Downtown’s Wells Fargo Center is preparing for a $12.5 million lobby, cafe and common area renovation along with elevator upgrades that have begun in the 37-story tower.
Larry Chapman, managing director of landlord Miami-based Banyan Street Capital, said April 28 the lobby, elevators and Atrium Cafe & Grill as well as the common area bathrooms and corridors on the multitenant floors will be renovated over the next seven months.
“It’s funded and ready to go,” he told WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.
“It is going to set a whole new standard for Downtown Jacksonville.”
Dav-Lin Interior Contractors Inc. is the contractor. Kasper Architects + Associates is the architect.
The element likely best known to all visitors the past few decades, the lobby plants, rocks, water features and bubbling fountains, will be removed. “All of that comes out,” Chapman said.
