Developer: North American Properties

Design: DAG Architects

Value of Improvements: $158 Million

ETA: First Phase Potentially Summer 2019

Description: Proposed for a collection of parcels alone E Gaines Street bordering Cascades Park totaling approximately 6.23 acres impacting buildings commonly referred to as the Bloxham Annex, The Firestone Building (Old Jail) and the Old City Waterworks is the demolition of the current structures for a new development totaling more than 1 million square feet. Project components being explored include mid-rise residential, retail, office, restaurant and hotel space built to maximize views of the park and the Capitol building, along with pedestrian-friendly paths to connect the development to downtown. At the heart of the proposed development is “Festival Street,” a main corridor that can be closed off to support pedestrian-only events, food trucks, pop-up retail and outdoor entertainment. The preliminary master plan also features a wellness center fronting the park and a designated community arts and cultural space to support the performances at the Capital City Amphitheater and the events that occur in the park. These components are subject to change as community input is gathered and market conditions are assessed.

Note: Although the state of Florida is currently listed as the owner of record for the Firestone and Bloxham Annex properties, this is likely due to a recent land swap between the City of Tallahassee and Florida State University impacting the properties subject to this proposal and various other properties along West Gaines Street near the Tucker Civic Center and CollegeTown district.
