 that Marriott is reviewing the adaptive reuse project as a candidate for its Autograph Collection of hotels.
